  1. I really am enjoying my new sagebrush fur felt hat. I shied away from hats before; but, Colonel Littleton looks so good I had to go for it. This hat is great!

  2. Like the Colonel, I’ve been a “hat guy” since I bought my first garage sale Stetson for a quarter as a kid. Or was it ten cents? I now own a nice little collection of lids. This one has all the quality and style of the iconic American brands. A real heritage quality hat. I guess I should have expected nothing less, but honestly, everything I get from this company somehow exceeds expectation.

  3. Visited the store today and bought a felt hat. Even got to meet the Colonel himself! Great hat and great folks at Colonel Littleton’s ! I will be back.


  4. Certainly a 5 star hat. I like shopping the catalog online, but, I like even more making a visit to Lynnville. Quality products, and quality customer service.

  5. Comfortable, natural fit. I always wear a summer (Panama hat) to keep the sun off. This will be a great hat for the rest of the year. I may have to add a stampede string for strong windy days.

  6. No 2. Fur Felt Hat: SMILES, STYLES & PROFILES!

    The immortal words of The Nature Boy, Ric Flair, say it all. I have a small fedora collection, and the Colonel’s No. 2 Felts in putty and sb occupy a very pleasing and large sweet spot within it.

    Each CL product starts with a design aesthetic that is timeless, yet distinctive, communicating in a common language that is readily apparent across the entire line. But the genius takes place when the specifications are passed on to the workshop, and the craftsmanship takes over to create a product that defies replication, particularly at price point, ANYWHERE in the global market.

    And I enjoy that there is a vein of American mischievousness that seems to run through each Colonel Littleton product.

    In addition to the “stash” band, the 4×3 grommeting on both sides of the No 2’s give each a curated, functional appeal.

    I can’t be sure, but I mightily suspect if The Nature Boy had been wearing one of these hats back when he was wrasslin’ he’d STILL be the reigning champion!


  7. I am a “HUGE” Colonel fan. I literally have purchased over 75 items in the past 8 months. All of the items have been A+++.
    I intend to write reviews on all items over the next few months. This is my first. I purchased the fur felt hat, the olive color. I live in Florida. Everyone loved it. It has a bit Indiana Jones feel to it. Well put together. Came with band to reduce size ,if necessary . Came packed in excellent condition as all of the Colonel’s merchandise does. Color goes great with jeans or khakis. A very sharp look. I wasn’t a hat guy except for ball caps. This hat is very cool. Gives you a chance to tip it to the ladies as well.
    Keep up the Great Work Colonel and Kudos to Ms. Charlene and Ms. Joyce.


  8. The folks at Col. Littleton are very special. Their products are whatever comes after outstanding. Their service matches their products. Very special!

  9. This is my second hat from the Colonel. First was the Panama and now the Backroad Fur Felt hat. After more than alittle thought, I chose the putty color and am very pleased with the color as well as the fur felt material and design; which is consistent with my Panama. The shipping was very timely and packaging first rate. I will be enjoying this hat for some time to come. Take the plunge, this is a great purchase. Highly recommend.

  10. Great hat , made with quility workman ship. Will be around for years to come .


  11. I purchased the hat for my husband and he loves it. It runs true to size and the sagebrush is a beautiful rich color. He has worn it for 2 winters and it still looks new. It retains its shape well.


  12. I bought this hat for what few cold weeks we have here in Texas. As with all the Colonel’s products, this is a very well made hat that really looks sharp. I’ve gotten quite a few compliments on it. I’m quite sure it will last for many years.

  13. We bought this hat for night time and fall/winter use! The quality and workmanship is of such a high standard only being surpass by your customer service. Your sales people make you feel like your the only one in the shop and answer all questions asked and provide details about the purchase.Thank you again for such a quality hat sure to last for years of wear.


  14. Bought this while at the store in Lynnville. Great quality hat that looks amazing and is functional what more could you ask for.


  15. I bought this hat this past winter. I have always been a fan of felt hats, and this takes the cake. I wear mine in all types of hunting environments, rain sleet or snow, and it never disappointed. I tend to buy “lifetime” products, and this is very much a lifetime hat. Absolutely love it, and the money flap on the inside is a very nice touch.


