The best hats are handmade, with time-honored techniques passed from master craftsmen to apprentice. It's an art form that takes skill, pride, love, and attention to detail. To us, excellence isn't an option; it's a necessity. And when it comes to excellence, there's no finer exemplar than Italy.
Our handmade Italian hats are made by skilled artisans who live and breathe the culture. From the very first steps of making the finest felt through the finishing touches and beyond, they handcraft each new hat at their family workshops nestled among the vineyards of Montappone. They weave their creativity to create the perfect hat. Each piece tells a story—every stitch matters.
Our process starts with inspiration, then progresses through design, construction, and finishing. Whether it's a classic fedora, safari, or flat cap, we ensure each hat remains true to its original spirit. We've been committed to bringing only the highest quality goods to our customers from the beginning. We're proud to be one of the only hat companies to travel directly to Italy to source the finest fabrics. By carefully selecting all materials and working with the world's best millinery experts, we guarantee you'll enjoy our Belfry's Italian-made hats for many seasons to come.
Breathability, durability, thermal quality, resistance to deformation, and water repellency are just some of the features found in our hats. Our hats are manufactured using sustainable materials that deliver long-term value. You can feel confident knowing your Belfry hat will stand the test of time.
No matter how often you wear your Belfry's Italian handmade hats, you'll always experience a unique style and the warmth of this incredible craftsmanship.

Soft subtle Napa leather
Cool look for the man that loves a baseball hat with class. Just a note
It runs a bit big Fabulous and hard to find Beautifully Italian not like the junk made in china
My Dad lost his hair due to cancer. The Belfry hat is warm and looks great! It is a perfect fit.
I purchased a hat for someone from your store, and they absolutely loved it. I’ve purchased a couple of hats from you before and was quite pleased. I’ve had strangers walk up to me and say “ I love you hat. Where did you get it?”, and I tell them😀
Recently purchased two hats from Hats in the Belfry. In spite of my best efforts to accurately measure, both hats showed up and were too big. Return was seamless. Reorder was easy. Customer service was phenomenal. Replacement hats fit just fine and look great. Hats in the Belfry is the place to get your hat!
I ordered both hats, Belfry Brigida,Belfry Italia and I am thrilled. The fits were perfect and the hats just as pictured.
For those of us with planetary-sized noggins, finding good hats is a real challenge. Fortunately this hat was available in XXL and I was finally able to get a bowler that fit me properly. The hat itself is hard felt and not a crushable travel hat, but instead a proper bowler/derby that requires some care. The blocking was excellent and I like the turned up sides that give it a bit more of an “Old West” rather than “British lord” feel. I ordered the blue and found it really suited me. It’s a bit darker than the website photos made it seem, but that was good as far as I was confirmed. It’s definitely not a summer hat given the wool felt and the sturdy construction. Fit and finish are excellent, with nicely bound edges and good quality lining. The internal band could perhaps be improved with a higher grade of leather, but that's a minor nit since nobody sees that except the wearer. Overall, I'm very happy to have finally found a bowler that actually fits me.
Great stuff! Cant wait to see your summer collection of straw fedoras
My husband was excited to get not 1 but 3 different style hats for his birthday. All fit him perfectly. Great quality!! Fast shipping! Definitely will buy more.
Great quality hat and very comfortable.
The color is perfect, the workmanship is top notch. Didn't fit the profile my husband had in his mind. I considered keeping it for myself, but it didn't fit.
Good delivery time
Adorable! Hat is a lacy weave on top and brim allows some sunlights through. Lots of compliments.
Five star rating for the cap. Fits to size, XL fits my 7 5/8 head size with no problem. The interior lining is well made and stitched to last.The same as the exterior material also. I would recommend this to anyone! John R
