Welcome to The Hat Chronicles! We’re the #1 place to go online to learn all about hats. Our hat blog is loaded with ways for you to match up your favorite hats in the movies to hats in real life, learn about the design and history of hats and learn the dos and don’ts of hat buying and maintenance.

The Hat Chronicles is part of Hats Plus, an online hat retailer headquartered at its warehouse in Boulder, Colorado. As an extension, The Hat Chronicles will also keep you up to date on all of the latest hat fashions and designs. Equally important, this blog will provide you with the in-store experience most other online retailers do not give.

Hats Plus has been in business since 1987, and we credit our success, even in this economy, to excellent customer service. The goal of the Chronicles is to share our wealth of knowledge and experience to help foster a love of hats and provide you with entertaining stories and information to help you make the best decision when you purchase a hat from us.

The physical store was a legendary family-owned business in Chicago. Our customers included everyone from basketball legend Michael Jordan to movie legend Michael Caine. We supply countless musicians and more than a dozen theater and opera companies with hats. Hats Plus was named 2009 Hat Retailer of the Year by the Headwear Association. Our vast inventory is comprised of more than 600 models of hats and more than 30,000 hats in stock. That includes brands such as Stetson, Kangol, Borsalino, Dobbs, Biltmore, Bailey and many, many others. The store closed as of 02/17/2018, we look forward to continuing with you online.
