Design Your Custom Western Hats

There are so many details to consider when you’re designing your custom Western hat.
Questions we always start with are - Where will you wear your hat?  Hiking, at concerts, out at night, in the country, in the city, on the beach, in the snow, working. Think about what will fit in your custom made life.  
Then let's find a custom Western hat style that will exemplify that!
When thinking about what can be customized, you choose material, color, crown shape, brim length, brim shape, and the trim. Add special character like additional bands, feathers, distressing or branding to customize it even further. 
Our Guarantee - Did you know that we completely guarantee you'll love your custom Western hat - or we will keep working on it until you do?

True West Hats are Made with The Finest Available Materials 

European Hare

Custom Made European hare Hat

European hare (rabbit) fur is wet-felted, making a super-strong and water-resistant hat. The fur on this custom hat is compact and strong. We call the European hare hat a lifetime hat, lasting most wearers lifetime!

Pure Beaver

Pure Beaver Fur Hat

Pure Beaver fur is wet felted, iron, sanded, and steam shaped creating a hat that we call our "Generational" hat, as this hat will last most wearers a lifetime.  This hat holds its shape and is incredibly soft and extremely durable at the same time.   

Hand Woven Palm Fronds

Panama Straw Hat

We searched the world to find the best quality material to make our straw hats out of. What we found was palms fronds hand-woven in Ecuador. This material is incredible light with amazing strength, able to withstand some intense sun and activity.

Dress Weight or Western Weight?

Dress Weight

This hat comes in European hare or Pure Beaver. It is very light weight. This weight of hat is typically used to make more fedora/city styles a well as outdoor (think Indiana Jones) styles of hat. On a summer day, this is my go-to (or straw). This is still a great hat for wearing in snow and rain! We carry this hat in several color options - the maximum brim length is 3 1/4 and the brim is better in a scoped or flat. It can have a small cowboy curl if desired.

Western Weight

This custom hat is much stiffer and heavier. A perfect hat to wear and use while working. Just think - it's what the cowboys wear!! The brim can be up to 4 inches or at times even more, you can cowboy curl, flatten (bolero type) or scope. If you are looking for a heavy strong, stiff hat, this is exactly what you are looking for. We primarily make these in European hare - we can do a special request of pure

What's Your Hat Size?

To start customizing your hat, place a measuring tape around your head about 1/8″ above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. Basically, you need to measure your head exactly where the hat will sit.

Choose your material, color, and size; then 

buy your hat. Next, we customize even more! 

All we need to get started is color and material chosen, then we can customize crown shapes, brim sizes, brim shapes, and trim - see a few more examples below.  This step happens once the purchase has been made! 

Crown Shapes

*We hand shape every single hat we make - we do not use machines or shaped blocks - this gives us a ton of flexibility on our shapes and truly makes our hats one-of-a kind!  Don't see a crown shape you want?  Send us a picture, we can pretty much duplicate any shape. We make many variations between these including single creases, 4 crease and many more! 


Our number 1 shape - Notice the tear drop shape on the top of the hat.  The fedora shape is used with dress hats and outdoor hats. It is a classic shape and can be a tight pinch or a fatter pinch on the front - but the top always appears as a teardrop.


Our runner up shape! The Gus crown is named after Gus from the Lonesome Dove. A very classic Cowboy shape, lower up front with a single crease down the middle and rounded in the back. 


This crown shape can be hard to pull off for all - no pinch, this is a completely rounded top - classic of the bolero or Spanish style hat.


Open crown means there is only an open shape.  This shape usually requires a special request as it can be tricky to get this crown low enough to not look strange on someone's head. 


*We hand shape every single hat we make - we do not use machines or shaped blocks - this gives us a ton of flexibility on our shapes and truly makes our hats one-of-a kind! Large-brim or short-brim options are available.


This brim is completely even and flat - you can lay it on a table and it will be completely flat. 

Cowboy Curl

Cowboy Curl - brim edges are curled up 


Front and Back are tipped giving it a scope look
