I'm now offering some
Renaissance style Hats through my website. You can find items
I have available listed below. All of the hats being offered here
are new from stock I carry in my booth at fairs.
If you wish
to use PayPal to order your hats simply click the link next to the item you
want listed below. There are drop down boxes to choose size and color of hat as
well as a box when you go to check out
through the PayPal shopping cart for you to enter "special
instructions" and you can enter your feather choices there.
you wish to order one and would prefer to not go through PayPal simply email
me to pay via check or money order or you may even call
me toll free at 1-888-532-3304 and order with your credit card over the
phone. I don't have an answering
service or a phone
service but calling over the phone is probably the quickest method of
getting your order in or having any questions answered. I do have voice mail so
if I miss your call I will call you back within 24 hours.
Shipping is higher for hats than for snoods and
starts at $11.50 due to the size and weight difference of the box.
Non-US orders MUST
email me for shipping charges since the cart can only figure US shipping
charges. All customs charges are the responsibility of the buyer.
Renaissance Cavalier Hats & Felt Hat
Cavalier Hat available in
5 colors and 3 sizes, with cloak clasp pin and your
choice of feathers.
hats are offered in either a Felt Hat Blank or as a Cavalier Hat and is available in sizes M (7 1/8), L(7 3/8), & XL (7 5/8). To determine your correct size measure the circumference around where you would wear the hat. Basically, from level with the forehead around. M size is 22 1/4 inches, L is 23 inches and XL is 23 7/8 inches.
The brim of the hat measures about 4 1/2 inches from the base of the crown
to the edge and the crown is about 4 inches from the base to where it starts
to curve at the top. These measurements vary from hat to hat but are always
close to these numbers. The hat blank comes as pictured above with no feathers or pin.
The Cavalier is secured with
a cloak clasp (as pictured below) and comes with your choice of either 2 smaller feathers
or one large one. Large is available only in Ostrich feathers. Please email
me for current colors. You may also choose between pheasant, peacock and striped
quill turkey feathers as well so you may mix up your selection. The felt is a bit stiff when you first get it but it will soften up with repeated
wearing and mold itself to fit the unique shape of your head. I have them in either
Black (BLACK IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK), Tan, Dark Brown, (1st picture), and Red (3rd picture). The second picture of
a gray hat is a finished cavalier. Currently the gray hat is only a special
order hat since I have been unable to get the standard in over a year and
don't know if and when the regular will be available again. A tan cavalier hat is shown pictured further down the
page along with the Deluxe and Tricorn Hats. The hats
may differ in shades from the ones pictured like gray, brown and tan so just be aware they may not
look exactly the same shade as those shown. Lighting and computers can
affect how the colors appear.
Currently the Gray hat has a wait time on it of
1-2 weeks. My supplier is out of the boxes I usually order them by but can
make them up on a single item basis if needed. I also have other
colors now available on the single item basis, basically I order it after
you do so if you are looking for a different shade I can now get them in
Dark Green, Kelly Green, Maroon, Navy, Orange, Pink, Purple, Royal Blue,
White and Yellow. Since they are a special order hat the cost is $6 more
than the others I offer which can be ordered by the dozen because it costs
me more to order individually. These
hats have come with and without a finished edge to them instead of the scalloped edge.
I really don't know what I'll get until they arrive. Also the last batch I
got had a one inch wider brim. There is no guarantee that you would get one
with a wider brim or not but I wanted you to be aware there is that
possibility. There are
cart buttons for these hats listed below for both a Blank or a
Cavalier hat comes with a cloak pin inserted and folded up on the side but untrimmed.
The hats have a scalloped edge to them which may be left as is or you may
trim with heavy duty scissors for a smoother finish. The feathers will be loose in the box to keep them from getting bent in
shipping and you simply insert them behind the pin in the fold of the hat. The hats can be trimmed and cut as you desire but is not necessary. I
have had orders for blanks to be used in making tri-corner or rolled edges
style hats or just to use the felt cap part. Please check for availability on specific hat colors in the 3 sizes.
I try to keep all sizes and colors in stock for immediate shipping but
occasionally there may be a week or two lag time before delivery if I've sold the
last one and the new hats have not arrived yet so if you need it right away
please email me first. The hat may be slightly bent from shipping
due to the box it is shipped in but is easy to bend back into shape once taken out of the box. An
iron on the lowest steam setting may be used with a cloth in between the hat
and the iron for any flattening the brim may need.

Here is a sample color chart
for the colors available to order. The basic colors are also listed here.
Most of them look true to color in the picture except the orange, purple and
pink. The orange and pink are both brighter shades than how they came out
when scanned. Think Illini Orange and Bright Bold Pink. Those are more accurate
to the actual color. The purple is also a dark purple. It appears lighter
in the scanned image than the actual bit of felt that was scanned. The
color chart that was scanned were actual small bits of the felt on a card in the

I also have black hats in a
Tricorn pirate style hat or a Deluxe
Cavalier hat which you can see to order below. In addition to the regular
hat sizes both of these hats also come in a Small size (6 7/8-21 1/2 inches). If you wish to order one and
don't want to go through PayPal simply email
me to pay via check or money order or call toll free at 1-888-532-3304 to order
over the phone.
Cavalier hat: This hat is similar to the Cavalier
listed above but is made from a finished and trimmed felt hat instead of
the basic blank listed above. It also has a black ribbon band around the base of the crown and comes
with a sweat band on the inside of the hat. The sweat band can make this
hat a slightly tighter fit than the regular Cavalier so if your measurements are
closer to the next size up I would recommend going larger. It is available in the same sizes as
the Cavalier Hat with the addition of small as well. It is
available in size Small though, (6 7/8 or 21 1/2 inches). You get the same pin and choice of feathers as
the regular Cavalier. This hat is only available in black.
Be sure to use the drop down box when ordering to indicate your size choice.

inches, M size is 22 1/4 inches, L is 23 inches and XL is 23 7/8 inches. It is
secured with invisible nylon stitches. This hat is only available in
