  6. Thanks BB, it's a joy to wear. I wish Kevin was still alive & in that original Durango shop making hats. I'll buy all the pre-1990 hats of his I can find.

    A couple from today, this visit was a little bit of a let down though. More than half the exhibits were closed.

    Resistol Stagecoach. I flanged the brim flat using my band block that I shaped to an egg oval so it fits my head shape better. Gave the brim a kettle curl. Reshaped the crown without blocking it. Kept the original sweatband since it's in good shape. I made the leather hatband, I wanted to weather the leather just a tiny bit to make it look less fresh so I soaked it in coffee, let it dry and soaked it in cold water to leach out anything that might bleed when it gets rained on. I've made several of these bands over the years, I like the look quite a bit and they're pretty simple/easy to make.

  18. Like Deadwood, there is a lot of history in Belle Fourche. Some of the same people went back & forth between the two.

    This is my Resistol experiment hat. I used this one to practice getting an M-1899 Campaign hat profile. So now I've got a template made up to get the venting pattern that was made for those hats. This is just a practice run and I'll probably be putting this venting in a couple of my Western hats
