This Classic hand blocked musician's porkpie in burnt orange wool felt with hand stitched embroidery, leather cording, feathers & concho is part of my musician's collection. Designed with my love of music in mind. The flipped side brim features hand stitched "voodoo child" in a variegated orange and cream embroidery thread. The band area is also hand stitched with random abstract stitches that hold beautiful pool blue suede cording. The band area is finished with small dyed and natural peacock feathers and a buffalo nickel concho.

Size on this hat is medium 22 1/2 - 23 inches, but can be custom made to fit if you are a different size.
The porkpie style, because of it's low crown, sits mainly atop the head, so the fit is more universal than a style that fits down on the head more. It is often worn back on the head showing more of the bottom of the brim, or more forward to show the crown. It just depends on your personal style!

This hat is a one of a kind and ready to ship.  If you are interested in this style in a different with different color or material choices, please email me at

I ship most packages via USPS and USPS Priority Mail.  I ship to all US addresses and most International addresses.

Because of new postal rules in the US, I cannot ship larger hats via First Class International Mail. The package size exceeds the maximum length + girth allowed. International customers will have the option of either Priority Mail International (6-10 Business days) OR Express Priority Mail International (3-5 business days).

International customers are responsible for any customs and processing fees levied by a foreign government. Customs may also cause delays in delivery time, so please plan accordingly.  If your purchase is returned to us by the postal service due to unpaid Customs fees, A Pate Designs is not responsible to refund your money or for additional costs to reship the item(s).

I normally ship within 1-3 business days of receiving payment for your "Ready to Ship" and/or "In-stock" purchase.

Made to Order items take 1-4 weeks to complete, depending on the item and depending on the time of year and current order log. Rush orders are sometimes available for an additional fee.  International Racing schedules, such as Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot, Melbourne Cup, etc. could extend production time by an additional 4 or more weeks depending on the amounts of orders we are processing.  Please allow as much time as possible when ordering custom headpieces around these busier times.

All my couture hat designs are hand-blocked and stitched in my studio using traditional, time honored, millinery techniques.  If you are interested in a custom hat of any kind, please feel free to email me at  Thanks for visiting my shop!
