ABOUT OUR BEAVER FUR-FELT HAT BODIES

Like all hat makers we make our hats from rough hat bodies that we buy from a fur-felt factory. To make your hat we start with the best hat body available, and then our master hatter works his magic to produce one of the finest hats you will ever put on your head.

We offer all our hat styles in 3 different qualities; 5x, 50x and 100x (see below) and all our hats are made from 8oz. western weight beaver fur-felt. The weight of the fur-felt refers to the thickness of the hat body, with a western weight hat body being almost twice as thick as a 4.5 oz. dress weight hat body.

WHAT THAT MEANS TO YOU

Beaver fur-felt is the best material to make fine hats from. Oh, you can buy exotic hat bodies for a lot more money, but nothing will do a better job than a pure beaver hat body for keeping the weather off your head. And it will look real smart doing it! The heavier western weight makes the hat much stiffer, better able to repel the wind, rain and snow. And in the summer time a wide brimmed hat will be your best friend, shielding you from the harmful effects of the sun.

The Zen of Hats

Like all pieces of clothing your hat is an extension of you. We prefer to focus on the emotional impact a hat makes, and like all things of this nature it is best viewed at a distance of about eight feet. Because when you are out in public, most people will not get closer than that, and it is unlikely they will notice if the hat has a 2 3/4 inch brim or a 3 inch brim. It’s the impression the hat and the person wearing it makes, that will stay with them. 

Our hats are made by hand so crown and brim measurements are approximate.

Your hat comes complete with your name embossed on the sweatband in gold colored foil inside the hat. Made with pride in the USA by Hats of Hollywood

It isn’t what I do, but how I do it. It isn’t what I say, but how I say it,

and how I look when I do it and say it. – Mae West –

Hats of Hollwopod Hat Liner

Hats of Hollywood Hat Liner

This is our hat liner. Our logo in silver on a navy blue acetate liner with plastic cover.  A quality hat will have a hat liner to protect your hat from sweat, which is acidic in nature and full of bacteria that will rot the fur-felt if allowed to adsorb into the hat. Everyone’s sweat varies in acidity so wiping the hat liner and sweat band with a damp soapy cloth after heavy use is a great idea.

Your hat personalized with your name inside the hat

Your hat comes personalized with your name

We emboss your name on the sweatband with gold colored metallic foil. No additional charge

Refund Policy

All our hats are made to order and personalized with your name. There are no refunds or exchanges, so please make absolutely sure of the hat selection and size. If issues do arise rest assured your 100% satisfaction is important to us and we will work with you to resolve them. There is only one thing we can not correct that is the color so please take due care with your color choice.

Ordering the right size

You should know your hat size, if unsure stop by a hat store or the mall and find your best fit. Fitted hats will have a tag in the crown with either the hat size or if it is an overseas maker, the size will be in centimeters (cm.) If you have an old hat that is time to replace, and the size tag is gone, most good hats will have the hat makers details under the sweatband, including the size. Just turn it down and have a look.

As you can see from the size chart below there is only 3/8th of an inch difference between most hat sizes, so it is always best practices to know your hat size, just like you know your shoe size.
