Our custom made hats are shipped the world over. ranging from the traditional to the outlandish, all our custom hats are made to measure and Conformatuer fit. The Conformatuer is a measuring device from the 1890's that we have and use for all our in shop custom hat orders. Once measured and conformed, your hat that was designed at the consultation goes into the que and gets hand made in house on 125 year old equipment. The Hat is then put through multiple steps by our Master Hatters. We house 3 of 15 Master Hatters left in the US.

Hand Inked Hats are only available from McLaughlin & Hayes Hat Company. It is a technique that Master Hatter J. McLaughlin started developing over 8 years ago. Using alcohol Ink and felt brushes after the 100% Beaver hat is made, original art of Johns is first hand drawn on the hat. Then the inking process begins. There is NO PAINT used in the making of these hats. Paint wears off, the Ink is absorbed by the fiber like a tattoo. along with the complimentary cleaning and blocking all custom hats from McLaughlin & Hayes receive, like a tattoo, the UV from the sun will fade the art work. So John goes in every 4-6 years as needed and re inks the hat. This makes the colors renew and it pops like the day it was bought. John Loves working with clients to make an art hat. From floral or geometric to art deco and nouveau influenced art , Johns style of art and the art of hat making collide in the creation of each Hand Inked Hat.
