a happy NUDU customer after 10 years!
"Happy New Year Ron!
I stumbled upon "RES Hats" today by way of something else. This is the 10th year for my Gibbon's Nudu hat that you made for me. I've kept it in immaculate condition. This photo was just taken.
You probably don't remember this hat you made for me; it's been a while. I just thought I'd say, "Hello".

Men wear NUDU in the grocery store
www.reshats.com
Brenda Grantland: You're a creature of men's fashion programming Ron. Put on a baseball cap and you're incognito. Wear a cool fedora or Ron Shelton man hat creation and you are on stage. It takes guts to wear real hats because people look at you. I think that's the psychology behind the hatless years. People are intimidated.

Brenda Grantland: Ron you've got to help men overcome that fear of hats. Wearing a natty hat and having people look at you is fun. It feels fun to wear and makes others feel good. What is there to fear about it?

another satisfied REShat customer.

"I purchased this for my 4-month-old grandson. I became a fan of the cap after seeing Billy Gibbons wearing it. After much searching on the internet, I found Reshats on Etsy. I contacted him, he was patient with my questions and professional. Within three weeks I had the cap. It is beyond any expectations I could have imagined! The craftsmanship and detail are exquisite. I really appreciate the care instructions that came with the cap. The seller doesn't just want your business now...he wants to make sure you are pleased with his workmanship for years to come. Good job Reshats!" -KH

The image is from FOX Bones episode 6:23 (Change in the game). This was my first commission to make a baby size NUDU. This was 2011, and I have been making them ever since!

The blocking of the Newsboy hat onto the wood hat "block" (form). The felt is dramatically steamed until infused and very subtle. Then it is stretch over the wood block and tied down, then steamed over every inch. Dried, and then removed from this 5 piece "puzzle" block, without damaging the shape of the hat.
