buy smokey bear hat


I love Smokey the bear. I liked the look of this shirt and ordered it. I was not disappointed. I got tons of compliments on the color and on how unique it is. It is super soft and comfortable high quality flannel. In a nutshell, I absolutely love this shirt.

this is the second hat i have purchased. the first was for me and the husband tried mine and loved it. but i loved it too much to give it to him so i had to buy this one. he has a whole story about meeting the real smokey so that makes it even better. we both love the fit and look. quick shipping and awesome communication.

Several US state police services and federal agencies[18][19] wear campaign hats. So common is use of the campaign hat among state police agencies that state troopers are sometimes referred to as "smokey bears" or "smokeys," after Smokey Bear.

When the first "authorized" uniforms were ordered in 1911, theyincluded a "felt camping hat after the Stetson style." [49] It can be assumed that this was acontinuation of what the rangers were familiar with. With the orderingof uniforms in 1912, though, an "Alpine" style hat was specified. [50] From the drawing submitted by SigmundEisner, it would appear that this was the forerunner of the currentstiff-brimmed hat. Photographs bear this out. They show a hat similar towhat the rangers wear now, except for a higher "Montana" peak. Thiswould seem to prove that when Mark Daniels attempted to formalize thePark Service uniform in 1914, the hat was already being used. [51]

Office Order No. 350 of June 15, 1938, changed the color back to"belly" and added three ventilator holes on each side. They were to bearranged in the "form of an equilateral triangle, bottom leg of triangle1 1/2 inches above brim, legs of triangle 1 inch."

While Smokey no longer stars in the Saturday morning cartoon series so popular in the 1960s, he is appearing in public service announcements in English, Korean, Vietnamese, Spanish, and Chinese. In one announcement the bear, created during the era of big bands and radio, dons a vest and gold chain and raps with a group of teens.

My analysis of Smokey Bear examines the formal properties of forestfire advertisements and considers the historical situation in which theyappeared. My purpose is to examine the way Smokey Bear's animal/human hybridism constructs human response. One of the most powerfulaspects of the bear's persona is his character, in the sense that Aristotleconstrued it as ethos, "the most effective means of persuasion" (Rhetoric,1.2.1356.10). An enduring American cultural icon, Smokey Bear's "ac-tions and appearance (clothing grooming, possessions)... contribute to thecharacterization to produce a persuasive communication designed to elicita particular response from an audience" (Mulvey and Medina 224).Kenneth Burke called the process of persuasion through characteridentification. The unspoken trace in Smokey's mediated and fictionalanimality is his alignment with white, working-class males. The boundarybetween human and animal and between male and female is at his beltl ine.While Smokey Bear's attire is based on that of the National Park Service,he is noticeably without the traditional forest green uniform that wasstandard from the 1920s. Clad in dungarees, Smokey Bear is shown to bea man of the people, a worker, one of what the Beats liked to call the"fellahin," as Gary Snyder hints when he writes in his "Smokey the BearSutra" that the bear is "[w]earing the blue work overal Is symbolic ofslavesand laborers, the countless men oppressed by a civilization that claims tosave but often destroys" (26). Smokey's uniform is most like the garb ofthe Depression-Era Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a group ofworkers who embodied the value of service and aligned it with patriotismand the parks. The connection between the CCC and Smokey Bear isillustrated by a 1938 poster known as "The Spirit of CCC" or "The Spiritof 1938," painted by Harry Rossoll, who was later to become one of theSmoky Bear illustrators. One ofthe CCC workers is shirtless like Smokey;he wears dungarees, and, again like Smokey, he carries a shovel.The jeans were a clever visual rhetorical move on the part of the AdCouncil because, while Smokey's hat aligns him with the authority of thePark Service rangers (and gives him the history of the Stetsons worn bylegendary Texas Rangers), his pants make him one of the people. In afurther confusion over who owns Smokey Bear, though, NPS ranger'shats are commonly known as "Smokey Bear hats," even though Smokeywas a product of the U.S. Forest Service. 041b061a72
