Old West Hats
Many ranch hands, presidents, political figures, and business executives wear cowboy hats. But one thing is certain: once you put a cowboy hat on your head, the unique experience makes you feel you are going to be part of an adventure, or experience. For a moment, you become part of another time, era, when the West wasn’t just a place, but a state of mind.
That is what many old west cowboy enthusiasts experience by being part of organizations such as the SASS (Single Action Shooting Society). SASS members take pride in preserving the history of the old west by being part of action shooting events. The members will not just have fun with the family, but they will also learn the traditions and history of the Old west.
The requirement of being an SASS member is to adopt a shooting alias appropriate to your specific character or profession of the 19th century. They then developed their costume accordingly. One of the most important pieces of the costume is a Cowboy Hat. Trying to find a good quality authentic old west hat that resembles the old west era is always a challenge.
At Miller hats we have designed many old west styles in top quality genuine fur felt materials. Some of the popular styles include the open crowns. The open crown is authentic of the old west area primarily because it allows for the cowboy to crease their own hat just like in the old west. The traditional styles from the old west would add dents to the side or the front. It is the nature of the crease in the crown and the shape of the brim that creates a unique accent for the person wearing a particular cowboy hat. As the old west cowboy would say “It’s the last thing you take off and the first thing that is noticed”.
Our styles are unique to the era and designed by Miller Hats in the USA. Check out our collections today! 100’s of hats in stock ready to ship.
