Robert Anthony Coleman 1956-2014
In 2006 at the Canadian Meet my friend and hood making mentor Dennis Maynes gave me a hood unlike any I had ever seen. It was love at first sight. Its shape was somewhat familiar but it had been customized to give it a very unique look. The hood was made by a truly gifted hood maker named Rob Coleman. Rob and I talked about his unique pattern and we became friends. I paid him a royalty and named the hood after him. Thank you Rob, I will miss our chats.
The Cole-man II is a stylized Blocked Indian hood which includes a protective sewn brace plate on the inside. I have slightly altered the Original pattern giving the hood a sleeker look. the Cole-Man II comes with a two tier leather stitched center deck and off setting throat slash and Turks knot.
