If you have been a long time reader, you know we had some amazing Lancaster hats made years ago and Lancaster went out of business, so, so did the Woody Boater Hat business. Well, there is good news, all the templates and stuff were sold to another company and they get it! Big time get it and make the coolest stuff on the planet. What’s even cooler is that we get to design the coolest hat ever. A special exclusive Woody Boater hat. Now, times have changed and so has money.
These hats are going to cost around $325. They are not cheap to build, nor are they cheaply constructed. With Tropical Wool and all custom sized. The design takes the quality of a Lancaster hat and we made a couple design tweeks to make them look cooler on. A little wider and taller.
Picking up design elements from the Army Pilot Crusher, and a Bancroft hat. All these were hats of the day. We will need to make an order of 20, to make it affordable and so the Hat Co can make it worth it. One offs aint gonna happen. Here is the big question. Is $355 to much? There is not much margin on this and we would need to pony up a huge amount of coin to buy them. Let us know your thoughts.
