American Hat Company

Since it's inception in 1915, American Hat Company has been known throughout the world as the hat preferred by Rodeo Champions, Ranchers and Texas Lawmen.




American Hat Company has always been an innovator in styling, manufacturing and finishing. Prior to the 1950’s straw hats could not be worn in the rain without being ruined. That’s when American Hat Company developed a special water resistant finish. 




American Hat is also credited with developing the “open crown” concept. Hats shipped with an “open crown” could be shaped to fit the wishes of the customer. To this day American Hats traditional dealers order their hats in an “open crown” with a “flat brim” and they shape the hats to fit their customers. When a specific shape is requested American Hat Company has professional hat shapers who shape each hat by hand at no extra charge.
