And, if you are a fan of hats then a cowboy hat is a must buy for you. However, before making a purchase, you need to know that a good-looking cowboy hat may not look that great on you. Your favorite movie stars wear this hat as it serves the purpose of a fashion. Does a cowboy also wear a cowboy hat for fashion? No. This hat serves several purposes other than being a fashionable addition to one’s apparel.

Purposes Served By a Cowboy Hat

Cowboys spend most of their day hours out in the sun with the cattle. The hat protects their eyes from the sun. It also protects the head of the cowboy from heat. It keeps the head dry when it rains. Cowboys also use this hat as a signal to communicate. This hat can be easily seen in vast western plains. It hides bald head. Cowboys find it pretty useful when it comes to taking a nap.

What to Consider While Buying a Cowboy Hat?

  1. The hat should not be blown away when you are riding. You don’t have to worry about this when you pick the right size.
  2. The hat has to be comfortable. Too tight hat restricts the blood flow. A tight hat also leaves creases on the forehead.
  3. The hat should fit your personality.
  4. The fashion industry changes quickly. Same goes for a hat. There are trends. However, classical hats are timeless.

Consider Shape and Size of Your Face

  1. A hat having medium height crown is perfect for you if your face is elongated and thin. The narrowness of your face will be exaggerated if the crown is too squat or too tall.
  2. If your chin is compact then lower crown cowboy hat should be your first choice. Tilt at the top of the crown deflects the attention from your small and compact chin.
  3. Choose a hat with a medium brim and higher crown if your face is oval shaped. A hat having too low brim will make the dimensions of your face look distorted.

It is very important to consider the shape and size of your face when you want to buy a western style cowboy hat. Rockmount Western Wear is iconic and so is the H Bar C. So, visit H Bar C store and explore the best western style collection.

Get Acquainted With Stitches

You need not do a detailed research on every type of stitch. However, there is a wide range of embroidery stitches available to you. Therefore, you need to get to know some stitches so that you can choose the right one for your project with confidence. You will find it hard to categorize embroidery stitches as there are wide ranges of embroidery stitches falling under different categories. However, you need not get acquainted with all types of stitches. Right now you should know about filling stitches, line stitches and isolated stitches.

Practice Stitches

Just have fun when you are practicing stitches on various patterns. Work on some random stitch samplers. This will help in learning the basics of stitches. After working on these samplers, see how well your work looks. You can also document your work. This will keep the track of how well you are progressing.

Start With Simple

When you have successfully completed two or three embroidery projects, don’t go for a bigger one. Follow step-by-step embroidery projects. Also, follow projects by someone else. Drawing on your own is not going to be simple. Therefore, start with simple drawings and simple projects. Maybe it is too early to start with complex projects. You may lose confidence when the complex project is not completed successfully on time.

Use Good Material

Always avoid using flimsy fabric. And, don’t use craft floss also. Invest in the superior quality material only. Buy the best material you can afford. Here is why you should not use poor quality floss to stitch on poor quality materials.

  • It is difficult to stitch on the poor quality material. Frustration is expected when things do not go smoothly.
  • Even when your stitching is good, you will get the poor quality finish. This will dishearten you.

Experts at H Bar C Ranchwear always recommend trying. Don’t be afraid of trying. Don’t be afraid of imperfection. Get inspiration from others. For example, you can explore H Bar C western wear collection to find beautiful and exemplary embroidery samples.
