About Our Movie Hats

We make custom hats so the crown and brim measurements are pretty much redundant.

The hats you see online are our standard hats, if you want a specific crown and brim height we will confirm that after your order is received. For a cowboy hat, we can make up to a six (6") inch crown and a five (5") brim. Any hat with a brim width of more than 4 inches we must start with an oversized hat body, which adds a little to the cost.

Most of our cowboy hats have a crown height between 5 and 6 inches and a brim width of 3 1/2 to 4 inches. Hat styles shown with a wider brim include The Wasey, Quigley, Everett Hitch, Blondie, Little J, The Dunson, Last of the Dogmen, Wild Bill, all our B-Movie hats, and many of our Custom Rodeo Hats

Beaver Fur Felt for Custom Handmade Hats

Our Beaver Hats are made from high-quality felted beaver fur.

Beaver fur felt is a long-lasting, dense and nearly waterproof material made from a blend of beaver and/or rabbit/hare fur with felt. It is known for its exceptional durability, lasting 5-10 times longer than wool-felt. A high-quality hat made from Beaver and Beaver blend fur-felt can be easily reshaped multiple times using just a steam iron and some patience. This material is highly regarded for its ability to create top-notch hats.

Our Beaver Fur Felt

Ideally, a higher concentration of beaver fur should be indicated by a higher X factor. However, the hat-making industry lacks a standardized system, leading to confusion. Many hat sellers do not disclose the composition of their fur-felt, and some even misleadingly market straw hats as 100X. As a general rule, if a hat maker simply refers to their hat bodies as fur-felt, it is likely made from rabbit or hare fur.

We offer three quality beaver blends for our custom hats:

  • 5X blend consists of approximately 5% beaver combined with rabbit and felt.
  • 20X blend contains 50% beaver combined with rabbit and felt.
  • 100X is made from pure 100% beaver fur-felt.

For a hat that can withstand any weather conditions, a pure beaver cowboy hat is unbeatable. It is lightweight, rigid, and visually stunning, capable of repelling anything that comes its way. And remember, if you desire a water-resistant material, consider that beavers inhabit water while rabbits reside in the dirt.
