Dear Sonja.

I have finally received my hat and it is just what I expected and wanted. 

I had to pay an extra £47 as an import tax, which made it a very expensive piece of head gear.

I am pleased with my purchase however.

Thanking you kindly Ma’am. 

Diolch yn fawr.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.

 I have just retired after having served 30 years as a police officer and I  always wanted a custom made western hat.

I now have one.

Kindest regards.

Hey guys!

Got the hat, and it’s the best one yet. Thank you so very much!

I tried to wait until Christmas to open the box, but I could only hold out for a couple of days *chuckle*.

This is hat #4, and I can’t imagine where you’ll go from here to entice me to go for #5!!

Have a great Christmas and thanks again,

Wm. Patchett

Hi Sonja, just a quick note to let you know my Hoppy hat was delivered safe and sound to me earlier today. It’s perfect and fulfills an ambition I’ve held for 70 years. I’m as thrilled as a little kid – you folks at Last Best West have made my Christmas!

Hoping your holiday season turns out as good as mine, sincerely

[Ordered our Executive Saddlebags all the way from Japan!]

Hi, Sonja.

The bags arrived safely, and I’ve just unboxed them. They’re gorgeous, and as good as I’d hoped they’d be.

For the first time, I’m looking forward to evening rush hour on the Tokyo train system–taking them out on their maiden voyage…

Subject: Recent order/purchase [Our Custer Hat]

Greeting Sonja, I just want to let you know that I love the hat. I had ordered a “Custer” hat from another hat maker and even though he made a beautiful hat also, I don’t feel that it’s as accurate as the one that was made by your company. So for my costume I went with your hat. Thank-you. Bill Miller

[Mr. James ordered our Augustus hat!]

Got My Hat Sonja,

And It’s fantastic, I had to put some steam on it and take a few dents and bumps out of the Brim

But I’ve never had a hat that I didn’t do that to

So all is well.

Thank you Very Much

Sincerely,   Elbert James

Hi Sonja,

I’m writing to tell you how much I like the new Sundance Kid hat!  I’ve worn it enough to get a perfect fit – it’s the best fitting, most comfortable hat I’ve owned.  Thank you again for going above and beyond in customer service.
