The Workshop

Our Story

The Workshop at J.J. Hat Center produces seasonal collections and custom creations designed by our in-house Milliner. It exists as a culmination of a century long commitment to hand-crafted, quality products. The Workshop provides a place for our customers to work with the design team to create their perfect hat. It also provides our customers with a window into the art of hat-making. Each creation is made on hand turned wooden blocks dating back to the 1800's, and sewn with machines that pre-date our 1911 opening. All hats that carry The Workshop logo are produced 100% in our 5th Avenue workspace.

Size Chart

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 and we’ll be happy to advise.

If you are in between hat sizes, try this cotton sizing to make adjustments at home.
