Hatter Rick Silverstein in his Massachusetts factory. Mr. Silverstein helps to keep this venerable American industry - and slice of U.S history - alive. He comes to work each day wearing both the hat of a designer/craftsman as well as that of a businessman. Although battling an economic tide going against domestic apparel manufacturing, ask him how he's doing and he'll tell you that his approach of operating "a boutique hat-making factory" is doing just fine, thank you. Rick is a rarity, a last of the Mohicans. His unusal combination of skills as well as a true love of the hat making process keeps the great hats coming.
