Clearwater Hat Company: MENS HISTORIC HAT MAKERS...With
unshakable commitment to the nearly lost art of the
hatmaker each Clearwater hat is crafted in a tradition of an
earlier time, when all hats were completed by hand! The subtle
differences in color, size, texture, and character express the
unique identity of each hat. In other words, no two hats will
be exactly the same. Unlike the large hat companies, we do not
produce ten thousand hats of one size on identical aluminum blocks.
Also, we do not carry a large inventory of finished hats. As
we receive your order, we create your hat.
