The process

The creation of your bespoke Oliver Lewis piece take us a good amount of skills and care, yet for you, it is straightforward.

It starts with an appointment with Rich – in person in New York or via (video) call. During our meeting we get you measured and discuss your preferences in material, color, crown shape, brim width, as well as likings for finishes and details. There is a variety of choice in hat bodies (wool, rabbit, beaver, velour lends), bands, fabrics and unique accessories such as brooches. If wished for, we can also work with your own pieces or source specific ones you are looking for. 

A custom-made hat starts at $500. Based on your decisions (materials, details) we can make you an individual offer. When you're ready to move forward in the hat-making process, we require the payment to get started. 

Made-to-order pieces may take up to four weeks, depending of the scope of work and sourcing. Rush fee applicable for shorter deadlines.
