Custom Hats

To have a custom made hat, which fits you perfectly, and reflects your individual style, is truly a special thing. Your Glacier Rim Hat will last for many years and will become a coveted heirloom piece.

For custom hat fittings, it is crucial we meet in person to get an accurate head measurement and shape. This will require two hat fittings at our meeting space in downtown Whitefish, MT. During the initial hat fitting we will record your head measurement, you'll choose your desired fur felt hat body and color, crown and brim shape, style and hat band options.

First hat fittings will take 45min - 1 hour. The second hat fitting will be after your hat is blocked, sanded, sweat banded and shaped. This will be a shorter meeting where you will try on your hat to make sure everything fits and feels right before the trimmings. 

Currently, we are 4-6 months out on production time. We accept a certain amount of custom orders per month.  We are a small Mom & Pop business and make the hats out of our home studio. We have two retail boutiques, The Village Shop in Whitefish, MT, The Rhinestone Cowgirl in Big Sky, MT, and a wholesale account we need to keep stocked. We also have kids whom we like to hang out with before they don't want to hang out with us. We will do the best we can to create your hat before schedule without rushing quality.

How to measure your head:

Use a tape measure (or a length of string to hold up to a tape measure or ruler) to determine the circumference of your head. Place the string or tape around your head about 1/8″ above your ear, across the mid-forehead and completely encircle your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tight. Measure your head exactly where the hat will sit. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next size up.
