Custom Hats by Watson
At Watson’s Hat Shop we use the exact same equipment that has been used for making custom hats for well over a hundred years. By using forgotten hat maker’s trade secrets we build some of the finest pure beaver cowboy hats, Aussie hats, and fedora hats.
Watson’s Hat Shop owns the original equipment from one of the oldest hat shops in the U.S., dating back to 1860 when Mr. Hand started Hand the Hatter, located in Boston, Massachusetts at 30 La Grange St. Today we still use that exact same hat making equipment, custom hat making process and only the finest materials when building your custom hat.

PICK A STYLE
A dress hat is more pliable and a lighter weight. A dress weight flexes to the hand and commonly found in a dress hat or Aussie hat.
This style of hat is a cross between a cowboy hat and a fedora. Typically has less of a cowboy look, but still some of a western appeal without the brim being too wide in most cases like a cowboy hat. The weight an Aussie can be a dress weight or western weight. (Per request of each hat made)
