Chic, but low key – This is not like the snooty Upper East Side hat shops that pretend you aren't there unless you have 5 grand of clothing on your back. But the hats are just as chic, they make to order for all sizes and shapes (yes, your head has a shape) and the service is fabulous. The place to go for all your chapeaux. And believe me as I never go out in the sun without a wide brimmed hat.
12 years later and still going strong. And I do think so!!!! – The Hat Shop has my head size on file which makes it very easy to get a hat anytime should I need one.
I have been shopping there for the last 12 years and have received only the BEST service possible.
I have also called several times and no one has ever been "snooty" at all. Perhaps GRAY BISHOP
was having a bad day when he or she called the shop. Maybe Gray Bishop had the attitude problem and
was expecting the salesperson to jump through fire for he or she. Every story has 2 sides however, The Hat Shop could not have survived 12 years with nasty or snooty service.
5 years later......................I don't think so – Called looking for a specific hat. The woman on the other end was really snooty on the phone. Her response to a question was "A fedora is a fedora is a fedora." No offense but when I'm spending money I don't need to be talked to like it's my parents money and I'm in 1st grade. I called up another store and they not only knew what I was talking about but went to look to see if they had them in stock before I made the trip downtown.
Not just for the Kentucky derby and British weddings--the right hat will turn heads any day of the week. – The Scene
"Who's the fairest of them all?" asks the mirror on the wall of this ladylike shop where sweet and stylish owner Linda Pagan will help you find a hat that makes you shout, "I am! It's me!" Once a Wall Street broker, the English-accented Pagan now whiles away her days measuring heads and demonstrating to society women and Texas tourists alike that you can change your look just by changing your hat. "See?" she coos, strutting, with a kittenish expression.
Working with up to 30 milliners at a time guarantees a variety of styles, from sunhats to cocktail party get-ups. And with prices starting at $20 for a beret (okay, so they go up to $600 for an over-the-top number just teeming with feathers, but most average out just over $200), it's been said they're the perfect accessory for a recession.
Sophisticated Lady – This little shop is TOP! The staff is helpful and know alot about all the beautiful hats for sale. The owner is also usualy on hand to give sound advice.
I walked in simply to browse and walked out a confidant hat wearing diva.
