Bronco '8 Second'-12357
The 'Bronco 8 Second' brick top hat is a rodeo classic!
Just like all of our Bronco styles, this one boasts an off white/cream coloured straw and breezy air flow thanks to the perforations around the crown.
The '8 Second' style is available with and without trimming around the edge of the brim. Both variations also feature a leather hat band with buckle closure.
These straw hats are light and cool thanks to the air flow allowed by the perforations in the crown. The hats are lacquered to protect them from water damage, and they won't shrink after getting wet and are quite stiff and rigid. The wire inside the edge of the brim allows you to be able to bend and shape the hat to your liking.
Adults individual sizes (leather sweat band):
53cm, 54cm, 55cm, 56cm, 57cm, 58cm, 59cm, 60cm, 61cm.
The individual sizes with leather sweat bands will mold to the shape of your head after coming into contact with some moisture (usually sweat is enough to do the job).
For an extra snug fit you can also add some our adhesive foam hat inserts underneath the sweat band.
Where to measure:
Use a cloth measuring tape to measure tightly around your head at the point where you want your hat to fit. As a guide, two finger widths above your eyebrow and one finger width above your ear is generally where a cowboy hat sits. Use the measurement you get and compare to the size chart below to find your hat size. If you fall in between sizes it's best to opt for the larger size, as you can always pad the lining of the hat.
Please Note: We have kids and adult hats that cross over in crown size, however the brim on the adult hats are much bigger than the kids hats, so if you're an adult size 53, make sure you buy an adult size 53 hat, because a kids size 53 on an adult might fit well, but will look comically small.
