What would it look like to dress for the weekend in the 1950’s? Let’s have a close up look! img999 img002 img003

A self respecting man, by that I do not mean one of those soft Generals of today’s Army who only seem to publish their memoirs or have their female biographer peak under the desk, if you know what I mean, would purchase a hat. Look at these options to acquire the latest in soft styled hats.

They probably never heard of this Larry Mahan Milano Hat, handmade and woven in Texas. Only the Montana wild boys would know where to get one. The only place where they have 10,000 boots and hats in stock!
