Gray Western Hat Cowboy Hatband, Braided not Beaded Hat band



I designed this hatband in 1992, so I have been braiding them for about 23 years now. This is a very sturdy and substantial hatband. I make them by braiding a 6 strand mystery braid of 2mm flat Cotton cording (which looks like leather) when completed. I braid them in 5 colors. Choices are Tan, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, Black or Cavalry Gray. This one is Cavalry Gray.

The most recent purchase of this Gray hatband was a custom order for my repeat customer, Lou Marano of The Plains, VA, for his size 7 3/4 Hat.

These hatbands are 7/16" wide (Just under 1/2 inch). The average is 23" in length, however I make them shorter or longer for more of a custom fit. For smaller sizes like 6 3/4, I'd have to make one shorter. Larger sizes 7 1/2 - 7 7/8's I need to braid it longer. When you purchase one, please measure around the base of the crown of your hat, or tell me what size hat, and I'll do the rest.

Just place it around the crown of your hat and tie it on with a square knot. After the knot, trim the ends of the cording to whatever length you want. It will not fray or unravel. Or you can tie a knot at the ends and snip off the excess, like shown in photo.

It is a great functional hatband at the right price. If any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

My business partner/husband then, is and was a custom hat maker (now semi-retiring).
I came up with this fundamental and affordable hat band to finish off our fur-felt hats.

We wanted a hat band that would compliment our custom hats and this was the ticket. It gave the hats class, until the customer wanted to invest in a more expensive hat band to suit their taste or one of my custom beaded hat bands.

Most the time, we'd see out customers a couple months down the road, and they would still have my braided hat band on their hat. They'd comment on the compliments they had received, and that the band adds the perfect touch, and they weren't in a hurry to change it.
