Here at Hats in the Belfry it is our mission to provide not only a great selection of quality hats, but also expert advice and assistance when you are searching for the hat that was made just for you. We are passionate about hats and dedicated to our customers whether they are first time hat buyers or have been shopping with us for years.
This kind of dedication and service doesn’t just happen by accident. We have a team of people who make it their mission to provide a great hat shopping experience. And today, I want to introduce a few of them here on the blog. The question of the day was,
Why is Hats in the Belfry more awesome than any other hat shop?
Daine, Asst Shop Manager Fells Point and Inner Harbor Baltimore - What makes us better than any other hat shop is that we aren’t like any other shop. We started as a hat retailer and now we are designing our own hats. We are constantly moving forwards to become not only the coolest hat shop but the coolest shop online, too.
Jennifer, Shop Manager Annapolis - Caps and hats have really become the “it” accessory, just as important in your wardrobe as a scarf and gloves. Our selection is the best and our store atmosphere is warm and inviting. We are the place you want to be to transform into your “character” which is what a hat can do.
Keith, Shop Manager Fells Point and Inner Harbor Baltimore - I think what sets us apart from other hat stores is our selection. I really like that I can remember selling so many people their first hat whether it was because they didn’t think they looked good in hats or that they had been searching for the perfect hat and were finally were able to find the right hat at our store. Those customers really stick with you it’s an experience that is not only memorable for the customer but is memorable for me as well.
Our dedicated shop managers are the people you want to go to for hat advice. They have been matching people with their perfect hat for years and have seen many a hat trend come and go. So I asked them,
What is your favorite hat in your shop right now?
Daine - My favorite right now is the Belfry Hancock. It’s a classic, timeless look and it is eye catching. The Steel Blue color stands out above your basic Black or Brown fedoras. That’s why I love it.
Jennifer - My favorite style right now is the pub cap because it is great for both men and women. I have a couple hats that I wear all the time in the shop, but my favorite right now is the Belfry Calais because I like the patchwork. It is stylish without being too trendy. If I’m not wearing a cap I also like the Goorin Brothers Minna Timeless. The Minna collection has a story to tell and are very one of kind. I really like this hat.
Keith - Shop Manager Fells Point and Inner Harbor Baltimore My favorite hat at the moment is the Belfry Ross. I really love herringbone patterns and I like its classic ivy shape. I worked on mine a little and once I got the right curve to the brim the Ross is perfect.
Robert, Shop Manager Philadelphia - My favorite hat? It’s hard to choose from, there are so many, but one that stands out is the Belfry Coltrane. This hat is timeless. It brings you back to the days of KOOL. You know the Rat Pack and the Jazz scene days. This is a great hat to pair with a stylish scarf.
The Manager’s favorites might just be the perfect place to start if you are looking for your perfect hat. - Shannon
