4 Tips for Buying Your Straw Cowboy Hat


Want to incorporate a trendy yet traditional American accessory into your wardrobe? Consider getting a straw cowboy hat.

Cowboy hats have become so popular since the days of the western-themed movie “the good, the bad and the ugly.”  And despite the ever-changing fashion climate, these hats are not leaving the trend anytime soon, especially the traditional straw cowboy hats.

There are two kinds of Straw cowboy hats, the felt hats, and straw hats

Felt hats were made to protect the wearer’s head from the cooling weather. When the weather is hot, the hat’s broad brim protects the head from the heat. And when it is cold, because of its thick felt, it can provide warmth.

Felt hats are usually recognized by their more prominent crown-crease, which is as a result of the wool or fur-like material used in creating them.

Straw hats, on the other hand, are made of straw-like materials, which makes them generally lightweight. Straw hats were seen as a symbol of the Wild Western era, but today, it has become a popular trend. Amazingly, despite the more modern patterns and intricate designs that it is now made of, the straw cowboy hat remains the lightest and most comfortable accessory anyone can have.

Straw hats are so famous and have sizes for adults and kids, depending on the purpose. You can find palm-leaf cowboy hats, work Bangora cowboy hats, X-designated cowboy hats, and so many others. Their prices are relatively competitive, depending on your style, purpose, and budget.

Now let’s see the 4 tips for choosing a straw cowboy hat.

There are certain things you must know when going to buy a cowboy hat. These tips will ensure that you enjoy it for as long as possible.

  1. Size: nothing is more awkward than wearing a straw cowboy hat with the wrong fit. Too small, and you would have your head looking all squeezed in and very uncomfortable. Too big, and you would have your hat ready to blow right off your head with every slight breeze you encounter. To get the right size for your head, measure the space directly above your eyebrows, then around your head just above your ears. Those inches can be converted into the right hat size by a real cowboy hat’s store.

  1. Consider the season. One way to easily blend with the true cowboys is by wearing the right hat in the right season. Felt hats are best worn during winter or cold seasons because they keep the head warm. Wearing a felt hat during summer could leave you sweltering in the heat. A Straw cowboy hat is best used in the summer because, not only is it lightweight, the weaves and straw-like material allows air seep in, unlike the felt hat. Conclusively, wear straw hats during the hot days and felt when it’s cooling off.

  1. Face shape. One of the vital things you should note is that cowboy hats are meant to show off the shape of your face. Hence, you would need to get a hat that would balance off your features. Hats with a medium crown height best suits a face shape that is thin and elongated. In contrast, hats with shorter crowns are better for a fuller, rounded face.

  1. Hat material. A straw cowboy hat is the best for regular use, as they are lightweight, durable, and easier to maintain. Materials like felt, wool, or leather may seem more formal and elegant but would need constant cleaning, as they are more prone to catching dust and debris quickly.

Knowing these tips will help you make more informed choices when purchasing your favorite straw cowboy hat.
