Our History

 

Since 2007, Falcon Park Hattery has been using the finest available vintage and custom designed hat making equipment along with traditional, fully made-by-hand techniques. Founder Parker Melvin has made custom fedoras for clients in virtually every state in the US and several countries abroad, including Canada, the U.K., Germany, the Nethelands, and Japan. In 2015, Parker invited David Privitera to join the team and introduced an entirely new line, the Falcon Park "Classic."

 

 

Our Expertise

 

 

Ours are among a precious few fully hand crafted fedoras available in the world today. We hand pick, hand block, hand pounce, and hand shape every felt body using techniques that date back to the golden age of hat making from the early 20th century.

 

 

 

Our Commitment

 

 

We guarantee our work 100% for as long as you own a Falcon Park fedora, and you may expect nothing but the most exceptional personal attention and customer service available. Our hatters, Parker & David, began making hats out of a desire to share their own personal passion for owning something truly one-of-a-kind and special with other gentlemen of taste.
