In this video, Shaping a Western Felt Hat – Part Two, Craig Strein will share his over 40 years experiences in the world of western hats.
This video is a continuation of a visit I had with Craig Strein of the Silver Spur Saddle Shop, several weeks ago. While I was visiting with him, he was in the process of shaping a new high-quality felt hat for a customer so I asked if I could both film and interview him as he went through his process of breathing life into this particular hat. He graciously agreed.
We all know that a good quality, solid Western felt hat is an investment but do you know what it takes to shape a hat? Craig answered many questions and shared his expertise when it comes to shaping and caring for these hats.
Craig literally has over 40 years of shaping and selling hats and as you will see in this video series, he’s learned from the best in the industry. If you want to learn more about what makes a good hat, how to care for your hat and how to protect your investment, we invite you to watch this two-part video series on Western Felt Hats! (And just a little “PS”…the video on straw hats is coming soon!)
