Sorry, we cannot accept C.O.D. orders

Every effort is made to ship your hat within 48 hours of receipt Monday thru Friday, pending availability (we generally ship even faster). You'll be notified if merchandise is currently unavailable and when we expect to be able to ship.
Please note that items ordered together may ship separately from different locations. You must include a complete street address in order to use Expedited Services (3 Day, 2 Day, or Next Day Service - Expedited Services are not available for PO Boxes). PO Box and APO/FPO addresses will be sent via USPS Priority Mail when possible.
What Shipping services do you offer?
Domestic (US) Orders
APO/FPO (Overseas Military Mail) Orders
International (Non-US) Orders
Note: Keep in mind that these are estimated shipping times. Domestic (US) Residential Delivery time make take upwards of 5-7 days (excluding Sunday and Monday). US commercial deliveries are made Monday through Friday.
If time is a factor, please select an expedited shipping option in order to receive your hats sooner.
Expedited Shipping Requests: (Next Day, Second Day, and Three Day Services)
ORDERS RECEIVED BY 7:00AM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME (10:00 AM IN THE EAST) WILL SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY. OTHERWISE EXPEDITED ORDERS MAY NOT SHIP UNTIL THE SECOND BUSINESS DAY FROM THE DAY ORDERED. EXPEDITED ORDERS SHIP VIA FedEx and USPS. THERE IS NO PICKUP SERVICE ON EITHER SATURDAY OR SUNDAY, HOWEVER FedEx DOES OFFER SATURDAY DELIVERY-THAT OPTION IS AVAILABLE AT CHECKOUT.
[Example: A hat is ordered on a Wednesday morning. The customer chooses two-day shipping service. The hat ships on Thursday. Two FedEx/business days - with no delivery on Saturday and Sunday - means that the hat arrives on Monday.] All overnighted orders that ship on a given work day, will be received the following work day anytime until the end of the day. If you need morning delivery you will have to call for special arrangements.
Shipping and handling to the USA will be charged as follows:
|ORDER TOTAL||ORDER TOTAL||USA||USA||USA||USA||APO/FPO|
|FROM:||TO:||GROUND||3 DAY||2 DAY||NEXT DAY||USPS PRIORITY MAIL|
Alaska / Hawaii (Expedited Shipping)
FedEx does not provide Three-Day Service to Hawaii and Alaska. If you'd like to use expedited shipping to these locations, please select USA 2 Day Service.
If a single hat is ordered with an expedited shipping option (Next day, 2nd Day or 3 Day) and we are unable to ship the hat immediately due to availability, the backordered hat will be shipped out with FedEx and USPS ground service upon it's arrival and you will be charged accordingly.
If multiple hats are ordered with an expedited shipping option (next-day, second-day, or three-day), and we are unable to ship the order complete, the back ordered hats will be shipped free of charge via regular ground when they arrive.
Note: We require PayPal payment only for any shipment going to a Freight Forwarding company. We will not accept any other form of payment.
The cost of shipping hats around the world is ever increasing. We are committed to investigating new options and/or negotiating rates in order to give our customers the best price. At this point, little more can be done to lower rates (but we will keep trying). We know that the following sounds self-serving, but it is nonetheless true and may help: For shipments outside of the USA, we suggest that you consider buying more than a single hat. In doing so, you are assured to lower the shipping cost per hat.
What International Shipping services do you offer?
APO/FPO (Overseas Military Mail) Orders
International (Non-US) Orders
A challenging part of our mission is to realize the promise of the Internet by connecting with our web site visitors from all over the globe. We, as merchants, will be able to communicate with, sell, and ship our hats to customers virtually anywhere. This is where the world, via the Internet, is heading but we are not there yet. One problem is the cost, reliability, and scope of service vis-à-vis shipping. Another is credit card fraud. In an effort to bridge these problems and pioneer this new frontier, we offer the following:
Note: If you order more than one item and we are backordered on part of your order, we cannot afford to make multiple shipments for one shipping charge. You will have the option of waiting until we can ship your complete order or being assessed an international shipping charge for each part of your order that you wish shipped. We will ship within 48 hours (excluding Saturday and Sunday) of receipt of your order and picture identification.

Order Processing TimeBack to Top
We have numerous facilities that we fulfill orders from. There may be up to a one-week delay in the shipping of multiple-hat orders internationally. Because of the high cost of shipping internationally, unlike domestic orders, it will be necessary for us to first accumulate all the products in one facility before shipping the goods. If time is of the essence, you may request that we ship hats separately, but the customer will then be responsible for an additional shipping cost.
Taxes and duty
Please understand that we do not know the laws in every country regarding taxes and duty for each and every kind of hat material that we sell. It is the responsibility of the customer to pay such duty and taxes (if applicable). You may want to research this before placing an order.
We are currently working with shipping options to try to offer the best service at the lowest cost. Our current offering is called FIMS. FIMS is partnership with FedEx and the Swedish Postal Services. Why Sweden? It has been determined that the Swedish Postal System has the best, most reliable postal service in the world. We are giving it a try, and if it works for our customers, then we hope to lower shipping prices and make international shipping more affordable for everyone. Tracking will not be available for 3 or 4 days, and some of the package travel routes may go through Sweden for no apparent reason. Sometimes when flying to San Diego, CA to Salt Lake City, Utah you can get routed through Texas; though it seems out of the way putting many people through a central hub can make things work smoothly for everybody. The package should arrive to your county's postal system in about 4-7 business days. After that it is up to your country's postal system to deliver it to you. Of course if you have questions, please email us at [email protected]
We offer PayPal as a payment option for our International Customers. However, we are now requiring that certain countries remit payment via PayPal only. We can no longer accept credit card payment from these countries and selected countries with larger orders. If your country is on this list we will email you at the time you place the order.
For any shipment going to a Freight Forwarding company - we will not accept any form of payment other than PAYPAL.
