There's something very familiar about it, and something that's really not. Our original Real Deal Brazil recycled-tarp hat is sort of like a fedora, sort of like an Aussie Outback hat -- except after a full day spent atop Indiana Jones as he's being beaten and dragged to within an inch of his life. From color shifts to wild and jagged stitching, ragged patches, stains, frays, punctures and even occasional ink marks, every uncommon characteristic of our Original RDB hat hints at the story of its prior life as a lonely truck tarp, and its rough journeys through harsh elements in the starkly shifting climates of Brazil. It's such a cool history for a hat to have that we actually print a short version of it inside each crown!

Our original Real Deal recycled-tarp hat is handcrafted in a remote town in equatorial Brazil, where recycling actually informs nearly every aspect of production, from the salvaged tarp scraps being applied as patches on other hats right down to the heavy wire hidden within each brim. That thin band of steel, reclaimed from trash-bound old truck tires, adds yet another element of uniqueness, allowing you to shape your own RDB pretty much any way you please!

Don't know your hat/head size? Grab a flexible tape measure (not the metal kind!) and wrap it around your noggin, just above your eyebrows, then read the number where the tape overlaps itself. Doing this in front of a mirror is easiest.

We guarantee getting you a hat that fits. If your RDB arrives a little too large for you, or a little too small, return it to us and we'll try again; you'll pay nothing extra but the shipping.

Please note that because our products are handmade, hat sizes may not always be exact.
