My moniker is my great grandfather's name. He served with the 2nd Florida Mounted Regiment in the Civil War. Afterward, he came home, packed his wife into a wagon, and was one of the first NorteAmericanos on the Frio River southwest of San Antonio ..... Kinda where present day Dilley is ...

Yeah but then the sweat stains would have looked real.  Never understood why it was so hard to sweat up a hat so one had to have fake ones put on.  They always look so fake anyway and folks laugh at them behind their backs.

The non-fake "distressed" look.

This MUST be true:  If I see you in that hat, I feel distressed!

But Jeff, at least you'd feel well fed. ;)  Besides all that dirt or rather the dirt, soot, flour. lard and other stuff including the chocolate stain (It blew into a pan that was soaking that Gopher Grease had mixed up a chocolate in.) were honestly earned.

VERY Honestly! 

My favorite hat, a Renegade, looks very sweated in/on ... because it is.  But it also has those tell-tale odd little ding markBP cartridges repeatedly bouncing off it!
