Family owned and operated in New Orleans, LA

The South's largest Hat Store

We were established in 1894 by Sam H. Meyer in the first block of St. Charles Avenue, in Downtown New Orleans. Originally called Meyer's Hat Box, the small shop prospered over the years by selling Stetson hats and men's ties. In the 1920s, Andrew Meyer, Sam's son, started working with him in the store.

In 1937, Meyer The Hatter moved to a new location down the block at 136 St. Charles Avenue.
