One of the most recognizable facets of the Steampunk genre is the hat. Whether someone prefers bowlers or top hats, fedoras or pith helmets, Steampunk comes from a time before John Kennedy almost single handedly removed the hat from part of the daily and professional attire that people had to wear. However, for those looking for a unique hat that will last, and which will make sure people remember them, Head N' Home Hats is the place to go.
Head N' Home Hats, located at www.headnhome.com, are purveyors of some of the finest handmade hats in a wide variety of different styles. If folks are looking for unique Steampunk hats the site makes vested top hats, hats with watch chains, tall hats, short hats, hats with buckles and hats in a variety of different colors. There is a specifically Steampunk section on the website, but there are also sections like Voodoo (for lovers of aggressive top hats), Project Fedora or Project Outback, which all have high quality hats that fit a given theme. Of course, depending on the persona one is affecting, something from the other sections might be a better fit. Or maybe someone just wants a really nice, day-to-day hat that also happens to work at events and conventions, who knows?
When it comes to art you pay for what you get, and that goes double for the finely made products that Head N' Home offers in their various collections. That said, the cheapest models that someone could get are still going to run over $100. For some of the really snazzy hats customers can be expected to pay more than triple that price. On the other hand though, these hats are sized just for your head, and they are not only attractive, they're also durable and comfortable. With changeable bands, along with wires in the brims so wearers can bend and twist them as they need to, these hats are, hands down, some of the best out there for Steampunks that want to make one purchase and have a hat that will last them for years and years to come.
For the record (because you should state things like this) I made a single purchase from Head N' Home many years ago; one of their El Dorado top hats. This hat is comfortable, easy to to wear and it fit exactly the size I provided down to the last fraction of an inch. Though it gets a bit loose when I cut my hair, the hat has always been an eye-grabber. I was not a Steampunk when I first made the purchase, but now that I've joined the culture in my own little way I find that being a black hat gives me just the edge I need when portraying a slightly villainous character. It's made me more than memorable at the cons I attend, and I'm always easy to pick out of a room. That is the power of a hat from Head N' Home Hats. If every other part of your Steampunk garb is as eye-catching, then no one is ever going to forget having met you.
