View Full Version : Straw hats now available from Carter & Jasper

01-07-2007, 06:35 PM
Carter & Jasper now offers men's straw hats in the following styles. These hats are made of the finest wheat straw and are sewn together with straw colored cotton thread. Unlike most other reproductions available, they are not held together with monofilament line. These hats are all specially made and are not generic Amish or other types of straw hats that have been converted. The hats are finished with a pigskin sweatband and a silk grossgrain crown ribbon in either brown, tan, blue, or black. Finishing work on the hats was done by Mr. Tim Bender. The straw will darken with age and wear. The hats can also be easilly shellaced and shaped into brim shapes, etc. Please see below for pictures of available styles and sizes. Custom work is available, and currently in the works is a "bell crown" style straw hat. If you don't see your size or wants, let me know and it can be done. The hats will also be added to my new website, www.carterandjasper.com.

They'll be up as soon as I can figure out my new tutorial to post them! I have been trying, but long, long, work days have not helped the matter. If you'll email me at carterandjasper@yahoo.com, I'll be glad to send you the pics via email.

Moderator hat: Careful.

Reenactor hat: Give the guy a break. Look at the time of the post. He probably hasn't time to drink all his morning coffee.
