There is a reason why men of yester-year all wore hats. Batsakes is the perfect place to not only hear the reasons but experience yourself with a purchase (or several). Bring back men in hats!

Stuffy and over priced. Overall, they have interesting hats. Again, way overpriced. Go to the hat store on Ludlow Avenue in Clifton, they have great hats, 75% cheaper but the same quality.

This is the last place on earth I think you an get a custom hat made with the precision of Old World craftsmanship. There may be some old school folks out there, but this place is whole different level.
