Every time I make a new top hat, I say it's my favorite but.....this is my favorite!!! I need to add to that so far!
Dusty's hats are custom designed and handcrafted of European Hare blend. Made in the USA at the studio in Sturgis, South Dakota. With a custom adjustable band, this top hat will fit sizes small to x-large. Each hat has Dusty's signature embellishments.
The red hatband is a vintage tie that I picked up in my travels through Nebraska. The larger sterling silver button with turquoise was rescued off of an old jacket that couldn't be saved. The smaller sterling conch was a find from Santa Fe. The feather embellishment was done one feather at a time. This will be a daily wearer for sure!
Wearable art with some vintage vibe!

Wrap the tape measure (or string) around the largest part of your head until the two ends meet at the center of your forehead just above your eyebrows. Firmly hold the tape or string mid-forehead with your finger, not too tightly or too loose. The goal is to determine precisely where your hat will sit for the most comfortable fit.
If you're using a ruler and string, proceed to step two.
Take the string from your head, being careful to hold onto the endpoint so you have an accurate account of your head size. Measure the string with the ruler.
Below is the conversion of inches to hat size.
Small 21 1/4" = 6 3/4
21 5/8" = 6 7/8
Med 22" = 7
22 3/8 = 7 1/7
Large 22 3/4" = 7 1/4
23 1/8" = 7 3/8
Even though the hat sizes provided are standard across the USA, various factors can affect the fit, such as the hat maker, the material of the hat, and even how much hair you have.
