Atwood Nevada Vaquero Hat 5" Brim
The Atwood Nevada is undoubtedly our most popular Vaquero style hat. This flat crown, 5" flat brim hat is our largest brimmed flat crown hat made of palm leaf. With a soft feel and flat finish, this beautiful Atwood Nevada Vaquero style hat is a handsome look new or with the years of added character from work or play. The 5" brim offers the most sun protection with the added great fit and is perfect for long days in the sun. To help with airflow, you can request eyelets be added. Three on each side can be added for an additional $6. Just indicate this in the notes on your order.
While this hat style has a rich history, it has gained recent popularity from interest in California Vaquero Horsemanship and through the 2011 release of the Sundance Audience Award winning documentary Buck, based on the life of professional horseman Buck Brannaman. Directed by Cindy Meehl, this is a documentary about Buck’s life and his ability to understand and connect people to their horses. Both Buck and Cindy Meehl are shown wearing their unique versions of the flat brim Vaquero Style hat. Each of their hats have been shaped to achieve their unique look and style. See below for directions on shaping our Palm Leaf version of the Vaquero style. Check you hat size here Hat Size Chart

Shaping the Palm Leaf Hat:
Both water or steam may be used to alter the shape of a palm leaf hat. Steam changes the texture of the palm leaf very little compared to soaking it in water. Using the steam of a tea kettle works well to minimally alter the shape. Shape as you steam. Once the desired brim shape is achieved, you need to stablize the shape to allow it to set. Once shaped, expect a sticky feel to the hat until the hat is dry. Achieving the desired shape is up to the skill of the hat shaper. Water may be used to make dramatic changes to the crown or brim of the palm leaf hats. However, soaking the palm leaf hats will alter the smooth, sharp finish. Questions?

Please note...Once re-shaped, the hat may not be returned.

Nice, light, good quality product. I was surprised at first by how large the brim was - the hat seems larger than in the picture. The wide brim is nice in the sun. The hat is shipped very flat and may be shaped a little to give it character. At the event I was at, many people asked me about my hat.
A Cowgirls Promise went out of their way to get me the hat shipped in time. Great service!

What's to write? I'd be lost without.
A couple of days before the hat I watch/listened to Stevie Ray Vonn (I don't know how to spell it} It doesn't matter. Anyway when he came on stage he always wore a duster; he's from Texas, he was probably playing in Texas and an Atwood Nevada Vaquero Hat 5" Brim. The Atwood hat shouldn't be called s Vaquero hat because it's a Stevie Ray Vonn hat. He doesn't just wear it. Stevie makes a statement when he wears it. I love my Stevie Ray Vonn hat. I love it.
