Need help finding the right fit for you?

The most important thing in a hat is the fit. It’s got to be comfortable. If it’s not comfortable, you’ll never want to wear it.

The perfect hat is lightly snug all the way around your head. Never too tight or too loose. There are many adjustments we can make to make sure you have the perfect fit.

From an open crown and brim, we can shape a felt or straw hat into the specific hat you are wanting. The majority of the felt bodies that we start the process with are a 6 inch crown and 4 ¼ inch brim. For the felt bodies that we do have in stock, we can cut the brim size down as small as you would like. When we made Merle Haggard’s hats, he would have us take it down to 2 inches. You can see from photos online of Merle and his hats, most of which started with a 4 ¼” brim that was cut down. Many of his brims also had a pencil curl, which we can do for you as well.

We are not limited to these felt crown and brim sizes, there are bigger as well as smaller sizes that you can special order with us.

Take your time looking at the various styles we can do and if you have one in mind that you do not see, send us a picture with some measurements, if we can’t do it, we will let you know.
