  • Hays Cooper Cowboy Hat

    $365.00$790.00
    Our take on the Hays Cooper hat worn by Chuck Norris in Walker, Texas Ranger.

    In 1993 Chuck Norris took on the role of Walker, Texas Ranger and over the next 9 years it was one of the most popular shows on TV. During the 6th season an old west Texas Ranger character was developed over a couple of hours of a double episode. This was the hat style Hays Cooper wore.

  • Pure beaver belly cowboy hat. We've modified one of the hat styles worn by Nicole Kidman, as Lady Sarah Ashley, or Mrs. Boss in the epic film Australia, to give it more of an outback flair. Ours has a wider brim with a drover style to it. Shown in 100% natural color Belly Beaver fur felt.

    Originally the term "silver belly" referred to the belly fur of the beaver. By the mid 20th century it came to only identify a specific color. Belly Beaver Fur Felt is the thickest and densest of the beaver hat bodies. Virtually waterproof, it consists of 100% belly beaver fur blended with felt to produce a strong hat body very soft to the hand.

    For hat style you can go with the Mrs. Boss or any hat we currently make. Any hat, any style – same price. Hat Catalog

  • Billy The Kid Poster - William H. Bonney II He was twenty-one and boldly bragging he'd killed 21 men, as he stood trial for his life. Hard men were all about the kid, with sidearms on their hips and rifles in their hands. The wild young man was found guilty and on April 8, 1881, was sentenced by Judge Warren Bristol to hang by the neck until "dead, dead, dead." On April 28, Pat Garrett went off to buy lumber for the gallows, and Billy went to work. There are three different stories on how Billy got his hands on a firearm that morning, but get one he did, and then The Kid cheerfully shot Deputies Bell and Ollinger, and escaped the makeshift jail at Lincoln, New Mexico. Pat Garrett later said, "I knew now that I would have to kill the Kid. We both knew that it must be one or the other of us, if we ever met." Billy was dead barely 2 months later from a bullet in the back from Garrett hiding in ambush.

  • Sundance Kid and Etta Place Poster - It's unlikely there's a more shadowy figure in the Old West than Etta Place. There is no doubt that this was not her real name, as Place was the Maiden name of Harry's (the Sundance Kid) mother, and other women that were associated with the Wild Bunch used the alias also. Virtually nothing is known of her other than the fact she was reputed to be a school teacher, but there's some that say she was a Texas prostitute that Butch Cassidy took under his wing and gave a fake history as a school Marm, so she could have a new start. A stunning, timeless, beauty - she was seldom seen without the Sundance Kid, and they often traveled together as man and wife.   NOTE: Our name is on the website photo and NOT on the actual poster.
