Resistol maintains maximum quality control and produces the most consistent and finest hats known the world over
Resistol Stran Smith 72 Foreman Black Felt Hat. This hat features a 4 1/4" brim, leather hat band, a unique "ranchy" buckle set, and comes in the color "black." The Resistol brand has become the greatest name in western hats. In an effort to better control the quality and flow of product, Byer-Rolnick, founder of Resistol Hats, acquired a fur cutting plant and built a rough-body plant in Longview, Texas. These acquisitions made Byer-Rolnick the first and only manufacturer to operate the entire felt hat making process, which includes over 200 processes. By operating all phases of production, Resistol is able to obtain maximum quality control and thereby produce the most consistent and finest hat known the world over.
