    Well, it seems that I owe you an apology for my forgetfulness, Gtdean. Somehow, I never saved it to my favorites list, and it must have quickly floated out of my memory. I apologize and thank you for the reference, and I suppose I ought to thank T Rick for reminding me .

    A great photo of trappers/hunters of the American West. I will post only the link, since once on the page you can zoom in to the pic: http://www.archives.gov/research/ame...images/106.jpg

    Photo entitled "In line at the land office," and there are a LOT of hats:

    Apparently some of the Law of the West:

    Some kind of lot auction:

    I just really like this one. I need to read up on Faro, though:

    These were just some of my favorites, but there are some really excellent photos all around this archive, so I will provide the link:

    Just happened back onto them myself. It's been about 5 years or so since I dealt with them (not for hats though), back then, great customer service. Was going to get into Cowboy Action Shooting at the time, would still like to. Lost all my Cowboy sites in my "favorites list" in computer crashes, but ran into them in a search a few days ago. Was looking at that Boss of The Plains hat just before seeing your post.
    Regards,
    T Rick

    Great photos, Neo,

    It's interesting to see how variable the hats really were in the Old West. Not the run-of-the-mill cowboy creases we see today.

    A lot of the hats back then seemed really simple. A wide brim, a short, round crown, and no decorations of any kind seemed to me to characterize many of the hats I saw in the photos. Now, when you get to town photos, the shapes, colors, and accoutrements become more unique.

    No problem. I found the link while browsing through old threads while investigating a completely different topic .

    Midwestern... a Churchill hat made for Neiman-Marcus - pheasant trim band. I'm enjoying this hat.

    Thanks - I'm getting a feeling for them. No problem on horses but I have to pay attention getting in and out of cars.
