Custom-Making Hats for Any Occasion (Even a Castle Wedding)


“I was in SoHo, just roaming around the streets, and I ran into this hat shop,” said Mr. Durant, currently with the Golden State Warriors. “It felt like something out of a movie. You walk onto a side street and you see a traditional, old-school classic hat shop that sells nothing but hats.”

The walls of this narrow but cozy store are decorated with every manner of dramatic hat. They come in bold reds, bright pinks and emerald greens. Some are splashed with fanciful ostrich poufs, while others sport African peacock feathers or handmade silk flowers.
