Cowboy Hats

Casey Anderson shaping a Cowboy Hat

The Cowboy Shop does the Cowboy hat right, offering only the highest quality American-made straw and fur felt hats. You will also find that we offer a nice selection of leather, canvas, oil skin and wool hats as well. Our massive selection of western hats is available in a variety of styles, with sizes for children and adults. Visit our store or call us for special orders if you don’t see what you are looking for on the website.

Scroll down to custom hat shaping if you are particular about the look of your hat and would like to review crown and brim styles.

Traditional western hats come in varying grades of straw and felt. The higher the grade, the better the quality, and the longer you can expect your hat to last.

In Arizona, straw hats are typically worn in the spring and summer. Cowboys then switch to fur felt for fall and winter. If your climate is wet, we recommend a hat cover or perhaps choose a hat made from oil skin.

Hat Care Tips:

  • Straw hats can be kept clean by wiping them with a damp cloth, or a special hat cleaning sponge, to prevent dust and grime from accumulating.
  • Fur Felt hats need to be brushed free of dust and debris with a hat brush. Dirt particles can damage the fur felt. We offer both crown and brim brushes for proper hat maintenance.
  • For both hat types: If you sweat a lot, pull the sweat band down when you are not wearing it so it can air dry.


Get the look and style you want

On this page you will find many different hat shaping options. Although hats come from the manufacturer shaped and ready to wear, you may want to alter the shape of the brim and crown to meet your specific needs or personal style. Casey and Stan Anderson are ready to assist you in getting the look you want.

Sometimes it helps to send a photograph of the hat shape you would like to have. We often get requests for a hat shaped like the one worn by Little Joe in the TV series, "Bonanza," or from other westerns. Send us a picture and we will do our best to create the crown and brim shape you are looking for.

Custom shaping is limited to hats purchased from Cowboy Shop inventory or custom orders.

Please call if you would like to have a hat custom shaped, or if you are looking for a hat not listed in our inventory. Hat shaping ranges from $19.95 to $29.95 depending on complexity, in addition to the cost of the hat and shipping.
