    Head Measurement


    If you have bought hats in the past - the head measurement you get should be close to the hat size you are used to buying. Look straight ahead and have your helper measure your head. Using the soft tape - they should measure over your hair, just above your ears, and a half inch above your eye brows. Make sure the tape is slightly slack - but not loose. You should be able to feel the tape but it should not be tight - or the fit will be as well! Measure twice - to be sure. We must emphasize again an accurate head measurement in inches or centimeters is a must to get the best fit possible for each client. BUT ONCE AGAIN NEVER MEASURE TIGHT. If your helper pulls the tape and your eyes feel like they are popping from the sockets you may want to back the measurement off a mite. :) Match your head measurement to the closest corresponding hat size (at right) and make a note of it for when you order.

    Beaver Fur Felt
    Is dense and virtually waterproof. It consists of beaver and/or rabbit/hare fur blended with felt to produce a material that lasts 5-10 times longer than wool-felt. A fine Beaver and Beaver blend fur-felt hat can be re-blocked and shaped numerous times, and is the best material from which to manufacture hats. Supposedly the higher the beaver content the higher the X factor - but unfortunately there is no standard within the hat making fraternity - and a lot of confusion. On the Internet few hat sellers tell you what their fur-felt is comprised of - not to mention seen straw hats promoted as 100X.

    As a general rule of thumb if they don't state what the fur-felt is; chances are it's rabbit or Hare. Hat makers who use beaver fur-felt are proud of it and will state so. We sell 3 quality beaver blends of fine western hats - 5X, 20X and 100X. 5X is a blend of about 5% beaver with rabbit and felt. Our 20X is 50% beaver and our 100X is pure 100% beaver fur-felt.

    For an all weather hat - you can't beat a pure beaver cowboy hat. Light, stiff, and fabulous looking it'll shed what ever comes it's way. And consider this: Beavers live in the water, rabbits in the dirt. 'Nuff said.

    From the materials, to the workmanship - you won't find a better hat anywhere, at any price. We don't make promises - like all real cowboys we believe that just saying a thing is promise enough.

    True Old West Hats
    Order your hat in 100X undyed, pure beaver fur-felt, and be one of the first to hearken back to an era in hat making a hundred and forty years ago. The first cowboy hats were made from 100% beaver fur-felt, natural and undyed, and unless the cowboy lost it or had it stolen - the hat lasted a lifetime. For an all weather hat - nothing beats a traditional western hat made from pure beaver fur - it's what old west cowboys wore.
