I’m the handsome one looking at the camera
    1991 Persian gulf 1st cav division 3/32 ar

    Well looks like it’s time for another resistol image... this one I take the utmost
    Pride in, not just because it’s my actual cavalry hat (Ft. Hood 88-92) but I the knots I put in the acorns... those knots aren’t part of the moi for this hat but it’s a given for anyone involved in a combat capacity to be able To do this or not in a combat environment . (Moi changed 2016 to include all notnjust combat involved)

    This is not a confederate hat this is a 40 year old Cav Hat.

    I earned the right to wear as do all Cav troopers. I wear this hat for not just me, but all those troopers who went before me. Thank you to all of them for making 1st Cav what it is and for those current for maintaining that honor WHOOOAH.

    Now here what you see set up by military “memorandum of instruction” is my rank as a specialist e-4, of coarse my division with the number 1, the yellow acorns indicating enlisted and on the back is my DUI as in “designated unit insignia” 3rd Bn 32nd Ar.

    You know that this is also a hat you don’t need to remove when passing of the colors. I didn’t know that, I though it was just military caps and berets.

    I unfortunately Did not have the cav Stetson at the time and had my diamond horseshoe resistol and had to made a modification to be able to install and use the stampede strap or cav strap.

    If I were in my unit I’d have to unknot the cords to wear it in accordance to instruction

    The Cav Hat is not an issued item and is not covered in any of the uniform regulations but it is worn by the Troopers of the 1st Cavalry Division and many other cavalry units for ceremonies and special cavalry events. The type and number of items worn on the “Cav Hat” vary greatly and demonstrate the individuality and style of the wearer. The 1st Cavalry Division has published a Memorandum of Instruction (MOI) that covers the wearing of the “Cav Hat” and spurs for those currently serving with the First Team but also for Veterans the MOI is only a guideline of what right looks like.

    For those interested the 4” brim was authorized as well as the 3” until they phased out the 4” in 2007.. it’s now 3”

    So it’s not just the hat I wAs interested in showing butntge history

    It is a resistol

  5. Someone with Photoshop can remove the date for you by duplicating the background. I had Photoshop Elements on a Windows machine but now run iOS.
     
  6. What a beauty, DD!

  10. Didn't find any nice Resistols on this extended trip but did find a nice 3X OR in 7-3/4! Will be home late tomorrow night.

    Man, I am really hating coming back anywhere North with the weather going on!

    Gotta love the Waco!
     
  15. Sanford, if you can't find someone to Photoshop the date out of the pic for you, you can always crop it just a bit. You won't lose too much.

    Good news.. my refurbish and reblock is all most done.

    I took my 20x black gold (cattleman crease) and I took it in and soon will upload picture of the new Gus crease (blocked in notnjust a steam job) has a new satin 1 1/4” tan satin hatband... and the pencil crease... we’ll see if i decide to distress it level 1 ... nah that’s something all do myself as I wear it

    Pictures should be up within a week or so

    Remember mostly flat brim and a cattleman crease... hopefullynit will be a whole new animal when I get it. I got it a while ago and it was a 1980’s hat and I paid 90.00 with the cost to do the work I still paid less than half of what it costs new.

    I know exactly where that Hat shop would have been. It's right on the edge of Japantown. Not much reference to that store online that I could find other than one source confirming they were around in 1953.

  20. Picked up this "Resistol" cousin today for about the price of an on-sale six-pack. Branded as Raw Hide Felts (Spirit of the West) and made for a western store in OKC. Most of the store's ads I've found are from the early 1950s and the shape of the 'O's in "Conforming" lean towards that time frame.
