    Don’t be fooled by cheap knock-offs!

    I found this hat after seeing an ad for it on social media. I couldn’t remember the name of the seller, and a quick online search revealed that I’d seen a knock-off seller (who’d even pirated some of American Hatmaker’s ad photos.). The real AH website was clearly the real thing, and I’ve rarely been so happy with every aspect of an online purchase, from website to shipping to quality and fit. And while what I paid I paid wasn’t as absurdly low as the pirate seller was promising, it’s still an excellent price for this hat.

    Sssssssss...

    Another beautifully crafted hat from American Hat Makers. I have 7? Lost count. This hat is in a class by itself, meticulously done, unique and edgy with attitude. Absolutely love it.

    Aside from the hats, the best part of dealing with American Hat Makers is the people. Communicating with anyone there is like talking to a friend. Made in America by a small company, unbelievable customer service and guarantee. I always have felt that I get much more than I paid for.
