Roger LaManna Pulp Cover “Tom Mix” P928

Roger LaManna illustration: Tom Mix saves a very surprised-looking lady on Main Street; she’s blonde, of course. Perhaps the girl at the saloon, perhaps just another reliable shopgirl, though one with a nice rack. Can’t help but love the “mix” of old west imagery with ’60s décolletage. Whatever happens, we know Tom will make sure they both live to see another cover.

Price on request.

Roger LaManna Pulp Cover “Old West Fight” P927

Striking depiction of prolific actor Jeff Chandler in one of his many Western roles, here likely as Cochise in “The Battle at Apache Pass” (1952).

Resistol Cowboy Hat Box 1950s A333

Written on the box is “Jack White Straw Hat” which seems to have been amended to Myrtle and is confirmed in larger letters on the other side “Myrtle White”. Also noted is the price perhaps, “3.50″. Judging from the design of the box and its imagery, this would have been some kind of a cowboy number, though Resistol made all styles. Now, whether this held a white hat, or whether it and its hat belonged to the White family, is anybody’s guess.

Price on request.

Resistol Hats is a Garland, Texas, United States-based manufacturer of premium hats, many of which have been worn by or given to notable figures around the world. The company is best known as a maker of cowboy hats. The company has long been an important part of Garland’s manufacturing base.

“If you are among those behatted hordes and live in Texas, chances are yours is a Resistol,” wrote Peter Applebome in Texas Monthly. ”Based in Garland, Resistol sells about a million cowboy hats a year, ranging in price from $15 for a straw workingman’s special to $3000 for a beaver-and-ermine number. The cowboy hat may be the single most resonant throwback to the glory days of the open range, the one thing that most says “Texas” to the rest of the world.”

The company was founded by E.R. Byer and Harry Rolnick, who established Byer-Rolnick in Dallas, Texas in 1927. At the time, the company produced men’s felt hats. The company used the name “Resistol Hats,” used to indicate that the hats could “resist-all” weather conditions. Some accounts contend the name was given because the headbands in the company’s hats were more resistant to scalp oil.

The growing firm needed to expand. In 1938, it moved to a larger facility in Garland, Texas, where Resistol hats continue to be manufactured today. For decades, residents surrounding the hat factory could set their clocks to its whistle.

Among the celebrities who have worn a Resistol are actors John Wayne and Henry Fonda; United States Presidents Lyndon Baines Johnson and Ronald Reagan; the Dallas Cowboys’s legendary coach Tom Landry, who wore the company’s trademark dress hats. Also, the Texas Department of Public Safety troopers wear Resistol hats as part of their uniform. These are made in a custom color called Textan.

In the Johnson administration, gifts of Western-style hats were a diplomatic gesture.

Riding on the cowboy craze of the late 1970s, “Resistol put its factories on 24-hour shifts, and its business doubled in three years. But booms do have a tendency to go bust, and by 1982 the cowboy hat had become last year’s Nehru jacket,” according to Applebome. The company is reportedly well diversified and makes a wide array of hat types, including safari and baseball styles.

In 1968, clothing company Koret of California bought Byer-Rolnick; Koret was bought by Levi Strauss & Co. in 1979. In 1985, Levi sold the Resistol brand to businessman Irving Joel. Since 2009, Pro Equine Group has owned Resistol.

Pepsi Bottle Cap Sign 1950s A332

Something about the 3-D effect in this wonderful article of soda-pop signage is just so deeply satisfying. It shows how brilliant the industrial designers of 20th Century America were. Not content to merely create a giant replica of the bottle cap, they have created a false perspective, subtle and almost imperceptible. Brings it to life. Gladdens the eye. Makes you want to put a nickel in the cooler and dig out a cold one. Which is the whole point.

Marked M-1-751 Made in USA on the bottom edge. 32″ diameter.
