The men’s leather hats from American Hat Makers are a long-term investment for your wardrobe. We use the very finest cuts of top-grain leather, which offer every ounce of rugged charm while staying butter-soft to the touch. Leather is also significantly stronger than most other hat materials, and is built to support you through all life’s adventures.
Using industrial hydraulic presses, we cut out the brim and crown of our men’s leather hats with exacting precision. Then we artfully fold the crown into a circle and hand stitch it closed on the inside, so that the stitching is protected and invisible when the hat is worn. To make the top of our leather hats, we punch a hole out of the middle of the brim leather to create a perfect match. Once the crown and top are sturdily sewn in place, we flip the hat right-side-out and add the brim. Form finished, it’s time to move to the distinctive details.

How To Care For Your Western Leather Hat
Leather hats for men are incredibly durable and easy to clean. And many people prefer the look of aged leather hats to new ones, making men’s leather hats from American Hat Makers wearable heirlooms. Whether you want to embrace the natural aging process, or keep your leather hat looking brand new, here are the best ways to keep your hat healthy.
A liquid or spray-on leather protector will make your leather hat impervious to harsh weather conditions. It will help repel water and prevent stains from settling in. For best results, this protector should be reapplied at least yearly. If your leather hat for men does become stained, you can clean it using warm water, a washcloth, and some mild dish soap. Simply blot at the stain until it lifts out of your leather hat. Avoid saddle soap or harsh cleaners, as these can be damaging.
If your hat becomes wet from cleaning or being caught in a rainstorm, let it dry out thoroughly. Wipe your hat down gently, turn down the sweat band, and allow it to dry naturally away from sunlight or high heat to prevent shrinkage. Once dry, it’s important to apply a leather conditioner to keep your hat soft and supple. By conditioning your men’s leather hat on a regular basis, you will protect it from dryness and fading - ensuring it’s as flexible, dashing, and daring as the day you bought it.

What is a leather hat called?
A leather hat is commonly called a "leather hat" or a "leather cap." It is a type of hat that is made from leather, a durable and breathable material that is often used in the manufacture of hats and other clothing items. Leather hats come in a variety of styles, from simple baseball caps to more elaborate cowboy hats. They can be worn for both practical and fashionable reasons, and are a popular choice among people who want a durable and stylish hat.
Do leather hats breathe?
Leather hats can breathe to some extent, but not as much as hats made from more breathable materials like straw or cotton. The pores in leather are smaller than in other materials, so they allow less air to pass through. However, the leather can still allow some air to pass through, which can help to keep the head cool and comfortable.
How can you tell if a hat is real leather?
There are a few ways to tell if a hat is made of real leather:
Look at the label: If the hat has a label, it should specify the material it is made of. If it says "real leather" or "100% leather," then the hat is likely made of real leather.
Check the texture and color: Real leather has a unique texture and color that is difficult to replicate. If the hat has a smooth, matte finish and a rich, deep color, it is probably made of real leather.
Look for imperfections: Real leather is a natural material, so it may have imperfections such as scars, wrinkles, or variations in color. These imperfections are a sign that the hat is made of real leather.
Smell the hat: Leather has a distinct, slightly musky smell. If the hat has this smell, it is likely made of real leather.
If you are unsure whether a hat is made of real leather, you can always ask the manufacturer or seller for more information.
How long will a leather hat last?
Leather hats can last for many years if they are properly cared for. The specific lifespan of a leather hat will depend on factors such as the quality of the leather and how often the hat is worn and exposed to the elements. In general, a high-quality leather hat that is regularly treated with a leather conditioner and stored in a cool, dry place can last for several years. On the other hand, a low-quality leather hat that is frequently worn and not properly cared for may only last for a few months. It's important to follow the care instructions provided by the manufacturer to help extend the life of your leather hat.
Can you wear a leather hat in rain?
Leather hats can be worn in the rain, but they may become damaged if they get too wet. It's best to avoid getting a leather hat too wet and to allow it to dry naturally if it does get wet. The leather may become stiff and misshapen if it is allowed to dry too quickly, for example, with the use of a hair dryer or other heat source. It's also a good idea to treat the leather with a waterproofing agent before wearing it in the rain to help protect it.
