Western Felt Hat Shaping, Care & Maintenance – Part One
Several weeks ago, I was visiting with Craig Strein, CEO of the Silver Spur Saddle Shop while he was in the process of shaping a new high-quality felt hat for a customer. After a quick conversation, 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. Do you know what it takes to shape a hat? How to properly care for and store it? How can you protect and preserve your investment?
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!)
