Thank you for all of the support I have been given over the years. I decided to retire earlier this year at the end of the year and have stopped taking orders for custom hats in my Signature line, with my liner being my signature. I intend to work until all orders to date are completed. So as to accommodate all who would like to order a hat after 9/5/2019 they will be made by my associate David Gibson and will be using the VS liner instead of mine. The quality will be equal in materials and after working with me for the last 5 years the workmanship will be at the highest level so please, feel free to order.
Whew!!!! Winter is almost over and we are starting to work on summer straws for the season. The orders Milans are coming in so late March I’ll be dying the wheat straw for this seasons colors. I don’t know what colors we are going to do yet so it will be a surprise to all of us. I will get picks up as soon as possible.
Now for the really exciting news (well, exciting to me anyway). I have received two (2) of the finest CHICHILLA hat bodies I’ve ever had in dress weight. The hand on the raw body alone is indescribable, I SO can’t wait to make one to feel the final finish. I only have one color, Silverbelly , and I am having to ask for more than my Legacy felt for each hat. If interested, please just reach out and we’ll talk.
It’s been almost a year in our new diggs and things couldn’t be going better. The new website is working well, 2018 is right around the corner, and I have an optimistic attitude for the new year. I hope everyone enjoys Success and Happiness in the coming year.
May you and yours be blessed
Here we are, end of June and the start of a new website. Those that have followed us for some time will notice that most of the info is the same but in a different format. We are also incorporating a new line of “Off the rack” hats that are made here but carry the VS logo rather than my Signature logo. Oh, I will continue to make hats but under my “Signature” line. As we have expanded I realized the need to be able to include other staff in the making so we have developed the VS Custom hat line. These hats will be a collaborative effort whereas the Signature line will be made only by my hands. There will be a distinct price reduction for the VS line vs the Signature line
This has been a year of change so why stop now. Introducing the new website will update us into the world of online commerce rather than just informational as the last site. We have expanded to include features like “Client Wall of Fame” where we will be adding pictures of clients actually wearing our hats as they become available. We are also adding a new “VS” line that will be available for sale for instant gratification. Adding to the site will be Ladies hats both Straw and felt that will be for immediate purchase. Please drop in when you can to see it all happen
In the mean time
