Summer means two things – it’s getting hot out there and your felt hat is long past its season. Much like wearing white, straw hat season officially starts on Easter and ends on Labor Day. Now with the endless summer heat (or global warming, depending on who ya ask) straw cowboy hats are pulled out of the closet earlier and worn into the fall without shame. The Pinto Ranch rule of thumb: judge your hat choice by the heat index. We tip our straw hats to the following cowboy chapeaus for all of your summer adventures.
Discover the perfect straw cowboy hats for summer fun from the beach to the ranch.
Toes in the water? The Bullhide Pure Country Straw Hat features a shapeable wire edge brim making this hat the perfect choice to throw in your beach bag. The brim lets you bend and shape the hat to match your own personal style and bring it back to life after being packed away.
On the road again? The Stetson Diamond Jim Straw Hat makes for the perfect co-pilot on the open road. The short 3 1/2” curved brim is easy to wear in the car… top up or top down.
Sittin’ on the dock? On the boat or on the dock the Stetson Baytown Straw Hat will keep your head cool with a ventilated crown and the sun off your face with a 3 ¾” brim. We love this middle-of-the-road brim size. This size is a more relaxed style than your typical cowboy hat, but it still offers protection from the sun.
Back in the saddle? For a dude ranch kind of adventure, take on the Stetson River Oaks Straw Hat. The two-toned straw won’t show too much dirt, and the breathable Dri-Lex sweatband will help keep the sweat out of your eyes.
