  2. My most recent 3X Beaver. 6 1/2” open crown, 4” brim, and six cord ribbon.

    I gave this hat some tight creasing that was steamed in with repeated pressure on the first couple inches at the top of the pinches. I have a few very similar hats so I was going for a different shape with this hat. I’m also a big fan of the three or more cord “ribbons” over the ubiquitous two-cord. I also like the single skinny ribbon on westerns, but these six-cord versions are a personal favorite.

  3. Resistol 3X Beaver. It arrive three days ago and has cleaned up really nice. A full 7” open crown and 3 1/2” brim. The six cord ribbon is what initially attracted me to this hat: it’s a favorite ribbon style.

    Nice find, Brent. Those high-crowned Resistols are my favorite "factory" hat - well made, of the right proportion for big heads, and still common enough that I don't feel too bad "tweaking" them. ;)

  5. Thanks, Regan. I’m a big fan of them too, and lately I’ve been finding one or two a month. These really tall crowns offer a lot of possibilities for creasing.

    Curiosity got the best of me, because that shop is news to me.

  7. My latest 6-cord Resistol 3X Beaver. It’s also a model “Spur I????.” 6 1/2” open crown and 4” raw edge brim. The best Bart is that it’s in navy blue! The color is richer and more saturated than it appears in my photos.

  8. Three inch wide brim and wide brim binding. Too bad it’s not the size I thought based on the measurements provided:

  10. Nice! I feel your pain. I was hoping it would be just a “bit” too small for you.

  11. All part of the hunt: win some and lose some.

    The felt on the County Sheriff is surprising nice. It has a great hand and it molds easily. The sweatband is also great: way more than I was expecting for a 3X.

  12. Resistol Twenty Kitten finish. 2 3/8” brim with a felted/Cavanagh edge and a 5 5/8” open crown. Immaculate condition.

  15. Super nice Mike! Other that where you tore it ... (some of us can't have nice things). ;)

  16. That’s a beauty, Mike. We’ve all been there with sweatbands that look pristine but have completely dry rotted and fall apart when worn, conditioned, or sweated in. Heartbreaking.

  17. Resistol “straw” western. Very breezy and light-wearing.

  18. Resistol Plains with early brown Melorol sweat & red sweat bow, red liner with clear vellum paper protector. Brown tongue shaped size tag. Silver Belly with skinny ribbon. RE dimensional brim measures 3" sides, 2-3/4" front & back x 6" open crown. Made from "fine select fur" it was priced below the XDoubleX. Probably 1950's. By the mid-1960's the Plains was being made from "Triple X" fur felt & the Melorol sweat was being phased out.
