    Hi there,

    Does anyone have titles of books that are good reference for Stetson and Resistol cowboy hats?
    I am interested in dating hats by the liner.
    There used to be a website I could go to and date Stetson by the liner. That website no longer works
    I come across old hats here in Texas from time to time.

    Hi Brent,

    Thanks for the reference. I have looked through that from time to time.

  3. My understanding was a that the books available don’t give us what most are looking for. It also seems that a lot of the information, once we get back a few decades, comes from a consensus of thought rather than absolute proofs or original source material. If you come across and vintage 7 5/8 or 7 3/4 hats I offer a free evaluation and dating service and will return your hat to you within four decades guaranteed! ;)

    I have a book on Stetson hats, but like you said it is not what I need.
