"The Boss"

 
          
          
 
 



An authentic "range" hat inspired by that worn by Robert Duvall as Boss Spearman  in critically acclaimed lyrical western
"OPEN RANGE"


Kevin Costner
gave us perhaps the greatest "epic" Western since the days of John Ford, with his auteur masterpiece, "Dances With Wolves". Then there was a period of, well... frankly, uneven productions.

However, he has redeem himself, and returned to his grand form some 14 years later with a more personal, intimate and mature work, the recently released "Open Range", a bittersweet love-letter to an all too quickly vanishing America.

In a smack-on metaphor to our modern era, the two main characters, cattlemen "Charley" (Costner),  and "Boss" (Robert Duvall)  are forced to test their almost instinctual values of truth and loyalty against the blinding power of fear, greed and corruption, a force that then, as now, seems to be winning all the battles, and may end up winning the whole damn war, not only because the evil men are the one's who started it, but because they invented it in the first place. Baron Hats, who has worked both with Costner and Duvall on many of their productions, was so excited by the message of "Open Range" that in its honor, we've  created two special hats, inspired by this "torch song" to a mythical time and place, and to values we seem to hold dear, but can no longer embrace. Both hats are crafted with the rugged simplicity of their ideals. And like the men themselves, these beautifully elegant hats make a quiet statement more powerful than the guns that defend the men who wore them.

A more classic style, "The Boss" is topped with a strong conic-pinched crown, shaped with an open prairie-wave brim.  Its almost tranquil form stands for an older generation, which posses a maturity with little to prove, as if their life experience itself has become their own soundless badge of honor. As a final key-stroke, the hatband is made of a single leather strap, back-tied.  (Note: The hat pictured has been aged. The hat ordered will be made with a special hand-brushed leather. However we can make it exactly like the production hat by aging it with our special process for an additional charge). "The Boss" can  be ordered in our special 100% Western Weight Fur Felt, or our exclusive 200XXX 100% Beaver.
