Our Hats Have Been Seen On

  • Top Grade Materials - Manufactured to the highest standard, our materials are put through rigorous testing to ensure their quality and then expertly crafted into one of our timeless designs. Our leather is supple, our felt is durable, and our straw tightly woven. 
  • 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.

Every one of our hats come with a 50 year guarantee. That means that if your hat fails in any way to meet your standards due to our craftsmanship then we’ll repair or replace your hat free of charge. So if your hat starts unraveling in 50 years, we’ll take it back and make it right.

How to Measure Your Head

  1. Grab a soft measuring tape or a piece of string (like twine or a shoelace) and a ruler or measuring tool
  2. Wrap a soft tape or string around your head to measure about 1/4 to 1/2 inch above your ear and about 3/4 to an 1" inch above your brow line (see image)
    • Mark the tape or your string, where it intersects, with your finger.
  3. Record your measurement in inches or centimeters (centimeters is often more accurate)
    • If you're using a string, run it along side the ruler as many times as necessary to get a complete measurement
  4. MEASURE AGAIN!
    • Always measure more than once until you get the same number twice
  5. Find your size in the chart for the perfect fit

    From Mike Thomas

    I've bought a ton of leather hats from American Hat Makers. All my leather hat purchases have been size medium, and are more than generous in circumference. Hence, I purchased the leather Sidewinder Hat in size medium and wouldn't you know it, the Sidewinder Hat size M is too small. Expensive hat and not sure what I'm going to do predicated on the imposition and time. Let you know in a couple days.
