  • Coogan Cowboy Hat

    $375.00$805.00
    Mystery Cowboy Hat style is the COOGAN, worn by Clint Eastwood in 1968s, Coogan's Bluff

    With the world being scared into sheltering in place over the month of April 2020 we thought we would give our clients and friends a distraction to help the time go by. A contest to engage the imagination and powers of deduction, along with our love of movies.

    WE HAVE A WINNER! Well, we have been suitably humbled...this contest was posted at 1:42 April 4 2020 and in just 17 minutes(!) Ben Ellis posted the winning answer. Our mystery hat was the hat style worn by Clint Eastwood as Walt Coogan, in 1968s Coogan's Bluff.

    Thanks to everyone that played along and stay healthy!

  • Quirt Western Movie Hat

    $375.00$785.00
    Our version of the Quirt Western Movie Hat has a classic telescope crown, with a kettle curled and hand rolled and bound edge brim.

The Quirt Western Movie Hat style is also a similar version to the one worn by Will Smith as James West in the wacky 1999 western, the Wild Wild West - the brim is just rolled a little differently. We'll fashion it either way for you, just request the James West version in the production notes section of the order.
