Just a couple of doors back on St Charles (from the Rubenstein's on Canal ) Street is the Meyer the Hatter shop. During a recent New Orleans visit, we stopped in to shop. And we were rewarded with the very best of old time service selection and location. We were assisted by the patriarch of the business. After a brief... More

We walked in with the intent of getting one hat for the heat. Left with 3 - thanks to Michael. Glad we stopped there. I love my hat.

Stopped by Meyer the Hatter while in New Orleans. It was like a throw back to a different era. 88 yr old Sam Meyer was full of stories, quick with a joke and very helpful with selecting a hat for my husband. It is a fun place to pop in and look around, or better yet buy yourself an awesome... More

Discovered this beautiful hat store whilst staying at the Sheraton just around the corner. Wow, I haven't seen a hat store like this for years and didn't know they still existed as shops like this one disappeared in England many years ago unfortunately.. A wonderful selection in every size, shape and colour, what a choice! Service was so polite and... More

Saw something on the web about this shop & had to check it out. Reminds me of the old hat shop my Dad used to frequent when I was growing up. Great selection & the Meyer family is friendly and very helpful. Had some great conversation with three generations of them. Found a hat I really liked but they didn't... More

I had already got this in my sights for a visit and I was not disappointed. The very helpful Sam Meyer (I think it was him) talked me through the various styles, prices, suggestions - nothing was too much trouble. I got the impression his level of service would have been the same for the cheapest or most expensive purchase... More
