"It is clear  the hat represents the distillation of a great deal of thought on your part...and a lot of careful craftsmanship. I do not know of anyone else who could have done what you have done anywhere near as well. I am very grateful for all your efforts. Your work is absolutely spectacular....as I always knew it would be. I cannot even begin to conceive how the hat could be any more beautiful or well made. I am truly and deeply grateful for all your work. I do not believe there is another artist  who could have done it anywhere near as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your many talents with me."

Nicholas Hayes - Kansas

Rodney made me the best hat I’ve ever owned. I’m very particular about how my hats are shaped- I’ve always shaped my own hat. I grew up on a horse ranch. Whenever we got a new hat, the first thing we did was fire up a pot of boiling water so we could shape our own hats- I'm particular about how my hat looks. Consequently, when I started looking for a hat maker I was very particular and did a lot of research; I wanted the best I could find if I was going to spend the money. North Valley Hat Co. fit my specifications. I have to admit, I’m not the easiest customer because I’m real particular about how my hat looks, but Rodney did not disappoint. He did a fantastic job. He shaped my hat exactly how I wanted & kept in touch with me throughout the process to ensure my satisfaction. I can honestly say, this is the finest hat I’ve ever owned! Thanks Rodney!

Jeannziger - Switzerland

Trey Wimberly - Texas

"Thank you so much for the hat! I couldn't be happier with it! Looks amazing! Will definitely be back for another!"

John Carey - Minnesota

"Better than I ever expected.  It was worth everything. I don’t know how you do it but my hat is absolutely perfect!  Thanks again.  It has been a heck of a fun ride with you and I sent your information to a couple of my attorney friends.  I’ll get you some business. Have a great day.  Have a great life.  We’ll be in touch."

Dallas Lafrance - Oregon

"Thank you so much for making that hat it is amazing and fits like a glove. You are awesome, I will defiantly refer you to friends and buy hats in the future. Thank you again." 

Bruno Moro - Florida

"The hat is great, I love it. Very comfortable and I like the way I look with it. I am confident it will also be very durable. Please do not throw away my measurements."

Cotton Randall- Nebraska

“Rodney makes truly the best hand made custom hats I have ever seen in all my 38 years in the business. There are a lot of custom hatters, Rodney Allison is simply the best!” 

Seth Vesco - Nevada

"I just want to let you that I have received my hat and it is awesome... you do such an awesome job...Thank you so much!"

Richard Jensen - Attorney - Alabama

"Two years ago I bought a 100% beaver custom fedora from Rodney. It is amazing and never fails to draw compliments each time I wear it, which is usually every day. This month he delivered my new beaver custom "Gus" hat in a unique gold color I asked for and it's perfect!! Rodney makes incredible hats of impeccable quality. His hats are competitively priced with off the rack Stetson prices but much better in quality and finish!  Skip the off the rack and get the custom hat you deserve from North Valley Hat Company! I'm a customer for life."

Russell Round - Colorado

"I got the hat today, it is really a great one. The fit is right on! I am amazed how you got that fit from your long distance methods?? That's great. One of the most striking things about this hat is that color! It is the most rich deep color of bone I have ever seen, or maybe that is just because it is of a high quality felt?? I am really pleased with that color, it really stands out. Thanks for a job well done, I think it was well worth the money and will certainly recommend your work to any one." 

Bridget Gallagher - Idaho

"My hat arrived today! You sir are a true artist. It is simply fabulous. I am deeply grateful. Many many thanks for a job so superbly done."

Ken Colvin - Texas

"I got the hat today and I can tell you that I am completely satisfied. You really did an excellent job. The hat is exactly what I wanted. Every detail is well done, in fact, above and beyond what I've seen from every other hat maker that I've had experience with. The hat fits just right. Once again, a big thanks to you sir."

Steven Lundvall - Oregon

Bought a hat 2 years ago.  Custom measured to my head at his shop and 100% beaver felt. I wear this every day and it has held up extremely well.  Best hat I have ever owned; period.

Jaclyn Levine - Montana

"I hope all is well. I received the hat and it is PERFECT!! Thank you so much!!!! I can't wait to wear it at the next event."

Lee Miller - Oregon

 Just wanted to say thank you to Rodney Allison for the work you did on my dad’s old hat. It fits and looks much better now. You even managed to bring back that soft to the touch beaver finish.

 No surprise then that the custom 100 percent beaver hat you just made for me is more perfect than I could have even imagined. Soft yet sturdy. Fitted to perfection.

You are a true master of your craft. In a world of disposable goods where quality loses out to convenience, its nice to see that craftsmanship and uncompromising pride in ones work is still alive in America.
