    James Dean Straw Cowboy Hat

    Hey guys. I always thought this hat James Dean wore on the set of Giant was kind of crazy and cool. Anyone have any clue what it is? Or a modern equivalent? I did a quick search on the Lounge but didn’t see anything. Apologies if it’s already been talked about. Thanks!

    FREE Brown wool Catalena Hatters 7 3/8 western hat

    I recently bought this hat thinking it was fur felt but immediately upon touching it it became apparent that it’s wool. The hat is free to whoever wants it: just pay shipping. It will cost $17 or less to anywhere in the contiguous US.

    How to travel with hats

    I've spent years traveling, the last five alone a couple of times per month between NY and Houston, but have never taken my hats...excepting, perhaps, one that I might have worn. What I've learned, if anything, is how to travel light and unencumbered. What do you guys do when you want to take...

    Miller Fine Hats western size 7

    After holding onto it for a couple months I’ve decided to let this go as it’s far too small for me. It’s on eBay, but I’ll make Lounge members a deal if they want it outside of eBay. eBay auction has starting price of $100. The details on the hat can be found in the eBay listing...

    New VS Vintage Stetson Hats

    Am considering buying a stetson hat. Looking specifically at the Firenze, Pinnacle or maybe temple. I like the midsize brims, around 2 1/4 inch so probably Firenze. I wonder what the Firenze hat looks like, it is a silk finish. Is it shiny? Some pictures show shininess, others dont so much...

    New midrange cowboy hat quality difference

    I'm a urban Texas guy but wear a cowboy hat almost every day. I tried them as an experiment for the first time about 5 years ago, purchasing inexpensive hats, one wool felt by Justin, one palm leaf (store brand, but almost certainly actually a Sunbody), each in the $50-$60 range. I'm about ready...

    Longmire cowboy hat

    If you haven't seen Longmire, you need to. It places 2nd next to my beloved Lonesome Dove. Here is my question for you: I just fell in love with his hat. Unfortunately I can not afford. It is custom made by O'Farrell Hat Company out of Santa Fe, NM. It is a RCA #30. Walt’s actual hat is our...

    This seems to work on other sites, so I figure that it deserves a shot here. If you've got a quick hat question and don't see a thread for it, just post it here. Whether the question is about cleaning, anatomy of a hat, brands, etc., this is the place. Here's one to break the ice.

    Resistol NFR 40th Anniversary (1998) Cowboy Hat 6X Beaver Never Worn Sz 7 1/8

    Hard to believe anything from 1998 is vintage. What does that make me? This hat is never worn, brand new condition. Tags are still in the lining. This is a rare find. A current Resistol 6X in this style is $200-$225. With the pristine condition, rarity and National Finals Rodeo connection, I am...
