Despite the fact that the majority of hats being worn by Texans in this series are "Cowboy" style hats, and Confederate style military hats, the reality was very different. The majority of Texans would have worn low crowned, wide brimmed hats, known as Sombrero Cordobas, such as that worn by Zorro and Mexicans of the period. The hats sported by Juan Seguin and Deaf Smith are fairly accurate, though Deaf's brim is not wide enough. There would also have been many wide crowned top hats, seen in the style of the "Mad Hatter", and almost shapeless "floppy" wide brimmed, round crowned hats would have been worn by the poorest. To see accurate portrayals of the hats of the period, watch The Alamo (2004). See more
