Description

Nat loveNat Love Handmade Hat

Nat Love Handmade Hat – Nat Love was one of the first African American Cowboys. He learned the cowboy’s trade on Texas ranches, and in 1876 he won virtually every event at the Deadwood 4th of July Rodeo.

We decided to use long-haired, or Frontier fur-felt to replicate this hat for the Smithsonian Museum of American History. We also needed to start with an oversized hat body to allow us to do a 5 inch wide brim.

This hat can just as easily be rendered in our standard fur-felt, select your hat options during the checkout process.

Since the Dawn of Cinema the Western has been the greatest ongoing saga in film history. The first true motion picture was a western (naturally!).  The film was made by Thomas Edison’s Company in 1903, called The Great Train Robbery.

Most of us have a favorite western series we grew up watching on Saturday mornings. For many of the Baby Boomer Generation these would include hats from series like:

Have Gun Will Travel :: The Rifleman :: Wanted Dead or Alive :: The Virginian :: Wild Wild West :: Hopalong Cassidy

And then there are the modern westerns, which have gathered quite a following. Shows like:

North and South :: Gods and Generals :: Lonesome Dove :: Purgatory :: Deadwood :: Broken Trail :: Justified :: Longmire

And any lover of the western would have to include Lonesome Dove as the finest western story yet told on film. It tells the compelling story of 2 old Texas Rangers that are tired of living in a tame Texas town, and long for the frontier of their youth.
