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.

What a fabulous experience to sit with Pasquale and watch him make a hat for us!! Our group had a total of 6 hats made for those in our family, and I had one made for me on my last trip. Super high quality that will last for a lifetime

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.

This store is a leather lovers haven. The wife picked up a leather hat while here. The store clerk was very friendly and helpful. Good place to shop.
