For those of you new to hats, here’s a brief intro to terms and styles. For the sake of simplicity and easy reading, a lot of the finer points have been omitted, but this will at least get you started.
General Hat Styles
Common hat creases
Types of Brim Edges
Types of sweatbands
Am not quite appreciating the difference here though I’m sure I’ll think how obvious once enlightened! Thanks, JFM
You can see a bit of extra fabric between the band and the brim, that is the reed for a reeded hat. It absorbs sweat and wicks it away from the head.
Pardon me, comment above is referring to the reeded vs unreeded.
Thanks for the info! Bought a Royal Stetson Whippet this weekend and this is helping me get started in identifying it.
Does anybody know where I could order the raw felt from which a hat is made? I have a hat maker here where I live in Eastern Europe but she is not savvy about where to get the materials.
