“He took pleasure in taking cattle”.
The “Rustler” from Ugly Outlaw is a perfect example of how I can resurrect a hat. Created from a vintage Stetson, I was able to re-color through distressing, as well as give this lid a new look and shape. I most always build a hat from scratch and rarely re-work vintage hats unless a customer sends me one of their personal ones, but here’s one for the taking.
Maybe you liked the way it was before. Fine, if you like boring and want a hat that looks like every other one out there. I’m sure you can buy one elsewhere but not from me. I dare to be different and my hats are designed for those that want to stand out.
This vintage Stetson/Ugly Outlaw has a few new added features besides its color and distress. A new copper color grossgrain ribbon band, the same color trim around the brim and a hand cut, handmade leather band that wraps around the base. The leather band has a few intricate details in its design.
The inside has a new calf leather sweatband as well as an Ugly Outlaw liner to top it off. It’s a good hat, it’s different, and it’s a head turner so put it on yours! The “Rustler” from Ugly Outlaw.

Yes!!!! Ugly Outlaw WANTS you to sweat in them! It’s adds to the character! Get that natural outlaw sweat ring around the crown! I specialize in Western character hats similar to but not necessarily exact in design to historic cowboys and gunslingers both historically and cinematically.
If you have a style, color and size in mind then feel free to write to Ugly Outlaw and let me know. I may be booked up and it may take a few weeks but I'll try my hardest to make it? Let’s chat and we’ll figure it out.
Shipping is not only calculated by the weight but also by the size of the box needed to ship a hat in. Location plays a huge role in the Price as well. Many times Ugly Outlaw has eaten the cost because we didn’t charge enough. If you live in California or close to Los Angeles then shipping may be considerably cheaper. If this is the case we can gladly refund to your personal PayPal account. Ugly Outlaw takes great care and consideration when shipping the hats. I custom make a proper, sturdy hat box to keep the hat from shifting around while on its journey.
Yes! The majority of the hats on the site are handmade. On some occasions I will restore a vintage hat by giving it a new shape and look . Those hats will always be labeled as “Restored” with a description. Making hats is a process. A hat can sometimes take a week to make. A blank piece of felt or beaver fur is made wet with hot water, it’s molded over a particular hat block of whatever size I choose to make that day, it’s ironed, steamed, sanded, steamed some more, shaped, then sprayed with hardener, shaped even more, then the band is added, etc, and so on.
Great question! Each hat is priced accordingly based on a few things. The main thing being the type of felt. 100% wool can range between $100-200 depending on the amount of time and effort put into it. 100% hare (rabbit) can range between $300-400 and beaver fur goes for $355-500, once again depending on the amount of time, effort and materials. Another factor is the weight of the fur which is measured in grams. For example, a western weight 165g hat would be a higher price since it is thicker and more durable.
Yes! Message me for details.
No. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!!!! Please make sure your hat size is correct. Please measure your head and let me know both inches and centimeters so I can get an exact size for you. Please don’t base the size on a hat you already own quite simply because a lot of brands vary in sizes and are off in one direction or the other. For example, a hat may be a 7 1/8 but another brand may call that a 7 1/4.
