    Mar 14, 2011, 3:27 PM - The Walking Dead Sheriff's Hat #1

    I've been searching for some time now and have had no luck finding an accurate Sheriff's hat like the one worn by the main character. To me it looks similar to the civil war officer's style hat.

    Anyone have any info?

    I've been trying for the longest time to find the correct Sheriff's hat that he used. At one point I saw the Alboum Hat Co. mentioned but I have my doubts on that hat. Though, the gold campaign cords look to be a good match. Just for reference, here's what we're looking for.



    I've found is this one. It looks about right but something seems off. It looks like this one doesn't taper like the one rick has. Dunno if it's just me or not. thoughts?

    http://store.killerhats.com/sf04752240skyl-r.html

    This one also looks promising and is also a fraction of what the first one cost.

    Thanks for the info so far! Lets keep it going!

    I contacted Baron Hats and am waiting for a quote back. Still no luck finding if its a store bought hat or custom.

    Well, THESE guys had a whole different hat.

    I guess only Rick gets to wear the really nice cowboy hat.

    You might wanna buy one of these to steal the cord off of, though.
    Trooper Style Uniform Hat, OD Green 7-3/4

    EDIT to add:
    Is it a Rough Rider in Chocolate?
    http://www.thelastbestwest.com/old_west_cowboy_hats.htm
    The way that Major is wearing his looks right to me.
    You'd just need the cord on it.

    I don't know the history of cavalry uniforms, but there's a sellar on Ebay which is selling this hat:

    ARMY,1ST,1 ST CAV,CAVALRY,MILITARY FELT COWBOY HAT,L/XL - eBay (item 360351430722 end time Apr-10-11 17:48:16 PDT)

    Sorry, the images are protected so can't post them (and also unsure if RPL allow links to live ebay auctions, so please remove if i've breached the rules), but this hat has the distinctive Grimes 'bash'. Not sure if they do it in chocolate brown though.

    I have a buddy who worked on the crew for this......he snagged me some bullet casings from set - whoop whoop - I can ask if he knows what hat was used, or could maybe ask a colleague from wardrobe.

    Any more thoughts on the Rick hat? It could just be a standard 'cowboy' hat but with a high crown and straight front to back dent in the top:

    I agree with you on the Crown, but the brim on rick's hat is pretty big. I'm not sure but I don't think it has the stitching either.

    Here's a side view of his hat, no vents that I can see.


    I'm diggin what I see on this hat.


    Just have to snag the right campaign cords.
    I found these and thought they looked right, especially with the thick bands that rick has on his hat.


    Hopefully fishybob's buddy can come through and tell us more about the hat. Hell, with our luck it was a custom job. lol

    The one from Sheplers does look very good, but ouch on the price. Was the hat band easy enough to remove on that one?

    I went for a Cattleman style that I got on ebay for around $30, similar to this one, which Somerset Fox linked to earlier.

    The gold band was simple to remove, the brass eyelets a little less so. Still, after just a little gripping with a pair of end nippers they came right out. Here's what mine looks like with the badge and proper gold cording attached:


    The gold cord was another ebay find, though I'm pretty sure the guy I got it from is now out of stock.

    Yup, slipped right off the top.

    I got my acorn off of Amazon, btw. Slip one end off, snip it down to the right size, and then slip the end back on and it's perfect!


    Skruffy, where did you get your badges? That's all I still need.

    My badges are actual Blackington police badges, custom ordered by a local law enforcement supplier. Convincing them to make them for me and that I wasn't going to impersonate a police officer was quite the ordeal... but they are the real thing (meaning a real badge, made by a real badge maker) and they look terrific. I just wish the better-resolution images of the center seal had come out before I got mine made. Mine have the Georgia state seal, which is incorrect.

    Interesting. Would they be willing to make more for us?

    How did you 'convince' them?

    I'm not certain. They are not the best at communication over the phone or through email... to finally get everything done that I wanted I had to drive out there and kill a day talking to them in person. They seemed tentatively willing to produce more, but that was 5 or 6 months ago... I have no idea if their opinion would have changed in the interim or if there's some magical breaking point at which they would balk at such a large order of badges (i.e. 4 or 5 are OK, but 20 is too many). The easiest thing, actually, would be for me to just place a bulk order online and see what happens. Because I am in their system, it's at least partially likely to go through. But at ~$100 per badge, I don't want to be on the hook for that much of an expense.

    The tale of my convincing them is listed out in my WD build thread (http://www.therpf.com/f24/walking-de...niform-106373/) but basically, I just went with some screen caps and told them what I was trying to accomplish. I was dressed professionally, presented myself articulately, and was overall deemed trustworthy so they were willing to make the sale to me. I sure fooled them!

    I asked the designer for you, & she said that she gets the chocolate Stetsons from Horsetown/Atl. and they'll know which ones if you call them and tell them it's a TWD hat. (I'm sure you could get it anywhere that carries Stetson tho..)

    I spoke to cast (and some of their parents) at Dragon*Con last week. Andrew Lincolns Stetson came with two holes to mount the badge on.

    Quartermaster has the campaign cords for $6.99. I talked to them today and they are putting together the shirt and pants for me and the stripe on the leg of the pants for $3.99.
