First attempt at making 3:10 to Yuma Ben Wade hat band


Recommended Posts

I could not find the original ribbon used in the movie. I looked all over the internet, and contacted several hat makers that use to re-sale the Ben Wade hat, but nobody had it. The band is not quite as wide as the one in the movie, but I think the ribbon goes the with the turquoise stones well although can not really see the stone colors in the pictures.

These are photos I took of the hat in the Reel West display a few years ago.

This is the hat used in the movie. It was auctioned along with some of his other outfit by Sotherbys.

A great looking hatband you've made there.

Thanks BB. I thought making some hat bands while retired would be a good hobby.

Very nice!

Thanks SK. Now looking to make another leather hat band that may have been used in movies if I can find one. A lot of hat bands in movie hats were very plain and basic.
