Hat Cleaning, Hat Blocking and Repairs

Cleaning and blocking a hat?  What is that all about?   Well, before this age of planned obsolescence and throwaway disposable items, it was good practice to take care of your beloved possessions as they could last your entire lifetime.  

Men and Women hats can be cleaned blocked trimmed and shaped
The past five to ten years has seen a resurgence of good quality clothing and other handmade items that you don't want to throw away when they get shabby or damaged.  
 Clean and Block your hats at The Hat House New York  347-640-4048

If you have a hat made of good materials, such as a fine straw or fine felt it is worthwhile maintaining and restoring this accessory.   Felt hats made of furs from beaver or rabbit fur are particularly good for cleanings and restorations.

A well made hat that has completely lost it's shape can be made to look new again after a specialized cleaning and replacement of leather sweatband and ribbon trims along with stiffening, hardening and reshaping as required
Fur felt hats can be cleaned and blocked at The Hat House New York 347-640-4048

We can make your hat larger or smaller and get you that comfortable perfect fit.




Hats are unlike other clothing as they can be over 100 years old and still be restored to a new looking condition.    This is true in the instances of beaver fur
felt hats.  Believe it or not, beaver felt hats have a long history and are responsible for much of the colonization  in the USA and riches in early New York City.   Beaver pelts for good hats made John Jacob Astor fabulously wealthy in the late 1700's and early 1800's... here is a photo of a beaver on a tile taken at the Astor place train station.  If you have seen it on the tiles, you may have wondered what this was all about.  Hats!
New York...Hats are here to stay and they need upkeep once in a while!

New York Times Fashion and Style Hats Men's Fashion week article from Bill Cunningham ... "The main points on the guests in the show are the felt hats"

Hats in New York Men's Fashion week were a highlight of the event. "It's a whole new expression" Bill Cunningham states regarding men's felt hats during this New York Fashion Week 2015. He was referring to the way the hats are being shaped and worn.

Being primarily a felt hatmaker (as well as a Panama Hat specialist)  in New York City, I'm one to read anything and everything regarding hats and was quite pleased to hear this.   It really is no surprise to me as our hat shop has been outfitting our customers with just these type of hats for a while now.  

Something started to look familiar to me in Bill Cunningham's NY Times video.... lo and behold, I saw one of my customers wearing one of my handmade custom hats!

This one is a wide brim custom hat that I make in many variations to your exact head shape as well as your size. A proper fit is critical to obtain the right look and be comfortable to wear. 


Mens Fashion Week Hats New York Times and The Hat House NY

The demand for felt hats has been growing by leaps and bounds.  In addition, more and more people are realizing that a good hat; like fine shoes, a handbag, bespoke suit or other well made clothing requires a bit of an investment.   In order to look good in a hat, you should have a well crafted hat made of fine materials.

I'm starting to see more and more people wearing higher quality hats recently.  A well made hat that fits your body type and facial structure will make you look and feel a thousand times better than wearing a typical hat bought without regard to quality.

Stop by my shop and I can show you first hand.  

Well...back to Bill Cunningham's cool New York Times Fashion week video blog.  I was really enjoying watching the piece and especially the section with the men's hats photos he provides.   

After being surprised to see the above photo of my handmade hat in the Men's Fashion Week article, I spotted another in the same article.  It is one of my one of a kind hats that was built to order for the model in the photo.
