Best Hat Store - 2011
Alternative Design Studio (also known as ADS Hats)
San Francisco, CA 94103
Sometimes you just need something fabulous for your thinker. Maybe it's a fedora. Maybe it's a vintage froufrou cap. Or maybe you aren't even sure what it is, you only know you want a hat and you want it now. ADS Hats is your spot. It has roll-up hats, brimmed hats, Bailey caps, and even a crochet novelty collection. If the hat you seek is inexplicably nonpresent, the staff will custom-make it for you. In addition to hats designed by locals — which are plentiful — ADS has a selection of designer headgear including creations by Katie Friedman and House of Nines.
