Owner Dina Pisani is heavily influenced by New Orleans, which is evidenced by both her designs and her studio (exposed brick, chandeliers, gold velvet chairs). The fedora is Pisani’s perennial bestseller. “For fall we do felt [$200–$250], and for spring we do straw [$180–$220],” she says. “We’re in New York, so neutrals [sell] the best: black, browns and charcoals.” Top hats cost from $275–$400, depending on embellishments, and porkpies and bowlers are priced between $1805–$250.
