    Does anyone have a preferred source for hat boxes? The type used for decoration rarely fit my big headed hats. Is there a company that offers usable aftermarket hat boxes or am I stuck looking for vintage boxes? I do have a triple decker Dobbs box, but I rarely see men's hat boxes that are for sale alone.

    I go to my local hat shop and buy the square cardboard Stetson boxes that they give away with new hats. They charge me around $5.00 per box. I'm sure you could get the same from any western clothing store.

    If you want a fancy box check with Penman Hats
    for generic hat boxes Panama Bob sometimes sells boxes
    There are other vendors out there but these are the 2 I know of off the top of my head

    The modern Stetson hat boxes fit the bill, Hat Guys in Oakland sold one to me for $8, I think.

    If you're looking for something a bit more stylish and/or vintage styled, Penman does nice hat boxes. His supplier is Sarah's Hat Boxes, located on the web at: http://www.sarahshatboxes.com/

    If you order direct from them, I believe you have to ask for the hat insert.
