A custom Hoyden Hat is a one of a kind addition to your wardrobe that you will admire and appreciate time and time again. Through a careful design process, you will be able to make your stylish statement with a timeless piece of wearable art.  You will work with us one on one to ensure that you not only have the perfect fit but a hat that is authentically you. 

The first step in the custom process is to set an appointment to get measured. When you come into our shop to get measured we will also use a conformer to measure the unique circumference of your head to ensure that perfect fit! This process includes cutting a wood brim block in the exact shape of your head that we will use to make you hat.


Not local to Panama City Beach, FL? That's perfectly ok! You can schedule a virtual appointment where we will go over all the design aspects of your hat and walk you through the measuring process. All you have to do is order our free hat sizing kit and we will contact you to set a virtual fitting date! 

During your appointment, whether it be in person or virtual, we will discuss the different materials, colors, shapes, and overall design of your hat. For the foundation of your hat, you may choose between 100% rabbit, a rabbit/beaver blend, or 100% beaver.

Once everything is discussed, a $150 deposit is required for us to start on you hat and the remainder will be due upon completion. The typical lead time for a custom hat is 4-6 weeks but could be longer depending on the amount of customs ahead of yours or if we have to get certain materials shipped in to complete your hat. Once your hat is started we will keep you updated along the way, sending you photos of the progress. Once your hat is complete, you can come in and pick it up or we can ship it to you. 

If you see a hat you already like on our website or examples of previous customs that you like we are happy to make something similar, however no two pieces will be exactly the same.

All of our hats are designed with the highest quality materials sourced from the best suppliers. We use top of the line felts, leathers, silks, unique charms, beads, pins, pyrography, artwork, and embroidery done by hand and more. 

Every custom hat includes a genuine leather sweatband, satin hat liner, hatband or decoration designed in-house with a variation of leather, vintage or new ribbon, fabric, rhinestones, and chains.
