Art Fawcett

Master Hatter Art Fawcett has been crafting beautiful bespoke hats for clients all over the world. Art can create a "one of a kind" hat just for you!

Custom Fit

Every hat is custom fit for each of our clients. We will send a conformer to you, enabling us to achieve a perfect fit every time.

Hand Sewn

Every VS Custom Hat is hand finished using only the finest ribbon, liners and sweatbands - vintage quality!

Hand Blocked

All our custom hats are hand formed on vintage wooden hat blocks, creating the same classic crown shapes and styles of the Golden Era!

  • “Arrived yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier with it! It’s just the picture of simplicity, which you correctly surmised is to my taste. And how the ribbon so closely compliments the chocolate felt is just perfect: not an exact match nor at the opposite extreme to draw attention to it alone. Just perfect. I’ll tell you, I’m already lustfully eyeing the Anazasi ... that ribbon is out of this world! Thank you so much! Logan”
    Thanks Art!
