Brown wool “Bronco” hat by American Cowboys

 

We tip our hats to this classic Western-style hat in brown wool, made by the American Cowboys label.  This particular model is called the Bronco and is of a medium-light brown with a thin brown band around the base of the crown and has a 3 1/2″ brim.  The crown is in the ubiquitous “Montana Peak” style.  The inside of the crown is lined in a wine-colored fabric with the company logo in gold.  This is a dress hat, which is very important to fans of Western wear!  You don’t want to be confusing your work hat with your fancy occasion hat.  Fun fact:  Custom dictates that you lift or tip your hat for strangers, but you completely take the hat off for friends.  We’d be much obliged if you clicked here for more views and sizing information!

 

 

The Vintage Ten Gallon Fedora

Well, that’s not exactly a grammatically correct hat title but it rolled off the tongue nicely. I’ve just been spying too many cuties not to comment on the fabulous big hat trend we’re seeing everywhere currently. I feel like these hats will drip into Spring – they go with almost any outfit terrifically and can be accessorized in so many ways; feathers, jewels, stones, fringe, leather, fur, trinkets.

Wide-brimmed fedoras in neutral colors conjure a stud-like Indiana Jones feel, cavaliers adorned with brightly tinted plumage sing fancy splendor and the classic Americana ten gallon Western hats are just so John Wayne dusty and fantastic.
