Head N Home Hats
Head ‘N Home Hats is truly a family business, consisting of expert tanner Gary Watrous, his brother Lee, and Gary’s son, Garth.
Head ‘N Home Hats was founded in 1981 by Gary Watrous. His natural talent for working with leather kept customers coming back for his well-crafted products. Having admired hats since a young child, Gary decided to merge his skill with leather and admiration for hats, and began to sell leather headwear in 1979.
What makes Head ‘N Home Hats extra special is a treatment that was designed by Gary that enables hats to be manipulated into specific shapes. These hats are created with carefully chosen materials that allow the hat to be handled roughly without losing shape or becoming destroyed. Many other hat brands without Gary’s specific properties quickly show wear and tear and do not retain their original shape.
Gary and his family have blended their natural talents and entrepreneurship to create uniquely designed hats that are unlike any others in the headwear industry. With the combination of Garth’s expert skills in leather, Lee’s knack for salesmanship and design and Gary’s charismatic personality and youthful style, they intertwine their own sense of design and talent to create the headwear their clients most desire. It is not often that you find a family business that is made up of multiple generations who are able to work so closely together.
Materials are, perhaps, considered the most important ingredients in creating a well-made hat. Of course each hat that the Watrouses create is handmade and designed from materials such as cowhide and fine top grain. Small embellishes such as silver coins and bones are added to infuse a western look. Every hat shows visible signs of the dedication and detail that is taken to produce a hat worthy of the Head ‘N Home brand. Together, each one of the Watrouses add their final touches to their finished product, and double and triple check for even the smallest of defects. If any damage is found, small or large, the hat is tweaked or redesigned until perfection is achieved.
"Old and new” is a constant theme of many styles seen at Head ‘N Home Hats. The design techniques and the actual style of the headwear combine to create modern cowboy styles that have become wildly popular among Hollywood stars. Western-style headwear featuring silver, feathers and animal skins can be seen alongside Steampunk-themed hats featuring corset type lacing and gold hardware; those might have been worn by any of Charles Dickens’s characters of the Victorian era.
It is not just the impeccable styles that have made Head ‘N Home hats such enviable headwear. Headwear is often taken on trips, and because of tight space in suitcases or airplanes, a hat can easily become damaged and not fit to wear. Head ‘N Home Hats ensure their customers that all their hats are both packable and crushable. Each hat is 100% American-made and comes with a lifetime guarantee. Water resistant, breathable and 100% UV protected, any wearer can feel confident when choosing a Head ‘N Home hat. Whatever the style, whatever the season, Head ‘N Home Hats will take care of your headwear needs.
