This week, we have received many emails, phone calls and Facebook messages from customers and friends all around the world. We appreciate the concern, and have been truly moved by the well wishes we've gotten from as far away as Asia, and as close as Brooklyn. All of our guys made it through just fine, and while some of us may still not have power, all of our families are doing well. Rod, Colin, Jose, Marc, and Kevin are manning JJ's for the next few days. Sean and Gabe will be at the Brooklyn store. We will reopen the East Village shop as soon as the electricity is restored. Come by, share your storm stories, and get warmed up if you need to. We're here, doing what we've done for the past 101 years.
With tropical storm Sandy looming off the Eastern Seaboard, the rain is going to be intense this coming week. Our Rain Collection is sure to keep you dry and warm during the storm. Any of our Fur Felt hats also perform well on rainy days, but be warned, the type of soaking that Sandy is looking to bring our way may result in a hat that needs to be reshaped. Not to worry though, we will reshape any hat that may need it free of charge.
Pork Pie Hatters has opened its second location in Williamsburg Brooklyn. The shop, located at 441 Metropolitan Ave, carries on the legacy of the original Pork Pie Hatters in a more spacious outer-borough location. Pork Pie Brooklyn will carry the same great styles as the East Village location, as well as more than a few styles unique to Brooklyn. The Brooklyn shop will also be home to an extensive collection of never-worn vintage head-wear dating back to the late 1940's. Stop into the new location for a hat, a game of chess, or to chat with Colin, the new store's leading man.
Using a tape measure, measure the widest part of your head (just above the ears and eyebrows) to the nearest 1/8th of an inch.
If you have not purchased a new hat recently, please remeasure your head, as sizes may change depending on hair style, weight loss/gain, and age.
Please also keep in mind that hat sizes vary depending on the manufacturer, so if you are unsure of which size to order, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to advise.
If you are in between hat sizes, try this cotton sizing to make adjustments at home.
