Always on Top – Oasis cowboy hat

This hat, from the 1950s or 1960s, is a cheap wool felt. The welted brim edge is something you see on fedoras, but you just don’t see on nicer westerns. A hat like this needs it for stiffening. It has a horseshoe shaped crease, an imitation leather band and a very thin liner.
