OLD WEST COWBOY HATS
The Cowboy Hat defines the wearer
A traditional cowboy prized his hat above all things – with good reason. It was often worth a month or two’s wages – and that made it very expensive. The cowboy likely spent hours personalizing the hat with creases to the crown and molding the brim – that made it his.
A 19th century cowboy would go to hell and back to retrieve a misplaced old west hat and it was seldom further than an arm’s length away.
Old Fashion Quality
You won’t find these western hats at your nearest mall. Many of the brim shapes or crowns may look familiar, may even be the same, but they are poor imitations, cookie-cutter designs; mass produced and available virtually anywhere. Don’t follow the herd – strike out on your own with a classic custom western hat from The Last Best West.
