Choosing the Right Marching Hat
Uniforms, marching shoes, gloves — now add the finishing touches to your group’s look with custom marching band shakos. Traditional shako headwear gives your uniforms a polished look while helping to make each marching band longer, taller and more finished. Band Shoppe has several different styles of headwear to choose from including the industry's only truly In Stock Marching Shako Hat that ships in just 1 to 3 days.
Shakos are the most common hat on the field used mostly by high schools. Shakos typically come in 5 basics shapes, Century, West Point, Atlas, Olympic, and Highlander, each having their own unique characteristics. Shakos feature a small visor, a chain or flash strap over the visor, a socket at the top for the plume, and a chin strap to help hold it in position. Decorate your marching shako hat with an emblem, embroidery, or a custom hat wrap. Hat Wraps are an inexpensive way to update your shakos for shows and special events. Available in almost any fabric imaginable or have your own custom design printed right on the fabric!
