Our top 9
We know we have a lot to choose from and it can be a little overwhelming. And really, if we're honest, each of us has more than 9 favorites, but we had to put some kind of limit on ourselves - after all, listing everything in the store wouldn't make things any easier for you. So, we each chose nine of our current favorites - from hats and caps to scarves, jewelry, and skincare - to help you get started. We hope you find your favorites too. And as always, if you have questions about our products, drop us aline. We're here to help.
Not sure where to start?
Whether you're looking for a basic black hat or the perfect panama hat for both style and sun protection, we want you to find the best hat for you. We're constantly adding more resources and informational videos to help you better understand the world of hats and we do a weekly live segment every Tuesday at 3:00 eastern on Instagram where we field your questions.
Drove over two hours and crossed state lines just to browse in-store; BRIM did not disappoint... I will make the pilgrimage again and again even to just catch the good vibes this place exudes.
These people know hats. Hat etiquette. Hat styles... Ways to wear a hat. Casual hat vs formal... Funeral hat vs black tie hat... Helpful. Kind. Stylish.
While Brim might be labeled a hat store, they offer so much more. It's literally an experience in itself to have such a wide selection of quality but even more so to have people that will go above and beyond to help you style an outfit or coordinate accessories.
I’ve bought numerous hats from Brim... I can’t say enough good things about them and plan on being a customer for many many years.
I love this store. The selection is huge from top hats to berets and everything in between. They have sizes for all size craniums. The staff is super friendly and love spending time picking out accessories.

Your local hat store
With thousands of hats in stock, visiting in person is well worth the trip. We encourage those who can to visit our brick and mortar store and try on our wide selection of womens hats, mens hats, and gender-neutral hats. We offer everything from fedoras and pork pies to fascinators and cloches, from dress hats to outdoor hats, as well as the midwest's best selection of caps (including newsboys, flat caps, driving caps, ivy hats, and everything in-between).
We carry a wide range of brands including well-known names like Stetson, Dobbs, and Bailey, luxury millinery brands including Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute and Romer Millinery, and hard-to-find European hatters.
Our team will help you find the best hats for your face shape and personal style. And if you can't shop with us in person but want that personal shopping experience, drop us a line to set up a video call.

Be Brimstagram Famous!
2:00 to 6:00 pm
It's that time again - Customer Portrait Day!
We're hosting Portrait Day with our favorite photographer, Aaron Paschal of AP2 Photography. This is your chance to become Instagram famous (or at least Brimstagram famous).
As always, this is a free event. All you have to do is show up and wear a hat (we wouldn't be mad if you showed up and bought a hat or two. It happens to the best of us when we're confronted with too many good choices!).
Just a few days after the event, you'll get access to the digital photos to share as you please or you can purchase prints of your portraits from Aaron (we especially love his canvas prints!).We'll have snacks and maybe some champagne and definitely fizzy water.
Bring your friends, bring your grandma, bring your dog!
