Golden Gate Western Wear

home of Knudsen Hat Company

This was the hit of E.O.T.’04. It’s a beauty. It has a full 6” brim and about a 6” crown. The felt is thick and fine. The brim is curled up more in the back then the front. You would be surprised at how the brim stays clear of your line of sight, a perfect shooter hat.

We recommend a stampede string- our Extra Fancy is perfect. A wilder and more extravagant band looks better on the hat because of its proportions. Our thick, 1” wide, Horse Hair Band with double tails is excellent for this hat, but you may order a plain ribbon band at base price and put your own band on.

Remember Brando in One Eyed Jacks? I’ve wanted one of these since I saw that movie.

Please order now! We have a limited stock of these hat bodies. Some customers have, one by one, ordered every color that we can make.

We are no longer able to get the original horse hair band previously used on the Pistolero.  The new horse hair band that we have now have has tassels that are not as close around the crown (Seen above on the left).

We offer a new leather and raw hide band that we think looks great for the same price as the horse hair band (Seen above on the right).
