Nick Fouquet Hat Co.

By garrett

I remember when Nick Fouquet started his hat operations in a underground garage in Venice, CA a couple of years ago. Its exciting to see Nick in his new space as he recently moved to his own flagship location at 1629 Abbot Kinney Blvd inside one of the spaces at "Left House" (A house sharing multiple retail stores).

Nick and his friend Rubin have a 100% hands on mentality and operation at their work studio/store on AK. They sell their amazing handcrafted creations to a number of musicians, celebrities, locals, friends and enthusiasts and personally make each hat by hand, just the two of them. It's a pleasure to see that this school of thought is still alive and well in Venice, California.  True craftsmen seem to be few and far between these days.
