The 15-year-old shop has a very old-fashioned feeling to it, with chandeliers, golden lighting and antique-y furniture. The majority of the men’s and women’s hats are handmade in the store, but milliner/owner Feinman rounds out that collection with a few manufactured lines. Prices range from $195–$400 for blocked hats to $200–$400 for dressier evening and cocktail hats. “I use a lot of antique findings in my hats, like vintage one-of-a-kind buckles and ribbons,” says Feinman. “When I say that the elements in a hat are exclusive to that hat, it’s really true. When it’s gone, it’s gone.”

Really nice people, these girls can make you just about any hat. And they'll repair and restore your old ones. They even have hat making classes!
Don't go to this place. I bought a nice hat and they re-used my credit card informations for another payment 1 week after my departure from NY. Since then, no answers from the shop. PLACE TO AVOID.
