The George Strait hat shape has the popular cattleman crease and a pinch that makes it easy to put on and take off from the crown, without handling the brim. When he first got started in country music, Strait’s handlers tried to persuade him to ditch the hat. But he refused, and now it’s part of his look. In fact, he told The New Yorker that cowboy hats have become so much his style that people don’t recognize him when his head is uncovered.

If you’re buying your first cowboy hat, or replacing an old one, this line is a safe bet. You can buy them at Boot Barn, Cavenders or Sheplers. In terms of popularity and price, I filtered all cowboy hats by “top sellers” on these three websites. These are the most popular George Strait Hats and their prices at these top western wear online stores.
All three offer free ground shipping on orders over a certain amount, whether you’re buying a hat or another product. They do not ship internationally. And their return policies are all a little different. Boot Barn and Shelper’s both give 60-days return to return a hat. Cavender’s gives you 30-days, and they make it tougher.
Boot Barn offers free ground shipping in all orders over $75. That means they all ship for free. The cheapest one is still over a $100. Under the Boot Barn 60-day return policy, hats can’t show any evidence of wear and must be returned with original tags. They have a web form you have to submit which they promise to reply to within 45-days. Boot Barn pays the cost of return shipping.
Cavender’s accepts returns within 30 days of purchase and cowboy hats must be in as-new condition (tags, packaging intact, unwashed, unworn). But you have to fill out a Merchandise Return Form. That means you have to PDF you have to print out, fill out, scan and email it back. Good luck with that if you’re out on the range. And they don’t say on their website if they pay the cost of return shipping.
Shepler’s return policy is 60-days for a full refund, as long as the cowboy hat is in as-new condition (tags, packaging intact, unwashed, unworn). And they pay the return shipping fees.
