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.

I LOVE this hat! I have a hard time finding hats to fit my larger head (lots of brain!) and when i searched specifically for hats to fit larger heads, SD Hat Company popped up AND FIT THE BILL! Well made & stylish, I will probably get a second one, THANKS SD Hat Company and Zappos!!!!

The beads was off when it got here. It is a cute cap, but I felt like the decorated bee parts will come off easily. The distressed brim part was not my style either. I like other hats from San Diego Hat Company, but not this one. returned.

This was larger than I had envisioned - somehow the round shape made it seem REALLY big. But it was cute and would make a great summer tote. Except, I couldn't deal with the smell. It's a natural product and maybe the smell would have dissipated but I decided against letting it air out in my house.

This hat is not functional if using for a reason other than style. The style was nice but the top part was very shallow and wouldn’t stay on if wind blew. It did not feel secure

Best packable fedora I could find. When packed with some care, it's easy to get the shape back when you are ready to wear. The LG/XL size felt loose for my LG size head, but didn't look too big.

Thought this would work to sit at the pool but the loose weave provides no coverage at all. It does fit well and my head doesn't get hot though!

Super soft and cute. Fits great. However, the adjustable back closure might be an issue for those with a larger than average head because it doesn’t expand nearly as much as other baseball caps I own.

This was really cute, and the fabric is very soft. The only negative thing I have to say is that it shed really bad and after wearing it for a few hours, there were little fuzz balls all over me.

Cute hat, lightweight and casual. Compliments! Not incredibly wide brimmed, which is practical sometimes, but still protects pretty well. Brim is stiff and holds it shape out, kind of up on the sides and down in the front like a cowbow hat. Not a flexible formable brim, or a floppy brim. I will wear it a lot this summer. I don't think it will pack well...it feels like something you should not crush.

perfect! I have a slightly larger head but not giant (for baseball hats I wear men's as women's ride too high on me). This fits great. The black mixed color is really attractive. Kind of dressy but would work at pool or beach too. The brim can be formed to hold it in place, so it does not flop in your eyes. I love a wide brim hat--so dramatic and flattering. I look like a million bucks in this, and my face is well-protected.

I bought this hat for my husband when it was on sale. It came in smushed, but wow, it worked itself out to a perfect shape in about 3 days. My man loves it and he looks good working out in the yard in it. Hello afternoon delight!

This hat is ridiculously amazing! It's big and perfect! I was purposely seeking an extra large brim hat; I have been dying for a Jacquemus Bomba, but my pocketbook won't allow it. This hat fits the bill though. It's large and in charge and I love it! Can't wait to take it on all my tropical travels.

This is not a "denim" color. More like a faded dusty blue. The hat looks good right out of the bag, then after some wear (like 2 days) it starts to fall apart. I wore it on my trip to Mexico, and the tube/lining inside broke and started to stick out. I was using at the beach as a sun hat so I didn't mind. You get what you pay for!
