Makins Fedora Hats

Marsha Akins began making and blocking hats in her one-room apartment in New York City's East Village in 1974. 36 years and 3 family run factories later, Makins has been making beautiful handmade, handblocked quality hats ever since. Never mass produced and always top quality, Makins represents the American tradition of hard work and great design.

DelMonico Hatter is proud to feature these special fedoras. Without a doubt some of the finest hats available today, these fedoras are unbelievably soft, undeniably comfortable, and utterly unique.

Makins hats run slightly large, so in-between sizes should lean toward the smaller size.
