Cowboy Hat colors

Light colors will reflect heat the best – while dark colors will retain the heat the most – with black being the worst for staying hot (black absorbs sunlight). However black is the most formal color so bowlers and top hats were generally black or dark gray. For the first 15-20 years cowboy hats were marketed – your choice of color was black and about 3 shades of brown.

Cowboy Hat Fact

Humans have always used something to cover their head from the elements – but it wasn’t until the 15th century that hats became a fashionable part of people’s dress. Over the centuries many types of materials have been tried: Silk, velvet, taffeta, leather and wool felt.

None of these materials are that great for a working hat – because these materials tend to lose their shape with extended exposure to rain and snow. When beaver fur was mixed with felt or rabbit fur and felt, hat makers had the perfect material to make virtually weatherproof fine hats that kept their shape. A new continent seemed populated with an inexhaustible supply of beaver and so started the exploration and colonization of North America in the 17th century.
