As you know we were in Reno for the SCI show. This year like every year we were swarmed by eager customers, anxious to get yet another hat for their next adventure. This hat was sold last year at the SCI show in Las Vegas and proudly worn in the booth. Note the custom sterling badge on a hand platted kangaroo hat band. The color combo came out great. We used the saddle club treatment in black hand stitching to the brim at the base of the crown. Look close at the bound edge and you'll see an extra black stitch that adds that extra special something.
Remember our sporting clay shooters hat? this line of hats has a few things in common. Shorter brims, as not to obscure your line of sight while taking aim. Showerter more compact corwns are easier to wear in and around vehicles. Finally, a look that is just at home heading to town as it is one the hunt.
Our western line is always a favorite with this laced brim and hand made pheasant hatband. As always Rands Custom Hats look great while being a protective tool for a you day in and day out. We have limited production, call us today and let us create one for you!

Thank you Mr. Rand
Just dropping a simple note to offer my gratitude for the courteousness and assistance that Mr. Rand offered me while inquiring about the 45 Two Dot.
As a son of a small business owner here in Arizona, I can certainly identify with the sign of our times, and complexity of owning a small business. I am equally happy to know there are some people out there (like Mr. Rand) that allow us the luxury of hanging on to the “true” cowboy traditions and craftsmanship from our American past.
Again, thank you for taking the time to speak, and I will call again on Friday to order.

Rand's on quality grading.
Why is our 10X cost more than others.
Grading and X's. I will not speak for others. I can say that
Rand's 10X is 100 % PURE BEAVER fur felt, please forgive
me at the risk of being repetitious... Rand's 10X is
100 % PURE BEAVER
fur felt! Many other
companies call this a 100X.
Still others call it, simply
100% pure beaver. Where the
plot thickens is, hair from all
over the body is still pure
beaver. Your premium beaver
comes from the belly of the
beaver. Randy's calls its hats
made from this area 20X,
while others may call it 100,
200, 500x or more. Years ago the grading was more modest. At Rand's we continue in this tradition. Bare in mind. Grading is not regulated or standardized. Any hat company can put anything they want in a hat. For example: what is a 100X straw that's not felt and most times not even straw but rice paper.
Yes most straw hats for sale are not even straw. So buyer
beware. Judge the hat on its own merit. The hat should look
good, feel great and perform. That means hold its shape
and keep its color. Some manufactures place cosmetic
powders, much like woman's makeup to give the hat a rich
luster. This process leaches out
in the rain. Our hat bodies are
dyed with an ink dye which is
color fast. In addition, I believe we are the only hat company that waterproofs All of its hats with Bickmoore water proofing solution. This process adds a further layer of protection to an already water resistant beaver fur felt. Rand's is committed to producing the finest
quality and performing hats possible. So when some one
tells you they got a 100x hat custom made for you cheaper
than our 20x, remember ...
are made better and some
cost more. They're a lot of
great custom hats out there.
We would like YOU to try a
Rand's Custom Hats.... Where we put more than X's in the hat!
