  =  Weather is Foggy    = 1 cup ‘o coffee = 0 hats worked on

This is such an unfamiliar feeling. Writing a blog I mean. I believe it’s been over 4 months since any of the Pauls wrote in our blog. Appalling, shocking, and very very disappointing I’m sure. There’s no real excuse, but a lot has been happening actually.

Firstly, we are going to be creating a mini-Paul’s Hat Works within a larger menswear conglomerate downtown come late September. This requires lots of planning, inventorying the doubles of our tools, and figuring out who’s going to be working down there.

Secondly Paul 2 and I will be heading down to Ecuador August 22nd to pick up a fresh batch of Montecristis! Email us at if you want to order a fino with certain special specifications. Lots of planning and brushing up of our Spanish to do in the next month.

Thirdly, we have two other special collaborations in the works with other companies, but we’re keeping them under wraps for now….we’ll keep you posted and reveal more as time continues.

The shop is very busy, custom orders pouring in, I would advise ordering custom felt hats soon as the fall and winter projects and events are looming.

In other news, in shop beauty operator Miss Janet has started to install her new salon sink, so schedule your shampoo or dye job now! Exciting times at PHW!

We also recently attended a fun networking event at the Bold Italic Headquarters, partially sponsored by Boutiika, a great website we are on.

Come by for a cup ‘o coffee anytime,

~ Paul 1
