This was a much anticipated part of our recent trip to Nevada, such that when the shop was closed on our first visit, we returned on another day. We weren't disappointed, with both the experience of watching a hat made to order and the end product, which is now a valued possession. Take advantage of this opportunity if you can.

On a recent visit to Virginia city I had an exciting opportunity to purchase a specific hat I've wanted for years.
I had just retired 4 or 5 days before and I persuaded my wife to gift me this hat as an early Christmas gift as well as a retirement gift.
Watching to hat come to life drew quite the crowd and the outcome was incredible.
If you are looking for a quality hat to pass down to your Grandsons, this is the place to have it made.

Located on the main street of Virginia City in the back of a souvenir store is a fantastic chapelier - hatmaker. Pascal is from the French Alps and is as charming as he is talented. he makes vintage custom hats with an unusual sizing gadget. It's a form that sits on your hit to measure the exact dimensions for your personalized hat. It's a great experience and I highly recommend the ambiance, the experience of trying on Hoss's hat (of Bonanza fame) and the fantastic selection of women's hats. What a surprise to find an artisan of Pascal's level in Virginia City.

The owner smiled at me from his window and waved me in, which made me feel very welcome. This is an unique store, different than much of the honky tonk in VC, worth a visit, even if you don't want a hat.

You could not ask for a better deal on a terrific hat. About the same price as a mass produced Stetson, Pascal's hats actually fit and stay on in the Nevada winds. If you are thinking about another cowboy or gentleman's or ladies hat, you must see Pascal. Just to talk to him is great, and his hats will not disappoint.

Fitted and ordered a custom made "Drover" hat today with Pascal at the Hat Emporium. Fun walking around Virginia City. Great little shops, restaurants and bars! Enjoying a "Bloody Hogger", (bacon vodka and crumbled bacon) at the Palace Saloon.

Last year in July, Pascal, the hatmaker, created the perfect hat for my husband. His precision and skill were incredible. My husband wears his hat often and gets frequent compliments. We returned to Virginia City this year to have Pascal just do a little reshaping. Again, he was meticulous. We are so pleased. What an exceptional hatmaker!

Wow! Some really interesting custom hats to be had here. Buy one of the shelf or have a one of a kind made for you. Haven't seen any place like this in our travels. Friendly staff, fun (and serious) hats.
