- Hats That Hold Their Shape - All American Hat Makers hats are guaranteed to hold their shape, and will not stretch or shrink with everyday wear. This mens leather cowboy hat can be restored even if it gets warped. Purchasing our lifetime refurbishment at checkout will guarantee that if your hat is accidentally damaged you can send it back to us for a painless and timely repair.
- They Fit! - Our hats fit! It sounds simple enough but with so many shapes and sizes of heads out there it can be a challenge. To overcome this obstacle we’ve designed several fit adjustment systems, all of which remain hidden behind the sweatband to keep your hat looking sharp from all angles. Check out more here.

- TPTim P.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars2 months agoFirst time buyer! But not the last time!
When looking for a top hat I came across the American hat makers website. Especially drawn by the American made product I took a leap of faith and bought the Pale rider. Quick shipping and fantastic packaging were impressive before I even saw the hat. I most say they did not disappoint and the hat is fantastic. A little adjustment withe the included sizing pads and I found a perfect fit. I already have my eyes on a second to add to my wardrobe. Thank you American Hat Makers! *** bless America!AHAmerican Hat Makers2 months ago

True that, Chuck! The Pale Ride is a must have and we're happy to hear that it has met your expectations.
- JAJeffrey A. G.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars10 months agoToo Much Awesomeness!!!
Straight out of the box, this hat shows it's top quality in craftsmanship. Choosing the Unbanded allows me to make this hat my very own. I have a small business that has a unique image and this hat makes it possible to bring that image into reality. Over time this hat will accumulate "things" with special significance to be worn on it. Thank you American Hat Makers for making my image come to life.AHAmerican Hat Makers10 months ago
thanks, Jeffrey! Nice photo you have there!
- ADAshley D.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars11 months agoAbsolutely amazing!
This hat was exactly what I wanted! I added my own homemade hatbands to it for a personal flair and I get SO MANY COMPLIMENTS on it all the time! As always, AHM's craftsmanship is second to none, the leather is gorgeous, and the fit is phenomenal with those sizers and sweatbands! Another perfect score for AHM!AHAmerican Hat Makers11 months ago
That's so cool, Ashley! It looks perfect with that look!
- JCJeff C.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars11 months agoGreat hat!!
I just recently was turned on to the movie, Pale Rider, and being a hat guy, I wanted a hat just like the one Clint Eastwood wears in the movie. This one is perfect!! I did have to flatten the brim a little by using some heavy books, but when I did that, it was perfect!!!
- KLKami L.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoMy Favorite Hat!!
Having a large head and LOTS of hair makes finding a hat big enough to stay on my head nearly impossible, until I found AHM! Now I can have any style hat I'm looking for and THIS is my favorite! I'm a musician and wear this hat everywhere. Very well made, looks great with any hat band or bandana I put on it, can dress it up or down. My head & hair measure almost 25" and a 2xl fits perfectly.
- PGPhlash G.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoFavorite hat, so far.
Fits perfect with the appropriate inner sizing bands. It's also not too uncomfortable to wear on 100° Texas days. I have yet to wear it standing outside in the heat, but I expect it's still not as much a head oven as my 20X black Resistol. Oh, and the young ladies seem to dig it, and that, alone, makes it worth wearing. I am dang pleased with this lid, and this AMERICAN company.
- RBRyan B.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoPale Rider Rocks!!!
I have been trying to find a quality Pale Rider style hat for several years now. I saw this and I admit I was skeptical about the quality especially for the price. Once it arrived all doubts were gone and this hat appears to be extremely well made and just looks amazing.
- PEPeter E.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars1 year agoThis hat is a genuine
This hat is a genuine conversation starter. I wore it on stage and so many people wanted it. Going to be adding it to my repertoire. It comfortable and fashionable.
