Sending you a picture of the beautiful hat we purchased from you guys at the Houston Livestock Show. Thanks for cleaning it up in Okc this weekend! Happy Holidays.

Yes, I walked by your booth for 15 years which was nothing but my mistake. Since I am originally from California and now live in Texas, I never thought such a wonderful hat could be made in Oklahoma!! When I finally decided it was OK to try an Oklahoma hat, I realized great things CAN be made across the Red River. As you know I now have 5 fabulous Shorty’s hats that are so comfortable and look so good, I have never been happier with a hat on my head. The entire staff at Carol Rose Quarter Horses never leave home without a Shorty hat on their heads. Thanks to you and Bobbie for all you do for all of us!

My dad and I first met Shorty at the World Show 15 years ago. She spent a lot of time helping us decide what we needed, and we were pleased with the results. A few years later we met up again in Augusta. We have taken Shorty’s hats from the trail to the show ring. A sharp hat sets you apart, and a good hat keeps you dry and shaded; Shorty’s is both. You can’t forget the service that you get from her and Bobby either, they look out for you!

Shorty and Bobbie: Just wanted to send a quick e-mail to let you know we got the hats last Wednesday afternoon. I apologize for not sending one sooner, however, Kip and I left for a camping trip right after that.

They are just absolutely gorgeous – even better than I had imagined! I took them to our barn and everyone just LOVED them. I am at a dressage barn now in North Carolina. I am the only barrel racer, but they have accepted me. Those ladies were soooo impressed! They couldn’t believe that the custom hat process still existed and how fantastic the workmanship was. They also loved the double hat can. I gave your website address to a couple of them. Some actually go to the NFR and thought they would be great to wear there.

Steph also received her breast cancer hat on Wednesday. She was just thrilled and very happy with it. She actually had already purchased a new saddle with a pink seat and rhinestones a couple weeks ago. I am really glad we got it for her as a gift and that we “blinged” it out some. The “bling” was always so not her – I think that ordering that hat actually changed her outlook on how she dresses herself and her horse!

Steph and I both said that the hats are just so pretty, we are just bound to run faster! It’s an inside joke between Kip and I…whenever I go to buy something for fashion or shows in general, he always asks if it’s going to make me run faster.

Thank you so much! We all look forward to seeing you both at Congress again this year and having a drink (or two) with ya! We’ll be there the last week for the contesting.

Thanks again and have a great rest of the summer!

We would like to “Thank You” for the great service and the nice way we were treated at your place yesterday. As a very obivous Sr. Citizen couple we were treated as “regular customers” not as if we didn’t have enough sense to come in out of the rain as so many people do. My husband was thrilled at the way his hat looked and though at our age we will not be your largest customers we will pass on to everyone ( Several grandkids who wear western hats) what a great bunch you all are.

Hi Shorty, I read an article about you several years ago in a magazine and purchased one of your hats on 1-19-08 at Maverick weatern wear in the historic Fort Worth, Tx. stockyards. I love the way the hat looks and fits, I’ve received many compliments on the hat. Thanks for keeping the hats hand made, an art that is fading away in lots of different products.

Shorty, Just had to let you know: MY HAT IS PERFECT!!! Thanks!I didn’t believe you when you said that a hat you made, wouldn’t come off my head. I almost called and told you to add a stampede string. Well, you were exactly right! My hat stays on, no matter what I’m doing!! So, besides looking way cool, it stays on my head, where it belongs. What more could a cowgirl ask for??! Again, many thanks!

I love my hat. It fits like a glove. I can’t get over how light-weight it is yet it is stiff and firm, also how velvety smooth it is. It’s a gorgeous hat. The icing on the cake is the buckle on the hat band. It has my initial on it, “S”. It may have been your initial when it left your shop, but now it’s mine. That’s a nice touch. I have absolutely no regrets spending the money or buying it from you. I will always recommend you when the subject of hats comes up.

Most everyone I associate with wears a hat at one time or another, and most hats work for casual or special occasion wear. I’m writing you to say that there’s only one hat that has held up to working and wearing…every…single…day. Yours. I have worn a hat since 1978 and when I say “worn”, I mean worn and worked in it. I’ve NEVER had a hat hold up to my kind of wearing like your 80X that I wear everyday. Yes, I now have my “town hat” also that I like to wear when I clean up for a night on the town and I’m very proud of it. Thanks for making a superior product for a reasonable price and standing behind what you make.

I must tell you that I have heard for ages that if you are only going to own one hat in you life…make it one of Shorty’s. Someday…if I ever win the lottery, I am going to get the one I saw in Cowboys & Indians Magazine’s last issue…the one with the brown & white cowhide on the brim…what a hat! You are truly an artist! I know that if my Great Grandmother was still with us, she would be sporting a hat from Shorty’s! (She was always a sucker for a great hat!)

Howdy Shorty, I read the article in Western Horseman I whole heartily agree! You are the “QUEEN OF CROWNS” I’m often asked. “Sir” “Is that a Stetson?” “Heck no It’s a Shorty’s” That is one nice hat! I’ll never buy a custom hat anywhere else! “I LOVE MY SHORTY’S CABOY HATTERY HAT!” Thanks so very much!

Howdy Shorty and Company,

Just wanted y’all to know folks here are complimenting my hat. I’m strutting proudly and telling loudly about the “Queen of Crowns” and her wonderful court – Shorty’s Caboy Hattery. I told a guy the other day, “There is no way in heck I’ll buy a custom hat anywhere else! I’ve tried the rest and now I own the best. Shorty’s Caboy Hattery is the best there is! Everything else is just fancy felt.

Quality remains long after the price is forgotten!

My day was made complete yesterday with the arrival of my new gorgeous Shorty Hat. I think everything is just right, I might have to just make a slight adjustment in the front shape to make a little crisper line on the flat of brim front. Otherwise it’s just great. Love the pecan color and the lacing has perfect richness to it without it looking too embellished… just right. Thank you!

I was in yesterday and just wanted to tell you how much I appreciated your hospitality and your craftsmanship. You got my hat done quickly and it looked great. You have a great store and I will be back to do business with you in the future and I will definitely spread the word about how great of a job you do.
