NOGGIN DRESSING – VILLAGE HAT SHOP

While the outfit may make the man, the hat makes the outfit.  There’s just something about a hat that adds polish, pizazz, class, and sex appeal.  It is all that and a bag of chips.  However, like finding vintage clothes, finding a great vintage hat in your size and in the color you want that doesn’t need some major surgery in a hat shop can be a challenge.  So, off to the modern hat shop you can trot to deck your noggin with some choice goods in the size and color you need.  Our hat shop we go to is the Village Hat Shop.

They carry a number of brands, including Jaxon, Borsalino, Stetson, and Bailey.  While trying the hats on in person before you buy is a bonus, they also have an online shop for those that can’t travel to one of their five California locations.

Their men’s selection is rather choice.  Whether you need a fedora, newsboy cap, top hat, bowler, or trapper cap, you can try it out and see how it, and the size, suits you.

They also have a novelty hat section.  Need Viking horns, a pith helmet, or sultan’s crown?  They’ve got it.

Unfortunately, their ladies hat section is largely of the “church lady” and fascinator variety.  Not a lot a deco queen would drool over.  However, if you’re in need of a wool cloche or beret, they can set you up.  I bought three berets because they were so inexpensive.  I also saw some floppy large-brimmed straw hats online that I didn’t see in the store that could be interesting for 30s beach wear.

    Hi,
    I love the fact that they have cotton berets since although I love the wool ones they kind of make me itch.I totally recommend the big,floppy beach hats.I've got one in red,black and white and cream.They are awesome and look cool too.
    yours,
