Hat's by Lil'Grizz

Recommended Posts

This year i decided to get myself a gift, after years of struggling with ill fitting hat's i said enough is enough.  I happened to stumble on a hatmaker named Lil' Grizz and the rest is history.  All i had to do is give him my head measurement and a overhead picture of my noggin and he turned out a hat that is truly mine.  He made me a buckaroo style which is a gus creased hat with a pencil rolled brim in pecan.  Man it fits so nice and looks good too, couldn't be happier.  Just wanted to pass this along to ya'll, if your lookin for a handmade hat in the tradition of the 1800's using period blocks and tools Lil'Grizz is your hatter.

Yes they do, only ever had assembly line hats before this and have more of a long oval head shape.  Had to deal with the red mark on my forehead and a headache.  Not anymore I love this hat, fit like a well broken in pair of boots from the get go and i thought the price was pretty good too.  Already tryin to decide which one i want next

How about a pic? :) I'm lucking in that Stetson 7 1/8 fits me perfectly, but I also love custom stuff. Glad you found a hat that works for you.

Here it is, Grizz calls it the Buckaroo.  Now i just need to decide on a hat band, thinkin maybe a horsehair or a double buckle wide leather Leboufstyle.  New hat also inspired me to finally build myself a hat rack outta some old roughcut cedar i had laying around, cleaned up pretty darn good i think.DSCF2780.thumb.JPG.0439c70e119a99c6e049a946f6e40488.JPGDSCF2778.thumb.JPG.de992df7199ca2d9541f7b733b359b8b.JPGDSCF2779.thumb.JPG.c2bea947f10692b9e34c00685d76329b.JPG

Thats one fine lookin hat Flint looks good, is that a montana peak in sand?  That may be my next one, already lookin.  Purposely built a couple extra spots on that hat rack and the 30 year old resistol on the top could go ta greener pastures as it never fit worth a darn even after attempts to stretch it.

I had them customize the pinch, I call it a "Clementine."

Thank's Flint, from picture's iv'e seen i like the sand color.  Just seem's he doesn't offer it in some of the styles i'm interested in, maybe just have to give him a call.

I know what your saying, iv'e alway's been partial ta black hat's, but figure i don't want every one the same color.  Kinda hard tryin to visualize what a certain style hat would look like in a color by a online picture.  Maybe i just need to get one of each then i'll know.  :D

You're screwed :P

 

 

You can look at his page on Etsy without joining. I'm sure he has a phone and/or contact info listed somewhere on there. I think he's got a website as well, but I was just stating the most responsive way to contact him.

Sound's good Al.  Maybe it will be a little early for ya since the christmas rush is over.  I ordered mine the day after the christmas cut off and it came plenty early.

Well, I liked my Lucas so much I decided to get another. I wanted something with a bit more brim, and darker since my '73 likes to deposit dirty brass up on top of my head. I consulted with Mizz Grizz (Joy) and ended up with a customized Southwestern style. They agreed to iron the front and rear pencil curl and give it some dip to the brim. Living where I do, I have access to a lot of locally made native american art work, and the concho hatband was made by a local Navajo craftsman (the buckle in my profile pic was made by a local Zuni). I tried my hand at steam shaping the felt and perfectly fit the hat to my head. I can't say enough good about Hats by Grizz.
