Bill Conner turned his craft into a thriving hat business out of necessity. His wife was about to have a son, and he needed a way to survive and still have the flexibility to surf and enjoy the Australian laid back lifestyle. He designed Australia’s first leather hat with a shapeable brim and revolutionized the hat industry by using a light weight leather which was an alternative to the common felt hat. His classic Stockman style with its wide brim is designed to protect you from the harsh Australian elements. To ensure you have the genuine original Australian leather hat, look for the brass BC Logo on the hat band. B.C. Hats is still a family owned company dedicated to quality, service, and original Australian hats.
