Sized Up is our weekly feature that’ll help you find clothing in your size in cities around the world. You won’t see the same old mall stores here – we focus on smaller, custom shops and boutiques that are off the beaten path. If you know of a unique place to shop for men’s clothing in extended sizes, let us know and we’ll talk about it here.

J.J. Hat Center

It’s difficult to beat 101 years of experience. That’s how long J.J. Hat Center has been fitting customers with high quality hats and caps in a variety of styles. As New York’s oldest hat shop, you’re not going to find the same low quality baseball caps you can get at the corner Walgreen’s – J.J’s deals in high end, classic hats and caps – from the pork pie to the fedora to the Greek fiddler, you’ll find hats with distinct style and a nearly unmatched level of quality.

If you’re just graduating to your first proper cap, the staff at J.J. Hat Center will help you find the best looking hat for your head. They’ll suggest the best kind of cap for you in the style you’re looking for. If you’re the type of guy who has trouble finding a hat that fits your head, this is the place for you. Not only will they put you in a hat that fits, but they’ll shape the hat to your head for a perfect fit. If you have an abnormally large head, they can even fill special orders, ensuring you get a hat that fits. Try to get that from the place in the mall.

J.J. Hat Center

J.J. Hat Center prices run the spectrum depending upon the type of hat you’re looking for. You’ll find caps starting at $30, pork pies for $150 and up, and some of their best fedoras available for more than $2000. The prices for items on their website generally run from $25 to $350. If you’re looking for a high quality hat that’s made to last, make J.J. Hat Center one of your stops when you’re in New York City.

    Adding... the LA hairstylist who's quoted in the article saying "hair styles don't have a weight limit" - love him! I wish he'd speak to more women's stylists. How many times have I been told by stylists, and read about other fat women being told, "short hair doesn't look good on a 'round face.'" AKA, stylist code for "you're too fat for short hair." This kind of b.s. needs to stop, which is why I wish more stylists had the attitude of the guy quoted here.
