    Does anyone know where to get a really good quality leather sweatband? Something soft in a nude colour like the ones Nick Fouquet uses in his hats

    I am a big fan of FineVintageFedoras on Etsy or 'Bond' here in the lounge. They are soft, a full 2" width and you can get them vented as well. Comes in a nice selection of colours and for a few dollars more he will size it and sew it for you. Great product, quick turnaround...not the cheapest out there but my favourite leather sweat.

    I get all my sweats from Sullivan Hat Company. Soft sheep skin leather. Prices are very affordable for a nice quality sweat.

    Does he have minimum quantities? Will he sell one or two at a time?

    The last I recall, he didn't have a minimum quantity. He bought the sweat band business and the machinery to make them from JW Hats after JW passed away. His sweats are really nice and comfortable. I've had zero issues with them, and his prices are very affordable. In fact Mark Havens was selling his sweat bands before he suddenly passed away last year. It's definitely worth giving him a call. Here's his number, 575-644-9243. His name is Brian.

    Yes, I have ordered twice now from Tim. I really like his sweats...especially the Oxblood colour.
