This vintage coat was made by Arizona Hatters, 2502 N. 1st Ave, Tucson, AZ in the late ’60s-1970s and was worn on a ranch here in Montana. It is made from heavy waxed canvas in a distinctive dark orange color. It has a broad collar, yoked front and back, elasticized cuffs, a drawstring waist and large pockets. The coat does up with a combination of snaps and a zipper. The zipper is typical of the 1960s-1970s era, and was probably made in Japan, with a stopbox design copied from Talons of the early 1950s.
This vintage hat was made in the 1920s by the John B. Stetson Company of Philadelphia, PA from clear nutria felt with a “Boss Raw Edge” brim treatment for the Vic Hanny Co. of Phoenix, Arizona. The hat has a 4″ brim, a 1-1/4″ ribbon with a twisted knot and feathered trailing edge. The sweatband is marked LOT 6300, along with Reingold and Getz. There is a tag, which has been taped back together at some point, under the sweatband which reads,”Hat Satisfaction is a part of what you pay for herein buying a hat; there’s no extra charge for it. If you don’t get it bring back the hat; the money is on call. Vic Hanny Co.” The hat has six cattle brands branded into the felt.
This cowboy hat, made by Restistol, probably in the 1980s, is very close to the classic cowboy hats of the 1920s and 1930s, with its tall crown, Tom Mix crease, and pencil curl brim edge. It is a navy blue fur felt, with a two cord hat band. It was sold by “The Maverick”. with locations in Tempe, Chandler and Casa Grande Arizona. The model is the “Tempe Diablos”, presumably made for members of the charity.
