    JAXONBILT Hats ??????

    Does anyone have a hat from JAXONBILT Hats or has had dealings with them?
    I was thinking about ordering, but want to check it out with TFL first. Thanks

    Jaxon, yes -- never heard them called Jaxonbilt. Jaxon is a lower-cost line of hats sold through Village Hat Shop in California. Decent entry-level hat; I have one of their crushable c-crown fedoras.

    Are these the guys you're talking about? I have never heard of them before, and I can't find any information on the makeup of the felt.

    Hi

    I asked a similar question a month or so ago. I expect the guy who answered it offline to respond. Basically he has at least a couple of 100% beaver hats from them and loves them both. Said that they still looked good after 5 years. I plan on buying a 50% beaver one for wearing outdoors.

    The link to the website is http://www.jaxonbilthats.com/, I don't think that it is the same as Village Hat Shop.

    I have three Jaxonbilt hats, one that is 50X, and two that are 100x. I wore the 50x during a two week survival course in the Utah desert with high heat during the day, really cold temperatures at night, rain, etc, in short everything that the elements could throw at it and it still looks almost brand new. Buy a Jaxonbilt and don't look back. They make a fine product and the owner Roy, is a pleasure to do business with.

    Just make sure you get your order in soon if you have a specific event you need it for, because as with most custom products they are not fast. He'll also send you his "conformer kit" which not also measures the size of your head, but the shape as well which is crucial. We all have little bumps on whatnot that make a custom fit the only real way to go. Once you go custom you never go back.
    Slow down, you'll get a more harmonious outcome.

    I've seen these guys before. Their catalog looks pretty good, though I'm not into most of those styles. The two Elko models, though, look cool (especially the black one with gold trim).

    Thanks, I am going conservative with this order and will probably be ordering the Cattleman #9. Going west.
