    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 beaver blend which is about @70 beaver and costs $725. . A Rabbit felt is $575 and Pure Beaver is $1000. Beaver felts cost more but they are made for the rain and snow and made to last.
    It is described as: : Classic western style with a 4 ¼” crease height and 4” brim as seen on the show “Longmire.” Shown here in chocolate premium beaver felt with a horse hair hatband sold separately. So, I know it has a C crown and is not a tall hat. I love the upturn on the brims, while it slants down on both sides of the hat, And notice it looks like a squared off front brim
    I have looked at over 1,000 hats
    Could anyone out there tell me exactly what to look for that is much cheaper?

    Contact Mike and send him an image. He can probably build whatever you want at a much more reasonable price. Check out his Facebook page for a look at some of his western builds.

    In the books he mentions wearing a Resistol, if I’m not mistaken, though they probably went with what looks best on the actor for the series.

    A 100% beaver felt is NEVER $1000. Unless it have some gold in it.

    yes, that is what he did. They filmed in New Mexico so I guess he picked O'Farrels

    That shape you refer to is a shovel front. If you know the dimensions of the hat you want, you can probably find a Resistol on the bay at a reasonable price and with some steam, distilled water and patience, create a reasonable facsimile of Longmire's hat.

    Way too much hat bling but if they're making them somebody's buying them. I have their entry level hat, the bar 50, that they call their "working cowboy" hat. It's $500 and comes with a sterling buckle set. Don't even care for that but it would just go into my parts box if I removed it.

    I have a a couple of 100% beaver Dorer hats. I think they use Fespa bodies. The felt is not like any Winchester body beaver I have handled. The sweatband has a hand laced rawhide (maybe it' s leather) string seam which is a nice touch. I have some 100% beaver Bailey westerns that are just as durable and have felt that seems the same.
    I have sent a few emails to Dorer over a few months but never got an answer. I am not sure they are still in business. Nothing is new on that website in a long time.
    I have had Mike make me 2 wide brimmed western 100% beaver and I am most satisfied with his hats. I have an O'Farrell 100% beaver and Mike's hat is its equal or better.

    oh, thanks so much for the info. Not being a cowboy hat Connoisseur, I know virtually nothing about the hats. You have given me a good deal of knowledge. Again, thank you. Regina

    Knudsen Hat does all TV and film hats. I was quoted $350 for the Longmire hat. Little to rich for my blood, but it is quality!
