Very Good Article,

Thanks for the time and research put into this article.

I love all things industrial as well as that era along with Victorian and the Wild West. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era.

Thanks for helping me dream a bit as I read your article.

I like hats and have a few, but struggle to find what I want that also fit my big head.
Time to find a custom hat maker, any suggestions?

Who knows, maybe a Steam Punk will be in the running!

Ohhh, I love the whole steampunk thing, the hats are so cool, and i can see where you can come up with endless custom variations on designs for those. Ever since I caught an episode of Castle that takes place in an exclusive steampunk club, I’ve been thinking about the styles, the clothes, and various accoutrements of that ‘genre’ if you will, the watches and jewelry, the antique guns. But just the hat alone would make the look i think!

Steam punk hats are incredibly beautiful! First got a glimpse of it after seeing pictures of late scientists and it was more like their hallmark in that era. However, as of late, steam punk hats seem to be undergoing a form of extinction rather than evolution, even though there are still steam punk hats produced today

Hi Ennymatics, Steampunk Hats are stunning, most are one of a kind hats. We’re noticing men starting to get into the fashion side of Steampunk and wearing hats that go well with their attire. Women were definitely dominating this culture but now more and more men are embracing this stylish appearance. Thanks for commenting on this Post.
