    NFL Fedora

    Bought fedora got it home and took a better look.. It is blue with a rope around it... Inside it has a NFL Logo 1970s.... on the band COLTS is embossed. Hat is made by Byer-Rolnick with Resistol on the band.....

    Did they make Fedoras for coaches or for superbowl teams....??? I know the Dallas Cowboys had a coach that was known for his hats....

    The most famous coach known for wearing a Fedora was Tom Landry of the Dallas Cowboys. As for your hat, from it's possible age I would say it was made by Resistol as an NFL licensed product. The NFL did not start regulations as for coaches and staff's clothing till the late '80s I believe. Today, coach Landry would NOT be able to wear his suits/hat at a game or press conference as he did then. He'd have to wear NFL licenesed apperall. It's a "bidness" these days.

    Yeah, it's one of the stupider rules. Mike Nolan got permission to wear a suit back in 2006, but for only two games of the season.

    I own one of these hats, in fact thats how I found this forum. I have the Chicago Bears Version. it is a navy blue hat with a ( Bears orange ) rope band. the hat is the same as it was when it was made. i bought mine from a store in kenosha Wi. about nine months ago. i was the first person to own and wear the hat. i only had it on one time for a couple of hours . The guy at the hat store pulled it out of the basement of the shop. at the time I was just looking for a navy blue stingy brim fedora, he said that the hat had been there for as long as he can remember ( never sold it cause thats packers country ). when I got home i looked all over the internet for info on the hat with no luck other than an old auction price of $355.00 for a New York Jets Fedora. The Jets fedora had some short story about how they were given out to the players in the locker room in 1969. The reason why I want more info on it is because I realy want to take it over to Optimo hats in Chgo. to have a new ribbon band put on it BUT if this is some rare hat than I don't want to ruin it. i would rather sell it to someone who would like it just the way it is. can anyone help with this before it's to late ?

    I'm sure there are a few thousand Bear fans who would like the hat as is. Hell, Graham over at Optimo might even buy it from you; He's a Bear fan. Can you post a photo?

    You need to upload your photos to a hosting site like Photobucket and then copy and paste the IMG code into your post.
