    I was just now looking at your hats, very nice. I hope everyone will take a peek at your work as well.

    Thank you kindly Cindy! Compliments and comments are always appreciated, that's how we grow and learn. Still building up the portfolio of hats, it's what makes hatmaking exciting!

    Good stuff! I checked out their web site and it looks like they just make Westerns. Do they also make any Fedora styles? He does not list pricing what are his prices for a Western weight full beaver? What is his lead time?

    I hope this isn't entirely off-topic but this thread IS devoted to custom hats, so here goes. Several years ago, there was a hat style known as the "Buckarette," with a wide brim and a high crown, offered by Jackson Hole Hat Company. At the time, the brim width was listed as 6-1/2 inches, IIRC. Unfortunately, they have since discontinued that style, because the extra-large hat bodies or hat blanks need for a hat of this magnitude are no longer being made. I've attached a picture of the hat in question as a reference. My question is, Does anyone know of a hat blank or hat body maker that can custom-make a hat body suitable for a hat like this, either in this country, in Mexico, or elsewhere? I have a long-time dream of having a hat like this with--please don't laugh!--a 7-inch brim AND a 7-inch crown! All other details would be the same as in the picture EXCEPT that I would like the hatband to be loaded with turquoise-studded conchos. So far, my efforts have proven fruitless! Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions! Buckarette.jpg

    I found their website, and it looks like they might have one or two hat bodies that might meet my requirements. The problem is that they're a wholesale firm, as far as I can determine. How would I proceed if I wanted to order a hat body or two and have them made into finished hats?

  12. Since you’re not making the hat yourself (are you?), you can have your hatter get the hat body.

    I’m believe they sell to the public as well. You might send @Joao Encarnado a PM and ask him, he’s into big westerns and he’s ordered from FEPSA. You can also ask @humanshoes if he can help: he’s the hatter behind The Phoenix Hat Company and he’s ordered from FEPSA in the past.

    How do I go about sending a PM on this forum? I'm still new here, so I'm not familiar with all of the ins and outs, so to speak!
