The Art of Hat Making

We are fully stocked on men’s and women’s fall hats!  The studio is open Tuesday-Friday 10-2:30 and Saturday’s 12-5.  We make hats here in the studio and can accommodate many custom orders.  We also carry independent hatters from all over the country, stop on by!  The studio is located above the restaurant Bolsa in Oak Cliff, just south of downtown.

Fall 2017 Men’s Hats

Fall 2017 Ladies Hats

Annual Sale Saturday September 30th

We will be closed this Friday while we prep for the sale!  If you are in the market for a hat, don’t miss Saturday’s annual sale.  All Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter hats from the past two seasons will be up to 50% off, one day only.  We open at 9 am and will have mimosas and donuts on hand!

Coffee Sack Newsboy Hat Special!

We’ve been cleaning out the studio this week and it has become obvious we need to purge some coffee sack bags.  One of our best options for a year round hat, we customize our newsboy pattern to our clients head size while they pick out what part of the bags they want for their hat.  They can be a real conversation starter, my husband never chats with more people than when he is wearing his.  They are normally $175 but we will do a 20% off special until September 10th making them $140.  If you;ve been eyeing one of these for a while, now is your chance.  They also make a great gift!  Come by the studio or email us at

August at The Hat Shop

Always a funny month for us, August in Texas is still blazing hot but we are all thinking about buying items more for fall and less summer. We think these sewn hemp straw hats are the perfect transitional hat for our climate. It is super breathable but not as summery as a panama straw so you can wear it into October/November. We are working on some special new colors with our straw sewer so stay tuned for more pictures! Our temporary hours at the studio continue for one more week (until school starts). We are open 10-1 Saturday the 19th, 10-2 Wednesday the 23rd, and 10-2 Friday the 25th. You can always email us at for any questions!

Bow Ties

We turned around these custom bow ties for a wedding back in April in a very short window. It is really rewarding to see how great they look in pictures!

Studio Closed

The hat shop will be closed this Friday and Saturday while we get a little inspiration for fall hats in colder climates!

The Hat Shop is Almost 10!

Thanks to all of our customers and friends for supporting us, the hat shop is celebrating 9 years in business this month at our studio above Bolsa! We will be doing 10% off all hats through the weekend AND if you send in pictures of yourself in our hats we will put you in a drawing for a free summer hat.

Nine years of you guys rocking my babies while we wrapped up your hats, squeezing into our little space for the Valentine’s Day parties, waiting patiently for your orders during derby season, letting us be a part of your weddings and special events, referring countless people our way, and sharing your life stories with us. Things are way more interesting than I would have thought possible back in 2008 when I signed the lease on a 200 square foot office above a yet to be opened restaurant.

HOM Pop Up at DLM Supply Co June 9th-June 11th

The hat shop will be closing at 4 this Saturday but our pop up at DLM Supply Co is going on all weekend. Father’s Day gifts are pretty easy in that shop!
