The Patriot starts with a soft palm hat body that has been flame distressed so it looks like it has already been broken in. There is a wire in the brim that keeps sides in place. The distressed red leather hatband has antiqued nail spots then finished with a deer antler rosette and a navy blue guinea feather. The back of the band has a deer antler bead for accent. Stampede strings are attached to hat which will make it a great hat for riding or on those windy days
A How to Guide on measuring your Hat Size
Follow these super easy simple steps:
Step 1: Measure Your Head
You can either use a cloth tape measure or a long string and a retractable tape measure. Have someone hold the tape or string. It makes the process easier but you can do it on your own.
Place the tape or string around your head about 1/8” above the top of the ears and across the mid-forehead (usually about half an inch above the eyebrows) so that you completely circle your head.
Be sure to hold the tape or string firmly but not too tightly. This is not tourniquet tight. Leave some wiggle room as tight fitting hats can cause headaches.
Hold your forefinger against the tape measure or string where it comes around to meet the end. Check the measurement of the tape and write it down in inches.
If you’re using a string, place a mark on it, then lay it out flat alongside the measuring tape and write down the inches.
Follow the general rule – “measure twice, cut once.” Or in this instance, I make the hat once. If for some reason you measure incorrectly and you need to return it for a new size, charges will apply to re-make the hat including additional shipping costs.
Please use this sizing chart as a reference. Some items run smaller or bigger than what is shown. Some smalls fit more like an extra-small or they may fit more like a medium depending on how they run. We will try to put this information in the item description. If you are unsure about what size you need, feel free to message us! If you are in between sizes, we suggest going up a size. So if you are an 8/10, we suggest going with a large.
