Hello, everyone!

Just a quick question:

Would anyone happen to know what make and model of hat was worn by Mr. Eastwood in the title role in Joe Kidd ?

(Not the bowler hat that he was wearing early in the film in his "town dude" getup; rather, the flat-brimmed cowboy hat that he wore just before signing on with Harlan's group, and throughout the remainder of the film.)
I'm pretty sure that it wasn't a Stetson; their Website doesn't list anything like it, although I suppose that it could be a discontinued model.

I've seen one in the same style on Ebay, but that one was made of leather, rather than felt. (I think that it was felt  ???)

John, here is the hat tread I had started a few months ago but I am unable to pin point that particular make of hat.  All I have is the leather E-bay version that you refer to.

It is a 3X Stetson that was sold at auction in 2017 for $11,000.00.  It was originally purchased from Nudie's Rodeo Taylor.  It was probably shaped by the costume department.  I know a long time has passed since this post but maybe you're still out there.
