Tenth Street Hats, a California Company, founded in 1921 by Jack Dorfman and Arthur Hyman, as part of Dorfman Pacific, are, by admission, of humble beginnings. The Tenth Street name is taken from the original warehouse on 10th Street and Broadway in Oakland, California, It remains a thriving art of the community nearly 100 years later.

PHUKET - the hand-woven wide brim keeps the sun off your face, while the bright pom trim and herringbone sweatband keeps you looking vibrant.
AMIENS - the floppy, wide-brimmed hat with a round crown hat and vibrantly painted wool is crushable and portable, perfect for bouncing around the festival.
NAMASTE - this one was made for stuntin’ in the sun: There’s a braided leather tail, leather binding and a peacock feather.

I received a Brisbaine Hat from Tenth Street. A wide 4 ½ inch, brim, American made handwoven, with Ecuadorian panama straw hat. It is lovely and functional, the ecru colored straw makes this a go to for any outdoor occasion.

The one size styling works for most. This style doesn’t have size adjustments even as the page display has size guide and hat size charts. Some of the offerings are only one size and until one receive the hat it can be impossible to tell if the hat fits and one can wear it with the panache intended.
