What to look for when buying a hat band for a Hat (or Hatbox)
If you are like many of our customers, looking for hat bands to put on your new Hat or Hatbox, you might have already realized that some pre-made hat bands don’t fit perfectly. If the band is too long then it has to be folded over and stitched down which ruins the look of a Hat Band altogether. The same thing happens if it’s too short. Many people would love to buy a Hatband but they’re scared off by this problem. It doesn’t have to be difficult though!
We’ll tell you here what factors will help you find the perfect Hatband so that you can add true style and elegance to your Hat or Hat.
The Hat Band’s Width
When looking for a Hatband, the first thing you need to consider is the Hatband’s width. This will determine whether it can fit around your Hat or Hatbox comfortably. Most Hatbands are either ¾” or 1″ wide, but there are some that are narrower or wider than this. If the Hatband is too wide then it might not fit properly around your Hat or Hatbox and if it’s too narrow then it might be difficult to fold over and stitch down.
The Hat Band’s Length
The next thing you need to consider is the Hat Band’s length. This measurement is taken from one end of the band to the other. You’ll want to make sure that the Hatband is long enough to fit around your Hat or Hatbox, but not too long that it’s going to have to be folded over and stitched down which ruins the Hatband.
The Hat Band’s Colour
Now you need to consider what colour Hat Band will look best with your Hat or Hatbox. In general, most people prefer a neutral colour such as black or brown for their Hat Bands. However, if you own a vibrant coloured hat then this might not work so well with the Hat Band because it could clash with its colours. You’ll want to pick something neutral so that it compliments your hat instead of clashing with it. For lighter coloured hats try to go for darker bands, and vice versa for Hat Boxes. Hat Bands that aren’t the same colour as your Hat or Hatbox can also look very nice and add a distinct touch of style to your Hat or Hatbox.
The Hat Band’s Texture
Will you be wearing your Hatband next to your skin? For example, if you’re going to wear it with a Fedora hat then it might not be easy for you to pull over your head because the material is stiffer than other Hatbands that aren’t meant to go around small objects such as hats. If this is the case then consider looking for a Hatband with a different texture such as one made out of velvet which will feel much softer against your skin and isn’t as difficult to pull over your head.
The Hat Band’s Design
Finally, you’ll want to consider the Hat Band’s design. This doesn’t just refer to the Hatband’s colour or texture, but also its style. For example, if you’re looking for a western-inspired Hatband then you might want to look for one that has cowboy boots or horseshoes on it. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more elegant and classic Hatband then you might want to go for something with faux pearls or bows on it. By considering all of these factors, you’ll be able to find the perfect Hatband for your Hat or Hatbox!
Now that you know what to look for when buying a Hatband, it will be easy for you to find the Hatband that you like and will be able to complement your Hat or Hatbox perfectly.
Keep in mind, there might be other factors to consider such as price, durability and style but those are the main ones. The best way to ensure that you’re Hatband and Hat work well together is to buy a Hatband first and try it on with your Hat/Hatbox before purchasing.
Hatbands can be a great way to add style and elegance to your Hat or Hatbox. By considering the width, length, colour, texture and design of the Hatband, you’ll be able to find the perfect one for you.
