Actually, I don’t like the term cheap cowboy hats. I think inexpensive is more appropriate. Because let’s face it, cowboy hats can be expensive. And as they continue to grow in popularity, major fashion designers will produce hats with a pretty hefty price tag. And they stay for a longer time in style In fact, they’ve been in style for hundreds of years, dating back to the days when they were used solely for protection from the elements. Felt and leather cowboy hats were great for keeping warm and straw cowboy hats provided great protection from the sun in warm climates. And yes they are still worn for those purposes. But now they are more worn for making a fashion statement.
Obviously, there are cheap cowboy hats, and there are expensive ones. How much you are willing to spend should depend on your reason for getting one in the first place. Straw hats are typically the least expensive. I said typically. Much depends of the straw used in making the hat. The key to finding cheap cowboy hats is shopping around. Even the most expensive ones can be inexpensive if you find the right sale.
But remember the old adage about getting what you pay for. More often than not, it’s true. If you will be wearing your hat often, you’ll want one made from a high quality material and you’ll want to make sure you take proper care of it or even the best hat will quickly lose it’s shape. If you want it to last a good long time and you’ll be wearing it often, a cheap cowboy hat may not be the best way for you to go.
If it’s something you’ll only wear on rare occasions, perhaps to your next Halloween party, then by all means, shop cheaply. Or better still, just shop for an inexpensive cowboy hat.
