"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." William Morris
Buying a hat is simple. Walk into any drug store or supermarket and pick up a cheap hat, as an impulse purchase, from the disorganized hat tree at the end of the shampoo or orange juice isle.
However, buying a hat that is just not any hat is another matter. We’ve being buying (and selling) hats for over thirty years (Village Hat Shop opened May 2, 1980). Understandably, we have learned how to identify quality. Distinguishing ourselves by finding and buying finer hats – a quest for the best – is a natural progression of a growing and engaged merchant.
We travel the world in pursuit of fine hats. If you are a customer who appreciates wearing something of great quality, who understands how wearing a fine hat can literally change your mood for the better, welcome.
Incidentally, we have a Fine Men’s Hats department at our Flagship location at 3821 4th Avenue, San Diego. If you get the opportunity, visit this store in the historical Hillcrest neighborhood.
How boring it would be if we were buying hats for drug stores or supermarkets.
