Editorial & Disclosure Policy

At American Hat Makers, our goal is to help readers find their next hat or lifestyle piece.

Part of how we do that is recommending hats, online stores, and more. Below, you can find more information on our editorial process, including how we pick hats to review, and how we may be compensated through our content.

Editorial Process

Our main goal as a Ecommerce platform is to find the best solutions for our readers. That may be through education, how to instructions, or it may be recommending some of the best hats or apparel related to those activities. AHM is committed to useful, accurate and practical information above all else.

Solving our readers’ problems and challenges is our top priority, and we firmly believe that if we do that the right way, everything else will fall into place. We do our best to keep our stories updated with links to brands and online resources that provide additional info. We write content in house, using long term hat industry veterans.

Our writers personally research and explore their topics. For hat reviews, our writers have years of experience with the types of products being reviewed, and in many cases we test the products being recommended. We pride ourselves on our research and commitment to putting out the best possible articles for our readers, and welcome suggestions on how to do that better.

Each article we publish has hours of research, writing, fact-checking and editing behind it, and each article is reviewed by our senior editors.

Affiliate Links & Recommendations

In many of our articles, especially hat reviews, we may earn a small commission when readers purchase products through our links. This doesn’t affect which products are included in the articles when we write.

All of the products we highlight are recommended for their quality, performance and overall reputation regardless of any affiliate relationships. The hats and products we recommend come from the highest quality brands in the industry.

They are some of the best products out there and so we recommend them. We strive to recommend the products that would fit best for most audiences. The commissions we make from these articles allow us to pay our writers the best rates possible, and to allow us to put as much time and energy into the research and vetting side of the review process. We don’t want to cut corners, and we want to pay writers and hat/product reviewers what they’re worth.

If we receive a hats to review directly from brands, it’s noted in the review itself, though most of the hats we test are purchased. Any brands or products that pay for promotion or advertising on the site is considered “Sponsored.”

Amazon Associates & Other Programs

As an Amazon Associate, American Hat Makers may earn commissions from qualifying purchases from Amazon.com. We also partner with other hat retailers when noted.

Our reputation as a place to find quality products and education is important to us, and that helps us navigate what we recommend to our readers.
