Hat bands for Cowboy Hats

Buckeroo Hat bands from The Last Best West Thi is our Barbwire Custom Hat Band

Our creative and original hat band designs are just the thing to jazz up an old hat, or give a new hat a different look. The designs are different enough to appeal to most people, and a great gift for any cowboy that likes to stand out from the herd!

Hat bands for Cowboy Hats – freshen the look of your favorite old hat with a new leather hat band from The Last Best West. If your old hat has a grosgrain ribbon and bow, our hatbands for cowboy hats are designed to just slide over-top. This gives you a second unique look to your hat, just like the old-time cowboys used to do, and easily slides off, allowing for use on other hats.

How it Works

Shotgun Willie leather hat band

Back of our leather replacement hatbands

We have adapted a stained oak slider and lace so every customer gets a great fit for their leather replacement hatband for their cowboy hat. It’s fast and easy and you can just take our hat band off and put it on a different hat.

And if you don’t want to take off your old ribbon and bow hat band, the beauty of our replacement leather hatbands is you can simply slide our custom hatbands over top of your old ribbon and bow.

To put on your new custom hatband, put your hat on and while looking in the mirror slide your new Last Best West Hat Band over and down the crown, center the design, then reach behind the hat and pull the slider tight. Now you have two different looks for the same hat, and a dang fine fit every time.

DESIGN NOTE
Our hat bands, like our hats, and other cowboy leather is made by hand. Each band is unique, well made and will last. Your hat band will be similar but not exactly what is seen here.

Our Hatbands for Cowboy Hats that are dyed – like Shotgun Willie above – have a minimum of 2 coats of dye, the leather is then buffed and sealed. Our dyeing procedure produces a natural aged look.

Cowboys talk low, talk slow, and wear a nice hat band!

History of Hat Bands

In the middle ages when men went off to war it was customary to take a feather from their loved one. Because men were mostly right-handed, a man would typically lead with their right side when fighting with a sword. Now where the hell to put the feather? At first they would stick the feather in the band of their hat on the right. But soldiers quickly learned it could affect their seeing, so the cavaliers adapted and the feather was moved to the left side of the crown, where it remains today.
