Possessing over 125 years combined experience, our staff consists of some of the most knowledgeable hat people in the world. Since 1911 we have built on the experiences of those that came before us to create a hat buying experience that is rivaled by none. Our salesmen care about the product, the customer, and the legacy. We can boast over 100 years in business due in large part to the work of the gentlemen below. Stop by any of our locations for a personal consultation with one of the salesman, and they'll make sure you end up with the right hat.
