Ordering a Bespoke Hat. A Unique Online Experience
Discover the timeless style of our hand crafted hats in each hat collection. Every Madge & Me creation is a bespoke hat, handmade with quality materials and to your specifications.
Not everyone can visit our studio so we decided to bring the experience online. You create your hat in the ordering process. Each item in the collection is a starting point for your dialogue with the milliner who then crafts and designs a unique creation fitted to you, based on your specifications.
While the fabric and color palette is known, Laurie, the artisan, and creator of Madge and Me will do the finishing flourishes based in part on your selections as well as ribbon and “whimsy” she has on hand. Many of these items are vintage treasures acquired in Bay Area flea markets or sourced during her world travels. It is these final touches that breathe life into your creation and ensure your hat is truly unique and made just for you!
Ladies’ or Gents' Finish:
A ladies’ finished hat comes with hand-sewn Petersham ribbon crown band and sweatband and other specified details.
A gents finish felt hat is made with a heavier weight felt and is complimented with Grosgrain ribbon, a leather sweatband, and other specified details. A gents' straw hat comes with a cotton twill sweatband and other specified details.
All hats come in a collapsible folding hat box. If you would like a classic hard, round hat box for travel or storage, please add one to your cart for an additional $30.00 fee.
You are welcome to come to the Madge & Me studio, get measured by Laurie, and meet Madge.
