handmade hats with a vintage spin

To devote oneself to a single craft is—has to be—an endeavor borne out of true passion. And hats, it seems, are Nick Fouquet’s passion. He fell into the craft and now has a shop halfway between Santa Monica and Venice where he sells his one-of-a-kind, ready-to-wear hats and accessories. (He uses sustainably sourced 100% beaver fur felt for most of his pieces, meaning you can feel good about looking good.)

Fouquet’s shop doesn’t just have hats, although they are the main attraction. He also has shirts and accessories on offer, all of which mesh with his specific aesthetic. Fouquet’s lived and traveled around the world, so when you wear one of his hats, don’t be surprised if a stranger on the street stops you to ask, with a hint of knowing, “Where did you get that?”
