This iconic weapon helped shape Eastwood’s iconic image as both gunfighter and bounty hunter.
The Man with No Name wears a brown felt cowboy hat featuring an asymmetrical self-bound brim and distressed telescope crown. He accessorizes it with a silvertoned single prong buckle and dark leather strapped hatband.
He donned an olive-tinted beige frock coat with long slits in the side for easy access to his holstered Colt. While more casual than Tuco’s coat, he still carried himself with confidence as he chased after his prey in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

With its pencil-curled hatband and available in either beaver or rabbit felt materials, this headpiece would make an elegant addition to any ensemble.