  16. Just received my putty #2 felt hat. I am still recovering from cancer being removed from my face. Third time it’s been done. Now i got smarter and wear a hat everyday. Just ordered the panama for the summer. These hats are great looking and feel great on the head. Not to heavy.

  17. Saw the hat last year and determined I had to have one. I spent my 65th B’day driving to the store and buying a putty fur felt hat. Unlike most of my other hats this one fits perfectly and looks fantastic. It was a nice day trip to Lynnville which is true Americana.


  18. I purchased this hat from the store for my husband. He looked so handsome in it, so I knew he had to have it. The salesperson graciously made sure it fit properly by adding a piece inside the band. It is made beautifully, as all Colonel Littleton’s products are made.


  19. Bought the tan colored hat yesterday. Love the look and feel of the hat. I will be purchasing the Panama Hat for spring and summer, and will probably get the darker colored fur felt next winter. Thank you so much for the wonderful customer service at the Lynnville store.


  20. bought the back road fur felt hat in Putty. Well made hat in classic style. It should be great for use outdoors and I like it much better your traditional cowboy hat since the brim is floppy and bends


  21. My wife and 3 daughters bought this hat for me after seeing the excellent quality of the Panama hat and the sheer joy on my face. It’s cold for 7-8 months out of the year up here in Michigan so I have plenty of opportunity to wear this hat. I get compliments weekly. LOVE my Col. Littleton hats!!!


  22. I love my No. 2 felt hat. I’ve worn it a lot this winter and always get compliments. I just ordered the No. 2 Lynnville Panama Hat for spring and it is on backorder in my size. I can’t wait to get it and wear it when the weather gets warmer.

  23. Just received my #2 Felt Hat and it is just beautiful! I am new to hat wearing, so this is an adventure to find the right one…and this is it! Great quality…what you would expect from the Colonel…coupled with amazing service from Joy who spent time helping me find the right size and answering my many questions. She was excellent! Finally, received my hat in one day, perfectly and carefully packaged. Love doing business with Colonel Littleton. High quality products backed by great people. Hmmm…Panama for the summer? Thank you!


  24. My wife got this hat for me for Christmas last year (2015) and I wear it as often as I can in cooler weather. I get so many compliments on it. Love it!


  25. I love it.

  27. My wife gifts me stuff from Col. Littleton because she knows I appreciate a fine piece of gear. This hat does what they say it will – it covers yer grape in style.


  28. My new #2 Backroad hat in the putty color came today. It is first class all the way. I now own the Colonel’s Panama & #2 LOve it, Love

    Richard W (verified owner)

  29. I bought my #2 Hat about a week ago and absolutely love it. I only regret I can’t wear it everyday. I can hardly wait to wear it duck hunting this year. An excellent piece of gentlemanly headwear.


  30. Not only is the hat of great quality and ready to wear straight out the box, but the pride in packaging reflects the Colonel and his true Tennessee pride-(Please pass along a big thanks to Polly for the packaging). The Colonel’s grandfather would be proud! I have worn hats for years and now place the No. 2 Backroad as my all-time favorite.

  31. My experience was that of the customer above who felt that the hat was broken in after 12 years. This hat fit me like a glove the first time i out it on. i was a little worried about the range of sizes, small, medium, etc. This was not a justified worry. I measured the size and a medium fit perfectly. Here in central Pennsylvania, the last few winters have been pretty cold. I expect to wear this hat for many, many years with as much comfort as is possible. Again, well done, Colonel!

  32. Great Comfort
    It’s is just now really broke in after 12 years of service. Many have ask where to get theirs.


  33. Great Hat!
    This is an excellent hat! I have worn for a few weeks now and receive many compliments. Comfortable – money well spent. Looking forward to wearing it for years. A man should own 2 of these!


  34. Best lookin hat
    I travel all over the country for business, I have several complements a week when wearing my hat. It is a great hat that holds it shape and feels good wearing it. I bought the hat 7 or 8 years ago and I wear it every day during the cold weather. I switch to my #2 Panama Hat during the warm weather.


  35. Excellent field hat
    Have owned several of these hats. You can shape the brim as you want and they just work for field use.


  36. i bought this hat a few weeks back. i am thrilled with the hat.
    scary how good a product this hat is.


  37. #2 felt hat
    I just bought this hat yesterday and don’t want to take it off. I am a lady that buys a mans hat to fit my head. This hat is absolutely wonderful.

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
