Man's Hat Shop
Since 1946 this store has been the leader in men's and women's head wear, offering custom fitting, accessories, cleaning and hat blocking. Choose from straw hats and Greek Fishermen's hats, Kangol Caps and French and English Barrettes, and of course cowboy hats. The Derbys, Dress Fedoras, Tom Mix, Town & Country Casual and Gouchos begin around USD50. People in New Mexico know if they are looking for a cowboy hat this is the place to go. This shop is easy to find. Located in downtown Man's Hat Shop sits on the world-renowned Route 66 .
I love the many styles and all the choices,I have purchased 4 stetson,s fur felt hats from here and i really love wearing them.When i return to the big A on central ave next year i am looking foward to my next purchase.I live in Jonesboro,Ga but i wait until i am in Albuquerque to purchase my dress fedeora.
I have bought hats before at a couple of northern New Mexico hatters that are well renowned in the hat business. nothing bad to say about them, but I was really refreshed on my first visit to Mans Hat shop. I wanted a straw cowboy hat and I always find my small head very difficult to get fitted in something that looks decent on me. they spent as much time as needed trying on tens of hats, finally finding the right one that fit well I bought it. I was leaving town that same day and wanted it shapped by the regular guy there who usually does them, so they offered to have it done how I wanted and ship it off to me at my home the very next day!! given I was an out of state customer they didn't have to charge sales tax, but did have to charge shipping which was about even with tax, so it was a wash to have it sent and I also didn't have to carry it on the plane, which would surly have bent it up? those guys are very friendly and helpful as well as full of knowledge. I will be happy to buy my next hat here again next time I am in town!!!
With the sole exception of Lock & Co in St James's in London, this is undoubtedly the best hat shop I have ever been to. The service is excellent, the stock is splendid. I look forward to having my Stetson reblocked here in a few years, but I expect I shan't have to for a while, because the initial advice was so good.
Very enjoyable shopping experience. Manager and staff very courteous and helpful. In fact, I stood around talking to the manager for a couple of hours. I buy a lot of hats and know what I am looking at. It is very unusual to find "open crown" hats or a place that will block them. I bought two felt hats and a straw hat and a couple of hatbands. They helped me select the best hatbands for the appearance, and blocked the hats as I requested. The prices were lower than I have paid many times elsewhere, and the selection of hats and hatbands was outstanding. I would NEVER again buy a hat elsewhere. I am getting ready to buy more stuff from them right now. BTW I am astonished at the few negative comments posted here.
Several years ago I bought a nice Stetson and a $75 hat on sale in the same visit. Both have served me well in different ways, and the staff could not have been more helpful in making sure I was satisfied with the size and shaping of both. I no longer live in the Southwest and appreciate this shop even more now that I have nothing that even approximates its service and products. This is a thoroughly professional operation.
Had the pleasure of buying three hats (all Stetsons) from the hat shop. I appreciate the response to detail and the listening to the needs to the customer. I would go back in a second if only my hats would wear out. I would highly recommend! Jack McCarthy.
With a box of felt and $370.00 less in my pocket, I'm still wearing my $20.00 cowboy hat from Western Warehouse. Factory creases are cleaner with a better fit and you don't have to be afraid to touch it. I felt pressured into buying more expensive hat that now has no value because I won't wear it. It's a practice of common sense. A hat is meant to be worn.
If you want to experience RUDENESS at its best, then speak with the manager of this store. He will certainly make you feel like dirt, and do his best to slam the phone down on you whenever possible. This is all out rudeness at its worst.
These gentlemen really appreciate your choice of a western hat. They enjoy the experience of outfitting you as though they were purchasing their first hat. They are more fuzzy about your hat fit than you can imagine and the hats are made of outstanding material. These guys are real craftsmen and it was a pleasure to do business with them.
