The Bailey® Hat Company was founded by George Bailey in 1922 in Los Angeles, California. Bailey® was purchased by the Bollman Hat Company in 1986. Today, the Bollman Hat Company continues the tradition set forth by George Bailey to make the highest quality hats for the western consumer. A large portion of the Bailey® range is still produced in Bollman’s world famous Adamstown, Pennsylvania factory.
Bailey® is the iconic anti-hero of the Western industry. Noble motives may sometimes be pursued by bending the rules. Drawing from our Hollywood origins, the idea of the ‘honorable underdog beats to his own drum and seeks his own truth’ is glorified.
Bailey® targets the competitive bull rider, sportsman, field worker, and rancher. The Bailey® cowboy is smart and a natural leader. He appreciates the heritage embodied by American freedom ideals but is aware of the imperfections of life and the struggles of being a ‘typically heroic’ cowboy from the movies. While he is influenced by Western trends, he is not pigeonholed by them and is open to incoming influences from mainstream styling.
The Bailey® Western hats are designed for the core western lifestyle consumer. This collection features the best quality available including LiteFelt®, wool, straw and quality fur felts hats from 5X to 200X.
