View Full Version : Western hats - colors
01-21-2008, 04:29 PM
Okay, I know someone out here will have the answer. Without going the custom dye route, I know that I've seen a page out on the Internet that had all sorts of different colors for Western hats. This was when I was on a search for an all-white hat. Of course, I did NOT mark it as a favorite.
I'm pretty sure it came from one of the regular saddle seat suppliers, but a quick search there turns up nothing.
So - for a hat of a different color, but NOT custom-dyed ... where do you go (no straw allowed, no fake felt, etc.)

I guess it depends on what color and quality you are looking for. If it is anything other than a neutral color (white, tans, greys, black, brown) you are going to be hard pressed to get a quality western hat. I'm talking 10x quality and up. I'd start with Bailey or Resistols websites and email them. When I worked for Rods I remember hearing that there are only a few factories that make fur felt hats and that all hat brands use them to make their hats.

smithbothers may have a few felt color choices as well.

Nope, I'm not looking for a $250 hat. More like the $50 range to do local parades in.
Honestly - I know I saw one page that had green, red, purple, blue, pink, fuchsia, etc. all on the same page.
I've already looked at Rod's and Sergeant's, thanks!

I don't know if these are what you're looking for, but there are several colors here...
Ladies Hats/ Soft Felt-Crushables

Nope, soft/crushable isn't it. I'll know it as soon as I see it - and I could kick myself for not bookmarking it (oh, I'll remember it - yeah, right)

Dang, I was sure Amanda would know. Really - the first part of the URL was a regular SS supplier.:eek:

I'm sure this isn't the site,
but WOW! That's some hat!
Have you considered a light hat with green accessorizing....much easier to find.
Earth tones are in and even the green hats you find now are forest and khaki-camo.

The green is this time - I also need purple, burgundy and blue at some point.

This? :eek: :D

I think it was me when I was Dream In Colour. I sold colored western hats. I'll see if I can still get them - they came in a whole rainbow of colors.

LOL, sorry Attafox, I've only ever had a black hat, so have no idea who'd sell a colored one :p

The website I'm thinking of, I actually found in December ... but if you can locate a source, yee-haw!

I have done specific searches before on ebay for the color hat I might want and came up with some interesting results. I did a search just now for "Purple Western Hat" and several possibilities came up and also a bunch of stuff in ebay stores that I didn't go thru completely. Here's one in an ebay store - it's pretty glitzy:

Might want to try this site:
if you google shoe buy, there are coupon offers, too.

Reed Hill makes many colours including purple, burgundy & bright white. I did not see an emerald green one though! They are wholesalers only so you will need to get a retailer to order for you. I see 16 different colours avail.

We have a winner! That's what I saw ... THANK YOU. I'm not hallucinating! (crazy maybe ...):p
01-25-2008, 04:36 PM
Yep, those are the hats I carry. I don't know if my pricing is cheaper than buying direct or not.

FYI, I found quite a few western hats at shoebuy.com. There's even an orange one (but not green). Just in case you are till looking. Right now until the 16th they have 20% off and shipping is free (even for returns). I want the turquoise one! Sandi
