Located in Times Square, not far from the Makins Hat Factory. For my money, that's the relevant detail. The hat is pure delight. Baby blue braid with a big, round crown and contrast cream colored braided trim (the 1 1/4 inch stingy brim is contrast colored cream on the underside). Tight pinch front. Made in NYC, not far from the Knickerbocker, over wooden blocks using live steam.
