Manny Gammage made this hat in 1973 when Texas Hatters was on South Lamar. It was a copy of one of Jerry Jeff’s hats. It was almost stolen in bar room fight at J. Alfred’s in Dallas. It was lost for three years. I walked into Texas Hatters in 2016 to see if David Torres could straighten out a hat that I bought in Santa Fe. I was looking around the shop when my eyes stopped. This hat was sitting on one of the shelves behind the counter. David looked up with a big smile. “I knew you’d be back.”
