I prefer a Fedora, even if it is hot. But, I don't wear it often these days. Just looks out of place when wearing shorts and flip flops. I also have never worn a straw hat, are they comfy?

Rowdy, You know my favorite hat. It is the one in my profile picture. When we were shooting with the Bluegrass Rangers you got a deal with Beaver Brand Hats back about 1996. The hat has Bluegrass Rangers in the hat liner. You hand formed the hat for me. It has a kettle curl and is black in color. Thanks again for getting it and hand forming it for me. I added the stampede string when I was out in Texas.
As far as straw hats, I have one from Mike's Hatters. It is ok in hot weather, but can't tell a lot of difference. Tj

By the way my profile picture was done by Greg Gaby of the Johnson County Rangers NCOWS Club

I have a Beaver Brand ďgamblerĒ style hat that Iím partial to. It isnít appropriate historically, but I wear it outside of SASS. At a SASS event Iím currently sporting a derby, cause Iím more of a city slicker.

I bought a new boss of the plains but is was too small, had it stretched and was still too small
to where it gave me a headache. I bought my current hat for $10 at a NCOWS convention
then bought a tanned rattlesnake hide and made a hatband, been wearing it for years, and it's
looking like it. Gets pretty hot on some days, so I got a straw hat that I wear if its really hot.

Mine is a light grey custom made for me by Bob "All Hat" Dumez in California.  It's copied from a Randolph Scott hat from about 1955, six inch crown , five inch brim, and the best looking hat I've ever owned.

WOW!!  Hard question.

I have 6 "cowboy" type hats.  I have a straw Top Hat for fun, I have beaver Top Had for Steampunk and a "John Bull" hat with Goggles for Steampunk, A couple of "palm" hats for warm weather (hot) and about 8 "thug" caps.  They each become my "favorite" on the day I wear em.

I have a large Sunbody straw hat the I shaped as a classic sombrero that is my favored hat in the summer.  

I have a black fur/felt hat of decent quality (IIRC a  Resistol) that I purchased for about $30 at a resale shop.  I put a nice beaded and quilled hat band on it and opened up the crown. This is my go to hat.  I also have a large bowler with a curled brim that works for a town hat.  

And, of course, a red cotton headband (sans hat) for an Apache, and a couple of raptor feathers (imitation by law) either as a drop or standing for Plains Indian impressions.

My favorite hat was crafted by Matt at Hamilton Dry Goods. Grin



I HATE the idea of my hat getting ruined by my sweat during the summer heat so I bought a Cody James Gus style sombrero before my last local match.

Can't really say, as I have 50-60 hats.  I can pick what guns I am going to use easier.

I wear glasses so any rain means either hat of some sort or constant probs with vision. I choose the hat, favorites I have a few:
- straw Stetson, any longer trip with open car is not compleate without it
- brown leather Minnetonka for winter or cold
- traditional Tilley, my go to when rain or sun hits when shooting
- a couple of This is Cambridge cycling caps, I choose to ignore the Velominati rules and also wear them when not with bike
- bunch of tradional baseball caps, Valtra tractor pulling team and Uberti being the 'stylish' favorites.

EDIT:
And obviously, just having noted in what section this thread is in, only the first 3 qualify Wink

I like my Wild Bunch drill instructor style Montana peak hats the best. My least favorite is my Spanish American War campaign hat.

Sure hated to hear Tim Bender had retired . The last hat I purchased was from him . My old favorite hat is getting in sad shape . That was why I purchased a hat from Tim . I guess you could say it's my Sunday hat .   I guess it's about time to ease it into service .

Pitspitr, I've seen that fold up campaign hat a few times. I like it, wish I had one. But I gotta say that skimmer is pretty dapper.
