A great selection of quality hats that they will customize to suit your face and stature. Very helpful staff who really care. Quality materials are used so don’t expect a cheap hat

I didn't buy a Hat and now I regret it !!!
Mar 2019 • Friends
Casually dropped in on a rainy day. Was captivated by the quality and style of the hats... so much to learn about how they are made by hand, fitted and the materials.

I do have a question: if you buy a hat a which is custom made (the only way they come) and it is shipped out of AZ to you do you have to pay sales tax??

Awesome custom hat and service!

Super friendly, knowledgeable, and patient staff. If you’re a hat person, you owe it to yourself to stop by and at least get fitted for a hat. It’s an interesting process that not only gets your head size, but head shape as well! I was fitted for a hat in person, but I placed my order a few weeks later via email and they referenced my sizing info that they keep on file. The finished custom beaver-felt fedora hat was shipped to me a couple weeks later and it was perfect! Fit is perfect and the finish on the hat is buttery smooth.
Also- I really liked the layout of the store. There are a couple walls of shelves with a variety of hat styles and colors to try on.

The Best Hat I Ever Purchased
Apr 2018 • Solo
Watson's Hat Shop is a great business and a complete surprise. I went into the shop just hearing about the place and when I got there I was immensely impressed. The history behind the equipment, the craftmanship of the hats and the complete kindness and generosity were some of the best that I have ever seen at a place of business. Eric Watson really knows his stuff and created the perfect hat for me. I will definitely be going back there at some point to either get a new hat or have mine serviced. Great experience here!

Art, History, and Protection - All On Your Head
Dec 2017 • Solo
A truly gifted hat maker, using vintage equipment and traditional methods, but with his own sense of style and form. Add to that, Eric's hats are quite practical, effectively protecting against sun and weather. With his materials and craftsmanship, I am confident these hats will last my lifetime and that of my kids, no matter the adventures on which I take them.

This guy is good. Any style from cowboy to derby, he can make it for you. Small one man shop, (but family helps) he can do it. A master of hats.

Great hats, great service
Jul 2017 • Solo
Just bought my third hat from Eric, a Western beaver. Eric is a perfectionist and it shows in the quality of his hats and their fit. Getting a good fit on my head is a challenge, but Eric takes the time and has the know-how to make it work. Definitely recommend Watson's if you're in the market for a custom hat that will last you a long, long time.
