San Diego Hat Company

San Diego Hat Company Logo
Combining a strong passion for world travel with a tremendous love for hats is what led San Diego-based friends Andrew Bleecher and Teresa Gardner to create the Original Cotton Crotchet Hat® that launched their business in 1993.

In the beginning, the pair ran their fledgling business out of a San Diego garage. A groundswell of interest in that first hat spurred them to search for new materials and craftsmanship to expand their line. Over a short period of time, increased demand allowed the company to expand and flourish.

The San Diego Hat Company strikes a balance between being a leader in fashion trends for hats while bringing maximum value to its customers. From children to adults alike, they provide a wonderful assortment of timeless fashion trends in fun and functional colors, styles and fabrics – all at a great value.

From that very first hat in 1993 to today's fashion-leading trends, The San Diego Hat Company has remained true to its original focus of providing its customers with their favorite hats each season. By utilizing fresh ideas to create unique items that don't look mass produced, they have continually separated themselves from their competitors.

Not for me. Love ponchos! This one was just too many too’s. Too hot, too thick, too off-white, opening too close to the neck. back it goes.

This hat is beautiful! Pastel colors look just like the picture. I thought it was going to be too big but it’s not at all. I love wearing it at the pool. There’s a fabric string in the hat to tighten to your liking and you can shape the brim. Gives great shade. Well worth the money!

Absolutely the best hat I’ve ever owned. Comfy. Fits well. Protects from sun for me and me baby when she’s in the carrier on my chest. Bought over 5 years ago. String broke and I replaced but otherwise amazing.

This hat is very comfortable. The brim is just wide enough to shade my face and neck. The straw is pliable and a good quality. And best of all, it rolls up and fits snugly in my suitcase.

It’s adjustable so size is no problem. A little floppy but cute. It’s very hot and Sunny here in MS so this little hat visor helps keep the sun off my face and out of my eyes when I walk

Beautiful. Floppy but sufficiently structured to keep it out of your eyes. I wish it had an adjustable internal band as it fits me a bit loose. I think I have an average sized head - most one size hats fit me. I also wish it had a chin strap since it will definitely get caught in wind!

This hat it outstanding. It is beautifully shaped, frames the face well, and is all together GRAND! I chose the pastel stripe--outside my comfort zone--but it ended up being such a fun option without being loud. This hat is perfect for being at the pool, shading not only your face, but also your shoulders and entire upper body. I admit I did not keep it--I was looking for something that had an elegant feel that I could wear on my walks around the neighborhood. Unfortunately, this hat is not for those brisk walks. If I had a beach anniversary coming up, or a pool party where I wanted to impress, this hat would definitely be on my IT LIST. Yes, I'm a little sad that I don't have any of these events coming up.....
