    A nod to one of the greats. On this day in 1980, Steve McQueen passed from among us. RIP my friend. I tip my hat to you, a Stetson Beaver 100 fashioned after the hat worn in the movie, Tom Horn.

    Robert "Bob" Norris, the Marlboro Man. Passed this week at age 90.

  8. I'm pretty sure that actor John Goodman was one of the Marlboro men early in his career, & Tom Selleck was a counterpart for Kool Cigarettes.

    This 2014 article says there were dozens of Marlboro Men over the yrs but doesn't name them all.

    There were but he was the original. Told one of his sons to never smoke and when his son replied, asking him why he did the commercials, Norris called up Philip-Morris and quit. There was a lot more to him than the ads. Rancher and philanthropist among them.

    Very inspiring for us hat hobbyists, thanks for sharing that one. Interesting side note, a couple of years ago as part of the Heart of Texas motorcycle rally (which is a state wide scavenger hunt), we were tasked with finding (and riding to and photographing) as many Dough Boy statues and memorials around the state as possible in a single day. That was a very interesting 24 hours.

     
  16. Cool story!!!!! We have some awesome Dough-Boy statues around the state here too. This is one of my favorites that I added my Stetson Grand Central to for an image.........a style the soldier coming home would soon wear again!!!! My Grand 3.jpg
