Episode 170 John Cofer / Hatter / Artist / Craftsman / UFC Fighter / Founder Cofer Hat Co…

Great time on the Podcast with John Cofer talking a little about his career in the UFC & a lot about custom hat making (including the hat he’s building for me)…

John Cofer had always loved the history, appearance of and story behind the western hat. Which led to the desire and curiosity to want to create his own authentic western hat. At this time, John was living in a tiny Airstream trailer in the middle of a horse pasture in Southwest Montana. The will to learn and curiosity took the reins and the research began. A work bench and a handful of hat blocks took over where a small futon once sat. Soon thereafter, the very first western hats were created. Hat making quickly turned from hobby to passion which is where Cofer Hat Company was born. Now located in the hills overlooking Livingston, Montana, a tiny hat shop stays busy handcrafting unique, one of a kind hats for our friends near and far. Cofer Hat Company is constantly evolving and learning, bringing you high quality hats that will last a lifetime.
