Yeah.....
the steam from the hot water makes the felt easier to bend and shape into
what form you want. Some people hold the hat over a steam kettle, I guess
Garth found a better way to do it~;)

Hi Mr. Sevens!

Just found your thread lately. Go down to Stockyards City in OKC

http://www.stockyardscity.org/

and check out this store:

http://www.shortyshattery.com/

They will fit any hat to your personal needs. Not cheap, for sure, but something that lasts forever!

I bought a black hat, that looks close to Garth's one, at "Best Hats" in Fort Worth Historic Stockyards, right across the street, where Billy Bob's is located. Those hats are stock, but semi custom made, that means, that they take a hat right off the shelf and mold it the way you like it.

Good luck!

Don't forget to have a beer, or two at the Bricktown Brewery, they have great beer and food! May I ask, where you are located in OK? My locations were El Reno (Canadian County) and Duncan (Stephens County).

Hang on!

don't ever buy cheap when buying a cowboy hat...Just buy the 150-200 hat that will last you a while as long as you're just wearing it and not throwing it in the dirt, out of a truck...or anything like that. :)

My head is a bit too large for a Stetson like Garth wears - so I had one custom made from a gentleman that is the "hatmaker to the stars!".
He is located in Rochester, NY and he reported to me that he has made Nick Noltes and other famous movie stars as well as Garths when GB was just starting out in the business.

Dave Brown - calls himself Dave the Mad Hatter. I googled the address since I don't have the hat on me - (only wear it when going to a country concert or being in "Garth" mode as people have reported here on PG -

Here is the link -

He knows me quite well - A bit hard of hearing but he is one GREAT guy. Highly recommended.
-Let me know if this helps you -

surely it makes more sence to mold it in the shower as your head is actually in it, that is what you are supposed to be moulding it too. This would be somewhat more difficult over a kettle!!
