Back in the day, at least back when gentlemen wore hats, (my dad wore a hat to cut the grass), they also wore hat bands. I remember seeing guys with Zebra hat bands and even Leopard bands. It was a way of showing off or at least showing their taxidermy and hunting skills. Im miss gentlemen wearing hats, not the fools who leave the tags on and wear them sideways; but Stetsons and Fedoras and even straw "Boaters"...and yeah I miss the taxidermy hat bands. I was roaming around the local Tandy Leather store and saw "printed" hair on cowhides and calfskins with exotic designs (Tiger etc).... Hmmm when is the last time you saw a Tiger hat band??? I think Im gonna "do" a Tiger hatband and a sling and maybe a thin accent on a belt..... Just remember its a fashion faux pas to mix your prints! The Fashion Police are watching.
