I have a couple of your hats and wanted to tell you what I did to one of them.
When I was in Colorado I bought an inexpensive leather hat, which gets me all kinds of NICE comments when I wear it.I Think it’s due to the style and the antler button, sweat band I made. I love that hat but it’s too warm for the summer so I bought a “Breeze” from you, shaped it a little like your “Storm” by rolling up the brim in front and ran some thread through the forward section of mesh to bring in the sides a little
Now, I have my cowboy style hat and the mesh that makes it wearable in the heat of the summer.
It’s not quit what I wanted but it’s wearable. Have you ever considered offering a unit like that?
Thanks for your suggestion. I love your innovation. You looking for a job in hat design? I have not tried the thread through the crown, but it gives me some ideas. I do make a shapeable Breeze hat. It has a heavy plastic wire in the brim that can be rolled and shaped to hold a style (hattitude) that you like, but is not damaged by crushing like the metal shaping wire I use in other hats. This hat is called the Twister and has a big brother called the Rowdy.
Thanks for the input and happy trails
