Kenny Chesney Cowboy Hat
Chesney’s signature western look is a high-quality black cowboy hat with a simple black hat band. The preferred Kenny Chesney cowboy hat brand ranges across many hat manufacturers. With a short crown and narrow arena crease, the hat shape flatters Chesney's face shape. The brim is slightly less than 4 inches and features a slight come-and-go shape, similar to the brims Garth Brooks wears.

The profile view of Chesney’s 50X black felt hat during a performance reveals the appropriateness of a shorter brim with gentle shaping. Although most cowboy hats feature a 4-inch brim, Chesney’s 3 ¾-inch choice fits his compact stature. Instead of seeing his hat, you see him.

Although Chesney tends to wear a felt, he does opt for a Bangora straw hat when the performance happens in hot weather. A straw hat provides more ventilation and is a more comfortable hat option. The hat here has had extra shaping after production to give it a deep Show crease. This extra shaping allows for the crown height to be reduced. The Kenny Chesney straw cowboy hat brim features a retro shape.
