About Us

 

Old wooden hat blocks line shelves above antique machinery. Interesting tools lay scattered here and there along the tabletops. And everywhere you look, you see hats of all shapes and sizes, colors and styles. If you didn't know better, you would swear that you had just stepped into a turn of the century hat shop or a hat museum.  

You would be correct on both accounts.

Since 1909, Greeley Hat Works has been creating and renovating fine quality headwear. Just about any kind of hat you can imagine, from traditional working cowboys' hats, to fashion forward cutting edge hats. The things they both have in common are that they are all built one at a time, by hand. When you pick up a hat built by Greeley Hat Works, you can feel the difference. It isn't made on an assembly line with a "one-size-fits-all mentality". It's built by hand with elbow grease of a skilled hatter using tools and techniques, and sorcery that have been around since the 1800's.

But it isn't just the skill of the hatter that makes a great hat; it also depends on what the hat is made from. It's like the old saying "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear". Nor can you make a great hat from poor materials. Skill and craftsmanship are important, but the integrity of the materials used is the foundation of lasting quality.

With any of the Greeley Hat Works hats you are only limited by your imagination. Your Greeley Hat Works hat is as unique as your signature, so express yourself. And above all else remember...There are enough headaches in life; don't let your hat be one of them.
