These are the most requested creases; however, many other shapes are available. We will be happy to reproduce a crease from your photo if needed.

Rancher crown with squared front edges, dramatic rise on sides of brim, flat brim in back.
Rancher crown with brim very high on each side, slopes extremely low front and back, almost covering the eyes.
Brim edges curled up (this shortens the length of the brim). This example shows the “Gus” crown.

Used on high crowns, this is a Rancher crown with side indentations extending deeper.
