Makins

Makins
Makins hats are "handmade", one at a time in their factory in New York city. They began production in 1974 using a jiffy steamer,and molded the raw hat bodies over wood blocks. The hats were then baked and dried in a home oven. Now more than 35 years later, they are in their 3rd New York City factory. They still make all their hats by hand, one at a time, using steam to mold the straw and felt bodies over the wood blocks. Makins take great pride in making the finest hats available. Makins hats are soft, flexible, easy-to-wear-hats that people feel good in.

Synonymous with Hip-Hop, Jazz, Retro And Modern, you ve seen Makins hats on the most famous people. Brad Pitt personally requested Makins hats for the 60 page shoot and cover of the July 2007 issue of W magazine that he first shot with Angelina Jolie. Some of the hats Brad Pitt wore in the issue were actually his own Makins hats that he brought to the shoot. Carlos Santana almost always has a Makins hat on whenever you see him. Eddie Murphy wears a sewn leather porkpie, Djimon Hounsou wears a sewn leather fedora. Tiger Woods wears our two-tone yellow and black panama, Snoop Dog wears a lot of Makins hats, Cedric the Entertainer wore a Makins hat in the Budweiser light commercials airing on TV. And Steve Harvey, Nicholas Cage, Wyclef Jean and Denzel Washington have all worn Makins hats. Madonna owns Makins hats as does Alonzo Mourning and Jamie Foxx.

Makins hats are all made of the finest fur felts, leathers and straws. The award-winning Makins Hats Ltd. has been honored with both the Coty Award for injecting excitement into a long dormant category and the Cutty Sark Award as Best Mens Accessory Designer.
