Buy a hat and become part of history. When I asked the Bell Hop at the Royal Soonest Hotel where I could purchase a good hat, he sent me to Meyer The Hatter. Only a couple blocks away, Meyer The Hatter is a four-generation hat store that is amazingly famous. You'll be amazed at the stars that have visited this... More

Meyer is one of the last real hatters in America. It's a family owned business that began in 1892. They have pretty much every style of hat and cap ever manufactured. It's a place where the staff (all members of patriarch Sam Meyer's family) take great care to ensure you have the right size, style and color for you. I'm... More

I have waaaay too many hats, and several from Meyer. You will not find a better selection of hats of just about any sort that you may dream up. The customer attention by the folks here is flawless. I am sitting at my desk writing this wearing my most recent Akubra purchase made during my visit a couple of weeks... More

If you're visiting New Orleans any time between April and October, you'd be wise to wear a reliable, comfortable hat. I packed one, but my husband didn't -- and he soon regretted it. Fortunately, TripAdvisor told us about Meyer the Hatter. The staff is highly professional and their selection is mind boggling. Hubby was able to purchase a beautifully-made lightweight... More

While in New Orleans we walked by Meyer The Hatter 5 times a day on our way to & from the French Quarter. I was fascinated by the window display but also by the fact they close at 5:45 each day. Five-forty-five! Not 5:30 or 6:00. That was reason enough to go in. I went in for a $20 fishing... More

As a hat guy for most of my life (since I was a little boy) this was an early must stop on our trip to New Orleans during Easter break. Walking in I was immediately in heaven, and I was still looking around when my wife pulled me over to meet Mr. Sam Meyer, who is still working there 5... More

Outstanding selection of mens and womens hats. I wear hats. I wear them all seasons. It was wonderful to see an excellent selection of styles and sizes. We bought 2! This is a must visit if in New Orleans. Or order one online.

What a great hat shop. No frill, but all hats were top quality. Prices were very reasonable. Customer service was outstanding, explains why they've been in business since 1894!! Michael was great in helping my husband find the exact hat he was looking for. Can't wait to return and get myself a new hat.

There I was walking down the road, minding my own business, when I pass this shop, real old world style, like you used to get in London. So as a purchaser of hats I decided to investigate further, and I was not disappointed, fantastic selection. I came out after a while with a new hat, at a much cheaper price... More
