The Hat Store has fit and hand shaped western felt hats for many famous people such as our President's father, the former President George H. Bush, Texas Governor Rick Perry, entertainers such as Dusty Hill of Z.Z.Top, Lyle Lovett, Merle Haggard, Clint Black, Alabama, Larry Gatlin, great western actor Dennis Weaver, Craig Biggio and Lance Berkman of the Houston Astros, Shaquille O'Neal (Shaq) of the L.A. Lakers and many, many more!
