Single Contour and Double Contour bands. What’s the difference?

Here at American Hat Makers, we offer a wide range of Hat Bands to accompany our hats. We offer some of our hat styles un-banded, which gives you the option to choose your own band from the various options we offer, or to make your own and make your hat truly unique! There is one key difference between the different bands we offer. Depending on the style of hat you have, you’ll need either a Single Contour or Double Contour band.

Virtually any other hat company offers their hats utilizing a single contour design. For some of our hats, such as the Cyclone, the Silverado, and any of our fedora styles, there is only one contour around the crown, so you would need a Single Contour band.

For our top hat styles, such as an El Dorado or a Coachman, and our outdoor styles such as a Crusher or a Breeze, the crown features two contours instead of one. This gives the hat a more exaggerated style, and causes to hat to flow around the ears rather than going straight across your head. These styles would need a Double Contour band.
