Hatbands are the final finish and the "personality" to a hat. I have searched the world over for perfect hatband leather and spend hours reclaiming these beautiful pieces. These hatbands are made from retired reins or driving reins used to drive the plow teams in the late 1800's. Leather will vary, with old copper rivets, cracks, holes, and patina. We use the best old leather for these! Gunslinger bands come vintage look half inch bronze studs. We do our best to keep these in-stock!
