City of Weston Hats + Work Shirts

City of Weston hats & work shirts are Cactus Creek exclusives.  The idea for these originated many years ago when I was at an auction here in Weston at the tobacco warehouse.  

 

I miss those auctions - actually I miss all auctions.  When I had my first "real job" out of TAMU I worked for the Payless Shoes corporate office in Topeka, Kansas.  I was young and single and had dreams of one day breaking out of the golden handcuffs that corporate life had provided.  I had big dreams of having my own shop one day and I spent most Saturdays at local farm auctions buying things that I could one day sell.  

 

Fast forward many years later to a spring day auction where some buddies and I split a box that had old City of Weston worker hats.  I'm guessing those original hats were from the 70's or maybe the 80's.  The one I got was well worn and perfectly broke in.  Everyone wanted me to give them that hat and of course the answer was NO.  So I decided to make our own.

 

My plan was to only make 3 dozen and then no more.  They were to be an exclusive item that we only offered one time.  But then someone's dog ate their hat (that's actually happened a few times, what's with yall's dogs?) and they BEGGED me to make more.  I think this is the fourth time we've made them now and I'll probably wait at least another year before we do it again.  In the meantime we had a City of Weston worker shirt made - instead of having the tag sewn to the shirt it's printed, just something a little different.  Otherwise these are the real deal work shirts that last FOREVER and just get better with time.

 

I made a video about all of these things below if you want to see them up close.  Check it out and as always, text anytime with any questions at all!!  816-878-2278
