New! Civil War style Cavalry Hat Cords. One size worsted wool hat cords available in many different colors. These are also sometimes referred to as hobbles, hat cords, hat bands, hat braids, hat straps, or acorns.
These cords were originally US Army issued hat cords for the US Army Cavalry Dress Hat, also known as the Jeff Davis Hat or Hardee Hat. The originals were made of worsted wool. These were issued with the Hardee hats, which were technically dress hats, but were worn in the field, often being altered into more comfortable hats or replaced by non-regulation slouch hats procured by the soldiers.
