You never want to set it down on a flat surface with Cow Boy - Is Not Stuppeed brim-side down. Well, hats have a memory. The crown is stiffer than the brim and tends to hold its shape better. When I take my straw hat off after wearing it all day I have a noticeable red spot on my forehead where it grips my skull. Hats expand with heat, so if your hat is tight, it will loosen up on a warm day when you are sweating.
The reason for the tight hat is simple. When you are riding, whether at a rodeo or out trailing cows on a ranch, the last thing you want is to be getting off your horse every five minutes chasing that fancy new hat. If you have a herd of cows bunched up and you have to go chasing after Cow Boy - Is Not Stuppeed hat, your whole operation will crumble down around you.
Plus, a brand new hat can look worn out in a hurry after being blown across the Nevada desert. My dad feels so strongly about the importance of keeping Cow Boy - Is Not Stuppeed hat on ones head, that he has been known to tell his cutting horse customers that if their hat falls off while they are competing, they will receive an automatic 60 the lowest score you can get.
I know a Cow Boy - Is Not Stuppeed have actually believed him. Your final option for keeping your hat on without squeezing your melon so tightly is to add a stampede string.
Just note, that you will rarely see a stampede string on a rodeo cowboy and I think there are a lot of traditional cowboys that have a hard time drilling holes in their hat for the string. That being said, if you are comfortable with it, go for it. It is a far better alternative than chasing your hat through the sagebrush. One final note on keeping your hat on, pay attention to the brim size.
This may be more of a superstition than a hard and fast rule, per se, but I know some folks who would sooner chew off their arm than allow this to happen. It is well-known in the rodeo world that if your hat is set on the bed, usually by someone other than you, that you might as well turn out basically pull out out of the rodeo that day because the cards are stacked against you in a big way. Step 1: Spit in the hat. Step 2: Throw the hat on the ground.
Step 3: Stomp on the hat. Personally, I think I would have a hard time stomping on a perfectly good hat, but to each his own. Cowboys are darn serious when it comes to their hats. Accept, on the very rare occasion when you show up to the rodeo after the airline loses all your luggage and for some reason your hat was in there instead of on your head.
Then it is perfectly acceptable for your buddy to offer his hat to you and for you to wear it. And that applies when the remover or wearer of said hat is a woman. Many guys are probably still going to be a little annoyed unless the woman is extremely attractive. The bow goes to the back. It appears a tutorial on hat cleaning may be in order next.
This is a simple one, but oh, so important. Not unlike the tag in the back of your shirt. A cowboy hat has a distinctive front and back. People who are familiar with cowboy hats can tell within a millisecond whether you are wearing yours correctly.
Dyed-in-the-wool western folks can look at a cowboy hat and know instantly whether the wearer is a bull rider, rancher, buckaroo, or stockbroker. The characteristics detected by the eye including shape, material, wear, cleanliness, and color race through the brain in a fraction of a second producing an output that can only be described as judgement.
It might go something like this:. I spy with my little eye a spotless flat-brim hat, gray, with a telescoping crown and a beaded edge. This is intentional. The highest density of this cowboy subculture exists in the Great Basin region of Northern Nevada and California. And of course, wearing a flat brim hat with a telescoping crown. Without ever opening his mouth, I know this man identifies with the early traditions, or at least wants to present himself that way.
I know that he cares about the way he looks when he goes to town. The context actually does matter because if he is on a ranch, my brain will take that into account as well. The fact that his hat looks brand new leads me to narrow my judgement to two conclusions, either A. Therefore this is probably not a working cowboy or B.
Now, the characteristic of the hat that leads me to my final conclusion is the beaded edge. Not always the case, but often times it is. Sometimes his judgment is spot-on. Other times, once he actually talks to the person, he realizes that he was completely off the mark. So, when you go to buy a hat, know the story you want it to tell based on your personality and aspirations.
