The Unspoken Parts Of A Leather Hat: Anatomy Of A Common Accessory
While a hat may seem like a simple and common accessory, there is actually a lot of anatomy that goes into its design and construction. In this blog post, we will be exploring the different parts of a hat and its purposes. By the end, you will know the difference between a brim and a band, and you will be able to name the different parts of a hat with ease.

So, let’s get started by looking at the different parts of a hat and what they are used for:

  • Crown 

The crown is the tallest part of the hat and is typically pointed or rounded. The crown can be made from a variety of materials. It helps to keep the hat in place on the head and can also be decorated with materials such as beads, feathers, or ribbon.

  • Crease/Dent

The crease is the line that goes around the circumference of the hat. It's typically sewn into the hat so that it has a more permanent shape. The crease can be functional, as it helps the hat retain its shape, or it can be purely aesthetic.

  • Brim

The brim is the part of the hat that goes around the entire circumference of the head. It helps to keep the sun out of the eyes and off of the face. It also helps to protect the head from the elements, such as rain or snow.

  • Band

The band is the part of the hat that goes around the head, just above the brim. It is typically made from the same material as the brim. The band helps to keep the hat in place and can be decorated with a variety of materials, including beads, feathers, or ribbons.

  • Inner Lining

An inner lining is a type of fabric used to line the inside of a hat. This type of fabric is usually made from a variety of different materials, including silk, satin, and cotton. The inner lining helps to protect the hat from wear and tear, and it can also add a bit of comfort and style.

  • Inner Sweatband

The inner sweatband of a hat is designed to absorb sweat and keep it from running down your face. It's an important part of any hat, especially if you're going to be wearing it in hot weather or while working out. Without a sweatband, your hat will quickly become soaked with sweat, making it uncomfortable to wear and difficult to keep on your head.

  • Underbrim

The underbrim of a hat is the part of the hat that covers the wearer's eyebrows. This part of the hat is important for protecting the eyes from the sun and for keeping the hat from slipping down over the eyes. The underbrim is also often decorated with a band or trim.
