It's time again for felt cowboy hats to come out. If you're looking to pick up a new hat, you can save $20 on select Stetson® and Resistol® fur felt hats at Fort Western Stores. This coupon offer is available October 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.
All Stetson® and Resistol® felt hats are made in the USA with the utmost care to every detail. The furs selected for use are carefully processed to produce cowboy hats of the highest quality. If you've ever wondered what the Xs mean on one of these hats, it is a measure of the percentage of beaver fur in the hat.
When you go to buy your Stetson® or Resistol® hat, take a moment to consider the crease styles available. While there are many creases available, two common creases are the Cattleman and the Montana.
Left to Right: Cattleman Crease and the Montana Crease
The Cattleman crease is typically worn by men, and is found to favor people with wider faces and a square jaw. The Montana is named for the fact that it was created on a Montana ranch, and adopted by cowboys across the state. It features a high crown to help trap air above the head to keep cowboys warm on those colder nights. You can also find the Montana Crease referred to as the Gus, because of Robert Duvall's characterization of Gus in the Lonesome Dove miniseries.
From Stetson® you can choose from available fur felt hats that are rated 3X and higher, and if you are looking at Resistol® you can choose from felt hats rated 4X and higher. Bison felt and wool hats are excluded from this offer.
