Sonja…I love my Paladin, Have Gun-Will Travel hat I received today! I am very pleased with the speed in which you manufactured and shipped it. The shaping is perfect!   

The hat fits my head a bit crooked like all my fedoras, but I inserted a shim you provided, rotated the hat just a bit to line up the concho with my nose, and it’s fine. I’m sure with time it will fit better to my  off-center head. . I wonder if I insert the hat stretcher you sent a bit off center that it will also shape the hat to fit me better. 

The conchos are beautiful. They were not mounted vertically straight on the head band but I just twisted them a bit and they look good. 

I also like that your hat has four conchos instead of three like the hat on the TV show. I always thought it would look better with four conchos. And…if I want to make the hat band look like the one on the TV show, I can add a smaller leather strap with a buckle on top of your concho.

I will recommend your company to my fellow Have Gun-Will Travel fans on Facebook and at nostalgia conventions I attend. 

I am waiting for my custom shirt to arrive. That will complete my costume and I will send you photos of me as Paladin. 

I have to decide if I want to grow a mustache or glue on one that I purchased .

Thank you…Daniel

Thank you so much for both your prompt reply and service.

I received hat and absolutely love it. It was between your version and The RJ and I do not regret my choice :) The personalized name label on the inside of the hat band is a little rubbed off in the middle and not clear, but that’s not a big deal. The one thing I wish your version of the hat had is the fat windstrap of Kurt Russell’s original, instead of the thin windstring as it really does complete the look, but that said, it’s a fantastic hat.

Again, thank you.

When walking around Northfield Minnesota, there’s a weird feeling in me that comes out wearing an Last Best West Hat, I know I have a great fitting, high quality, handmade hat, from a company that dedicates their talents to give us, the customer a great replica hat from an era of good & bad gun toting characters. That feeling brings me to the old West, and I almost hear and feel the squeaky hinges and blowing dust while wearing this hat. I’m proud to wear a Last Best West “Masterson Hat”. Thank you to every talented and caring employee that rode on the old west train of production making my old west hat!!! I may get another hat too when I get to that day. Well, I’ve got criminals calling on me to arrest them somewhere in the crevices of my town, take care for now drifters!!— Wild Marshal Bill
