THE END IS NEAR! Well, sort of. Only about 6 weeks left to shop in store here in Goodnight. Come check out the crazy deals; visit the "new" homestead/distribution facility across US 287 - the new home of Herd Wear Online. Need furniture, antique store displays, store decor or some of our Herd Wear signage? ... it all has to go and I am motivated to listen to offers. Remember, June 29-July 6 we will be serving bison deli dogs and burgers lunchtime; music some days --- and if you want to attend the July 5 dinner concert there are a few tickets left. Remember, ticket sale proceeds go to 4 of our local charities. There is a new (easier to swallow) ticket/donation - $50 - that gets you the same "swag bag and goodies" ... lunchtime burgers etc ... but not the fancy dinner July 5 Call or text me if you need clarification (or just to yak!)
Yes, folks ... BIG NEWS. The Texas Historical Commission has bought the store in Goodnight. We will be there through the end of July, 2024 ... and then on line or by phone. No; we are not "quitting" - HERD WEAR will continue. Be sure you are on our email list and also on Buffalo Wool Co's list.

Chacon Bison, Rattlesnake and Lizard Leather Hatband


Made by Chacon of New Mexico.

Bison Leather:  1/2".  The finest shrunken-grain bison leather to match the elegant Chacon bison belts we carry. Bison leather tie. Made in the USA.

Rattlesnake - 1/2".  Beautifully crafted by Chacon ... just enough snake to set off any great hat without overwhelming

Lizard - 1/2".  Glistening and textured, but again, just a bit understated.  

Buffalo Nickel - 1" band with 10 genuine 1919-1936 Indian head/Buffalo nickels on lightly carved steer.  Plenty cowboy without the shouting. (Oh, maybe a small “Whoopee!l)

Dan S. (Texas, United States)
Great products, fantastic customer service!

Love my new Chacon Bison, and Lizard Leather Hatband I ordered. It is of very good quality and fit my hat well. Ordering was easy, shipping was fast. Will purchase from here again. Thanks!

Dan: Thank you and again my apology for not having the other one you wanted ... as I explained about our great friends at Chacon and their being so close to the fires in New Mexico ... and having to leave for almost a month. Enjoy and stay well .... and to all of you whom I have not replied to your reviews ... thank you for all of those. I have read and appreciated them all ... and will try and get back to responding as these crazy times permit.

Bison Nickel hatband for my 20%Bison hat!

I bought the BuffaloWoolCo Flat Top hat but thought a Bison Nickeled hat band would be much better than the cute green ribbon and it looks much better indeed! (Can’t share photos in this review so take my word for it.) Most hatbands use fake nickels but this is incredible with real nickels that make it truly one of a kind. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to purchase such an original and unique item.
(Oops - a few weeks ago I bought a Chacon Bison leather hat band as well - it is now on another felt hat of mine. Its high quality convinced me to buy the more showy Bison Nickel hat band for my BuffaloWoolCo FlatHat!)

Well, John shared a photo of his 'upscaled' flat top with us ... and yes, you can take his word that it really stands out beautifully. John, thank you once again for your sharing ... and your sense of style; both at the top of the list!


Best hat ever

We stopped in the store outside of Amarillo on February 2nd, bought the bison hat and hatband. Just recently, mid May, my husband had to stop wearing it as its getting too hot. He's worn it more than any other hat he ever had. I wish I'd bought one for me. It's so comfortable.
