The Deepest Midnight Blue

December 30, 2020

American Hat Co Midnight Blue Felt from Connolly Saddlery

What’s the allure of the new Midnight Blue color in Cowboy Hats?  People are curious and ask about the new color.  Whether it is attractiveness, charm, fascination, appeal, glamour, I don't know, but it all seems to play a part in the intrigue.

Curiosity comes from men and women alike, young, and old.  The new color suggests tradition with a twist.  Black based with a hint of blue adds flair without taking it too far. 

Customarily, fashion says, “me too” while style says, “only me”.  This hat somehow fills the bill for both.  

Midnight Blue is the color of the sky under certain shades of moonlight.  Cowboys have seen this color at some time in their lives, whether it was gathering cattle after dark or sitting under the stars with a sweetheart.  Somehow this color reveals a piece of romance, history and heritage found in everyone’s life.

Years ago, a song titled Midnight Blue was released by Lou Gramm.  The lyrics capture the mood and expresses feelings that this new color in cowboy hats is generating.

 

“I used to follow

Yeah, that’s true

But my following days are over

Now I just gotta follow through”

 

I’m the one who could feel the sun

Right in the pouring rain

 

I remember what my father said,

He said, “Son, life is simple” It’s either cherry red or Midnight blue.

 

The deepest midnight blue
