Some Western Noir this very early a.m. in my reblocked and refurbished 10X Longhair Thoroughbred. A little tribute to the '50s and '60s TV Westerns.

You didn’t use it as a chili bowl!?

Ha,ha,ha. I have a feeling that even the horse might be jeopardy if that was the hat in question.

No Chili & no Fritos fingers touched my hat that day. And I love animals; carry an old aluminum bowl in my truck at all times to water my dog with when she is with me. But no animal will ever be drinking from one of my hats.

I have a few O'Farrells from the 1980s up through 2006 and they were all purchased used. These were all made during Kevin O'Farrell's tenure (the shop is now run by his son after Kevin's passing). These hats are all quite nice and my experience while in the shop in Santa Fe was great (although I have not had a hat made especially for me). Expensive hats, but most custom westerns are. Seems like @RJR has a few O'Farrells as well so maybe he will chime in.

I like the second one as I see it as a Dashing Hero style.

Nice hat, Sir! It reminds me of Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright's hat from Bonanza only a different colour.
Thank you buddy! I actually sized that hat up four sizes from a 6 3/4 to a 7 1/4 to fit me. My Son was wearing it before I sewed a sweat band in it. After the size up I didn't have enough brim to make it the style of Western I would have liked, so I converted it to a fedora and reworked the finish on it.

Before:

Here's a couple of my other Westerns that I took apart and reworked:

I'd definitely like to do another Western or two.

Stepped out in the Open Road last night. A local jazz group shifts gears every year the night before New Year's Eve and plays a tribute to Hank Williams. I thought it would be a fitting lid for the occasion.
