Creation of a Custom Hat : Head Measurement

1) The first step in getting a truly custom fitted hat is to get your head measured by a Conformateur. This antique device was made in Paris, France in the 1840's. Very few of these machines still exist today.

2) The Conformateur gives us a pattern of the size and shape of your head. This companion piece is the Formillion. It is adjustable and the outside perimeter conforms to the shape of the pattern created. Although two people may have the same circumference, very few heads are shaped alike.

3) Once you've decided on the Color, Style, Quality and Trim we choose a hat body that will make the hat you've chosen.

I recently ordered and received the Kenny Chesney Palm leaf hat. First of all, I am very impressed by its quality, shape and size! I was very concerned with it fitting and it fits perfectly. Thank you! I'm not a big review guy but I wanted to share my experience with you. Thanks again for the awesome service! ~~ Jamie Martin

The hat arrived yesterday and my husband is so happy to have it back. You did an excellent job with the restoration. Thank you so much. ~~ Becki

I just received my old hat which you made almost like new. The lining is perfect and you didn’t spoil the hats character. I’ve had this hat for 30 years and you have made it so beautiful; I’ll have it for a good time more! Thank you very much and may the Lord bless you all! Keep looking up. ~~ Ron
