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.

This hat was so fun! I ordered it because I thought it would be funny to have a huge hat to wear to the pool or beach. But it's kinda uncomfortable. Its super cute on but only for a certain period of time. You can't really see and it's sorta heavy. I ordered a smaller one. But super fun to have for a costume.

I bought this hat because I'm extra, and this hat is very extra. It's one size, so it doesn't quite fit entirely on my giant head, but it looks better tilted to the side anyway. There is a wire in the brim so you can shape it to your liking, but the wire is not very strong, so I imagine a gust of wind would move it. Still love it though. And it arrived two days sooner than expected, thanks!

Great long lasting hat. I originally purchased this hat in brown about 7 years ago and wore it every summer. I misplaced it recently and just bought it in black instead. Both are amazing. Very convenient to be able to roll it up and put it in a bag - I can’t stand toting around bulk items. Highly recommend!

I love this hat. It’s lightweight and I really like that it’s a fitted hat with the neck cover and hat as one piece. I tried another one with an adjustable velcro strap and removable neck cover and didn’t like it. I tuck the neck cover into the back of my shirt so my neck doesn’t get burned and it is long enough that it stays tucked in. It’s awesome and I highly recommend it

Small heads/small faces rejoice! This hat is fabulous and really one of the only ones that "work" for me. I have an older hat that I have machine washed/line-dried for years---shrank a bit but still fits perfectly.

This is a great hat. I love that San Diego Hat company lists the dimensions of the hat with each one. I was able to measure my head and know it would fit perfectly before I ordered it. I had purchased a hat from Columbia that was a small/medium and it is too small. I thought I just had a big head. Not a happy thought. This hat looks great and I love that it has a tie for those windy days on the water so I won't loose it. It is a winner. It is also not so thick that it will make my head hot.

I like to wear fleece headbands in the winter, and thought this would be a nice change but it is too puffy for me, so unfortunately sending it back. It might work on someone else. It is very soft and warm.

It was very tight. I have a normal sized head and not a lot of thick hair— so, I’m not sure why it would fit so snug. Especially since it says it’s adjustable if think there’s would be more room. The look of that hat is cute tho.

This hat is beautiful but so big I had to raise my head to see anything from underneath it :) Too big diameter for my head too. It was moving around my head.

I bought this hat to wear on a trip to the Caribbean. The fit is a bit on the larger side, which worked well for wearing my hair pulled up. What did not work well was the very large and floppy brim. Each time the slightest breeze came up, the sides of the hat either flipped up (threatening to blow the hat off my head) or down under my chin. I ended up not being able to wear it at all and will be sending it back.

I love that this hat is adjustable as I seem to have a bigger head. LOL! So it fits well, but I hope it stays on during bicycling and doesn't fly off. If it does, there is a ribbon band on the inside that I plan on sewing hair combs in so it stays put. Love that you can roll it up and throw it in your bag.

The size of that hat was just ridiculous. I wanted a broad brimmed sun hat, but you need to be at least 6 feet tall to pull this off, I am 5'4", and i looked like a three year old in my Granny's Wimbledon hat. Nothing chic about this one, sorry.
