    • Built to last. - While the other guys cut corners on quality to increase their margins, we don't believe in that. Even if you sweat a lot, it won't hurt the hat. This is thanks to an integrated sweat band that comes with every hat. Rain isn't a problem either. All our hats are also extremely resistant to water; rain will simply run off. Our strictest quality standards is garanteed to last a lifetime.

    • Hat will hold its shape. - The El Dorado Mens Leather Top Hat is guaranteed to hold its shape, and will not stretch/shrink with everyday wear.

    Comfortable and funky

    I’m a 3X. I’ve got a “super dome”. This hat was comfortable from the start. Beautiful leather. Adds an “edgy” vibe to EVERYTHING it’s paired with. Arrived very quickly. I wear it all year round. Absolutely love the idea that such a funky hat is available in my size. I’m a AHM fan for Life!!!
