If you get down Southern California way, be sure to check out Baron's California hats in Burbank. They have a decent inventory of RTW hats and do excellent custom work at reasonable cost. I am wearing a Baron's fedora that they custom made for me as I head for home this evening.

Just a postscript to the above: I would advise shunning The Village Hat Shop at all costs. I had the worst retail experience of my long life there! I finally packaged up a defective hat I bought from them and shipped it back to them with a nasty letter. I would rather die of exposure or sunstroke than deal with The Village Hat Shop again.
