Leatherhub has something similar, but nothing exactly the same.  Seems like something he might like to develop, though —can't hurt to ask!

Tandy has a pattern for one. Its in a set of 4 different hats

Wow... if "Aristocrat" isn't the exact same pattern, then it's very VERY close!

Thanks. We have a new historical site for a muster of War of 1812/ Spanish War and friends dress up in these.

I know some Spanish and US regiments wore a stove pipe hat but would you also not be looking for the Belgic [style] Shako? In its long form and its false front form?

btw; to be historically accurate; these hats, both the plain Stove-pipe, the Stove-pipe Shako and the Belgic Shako are made with the flesh side of the leather to the outside of the crown. This was to replicate the look of the beaver fur used on the better quality officers' hats

I’m sorry. I got my wars crossed up. War of 1812 and Creek Indian War. I am poor at leather, a worse historian.

You should read 'The Chicago Massacre of 1812'. I got it as e-book
