  • Why Our Hats Are Better
    • Lifetime warranty on all hats. - When you buy a leather top hat from us, we got you covered for life. Did the hat stretch/shrink? We'll make it right. We stand behind all our products and have easy to reach customer service.

    • Easy to reach customer service. - We don't hide behind a website. We love our customers and we're happy to resolve any concerns you may have. Simply give us a call at 1-800-642-3428 and we'll be happy to help you with anything you need.

    • 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. All our hats are also extremely resistant to water. Our leather top hats are held to the strictest quality standards and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

    • Handmade in the USA. - Handmade with love right here in the good ol' USA. We're proud to provide employment to over 35 hard working, blue collar Americans. And because each hat is handmade, they're truly one of a kind, and thoroughly inspected for quality.

    • Hat will hold its shape. - They are guaranteed to hold their shape, and will not stretch/shrink with everyday wear. Please do not mistreat our hats, however, by leaving them locked in a car on a 90° summer day. But, even in that worst case scenario, the hat shape can be restored by resting it on a coffee can.

    Too 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.

    Absolutely 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!

    Great 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!!!

    My 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.

    LOVE IT!!
