The Tenth Street name is taken from the original warehouse on 10th Street and Broadway in Oakland, California.
Tenth Street remains an important part of the Northern California community almost 100 years later.
Watching the decades and their cultural and sartorial changes swirl by, Tenth Street Hats has grown accustomed to making hats that blend vintage feels with modern sensibilities. The team remains a family-run organization to this day. The closely-knit family is part of the reason Tenth Street has been able to maintain relationships with expert craftsmen and cutting-edge designers to deliver quality products time and again.
In their factories, they still use rare hat-making machines that are nearly one-of-a-kind. It’s those types of special touches, as well as strong relationships with suppliers and creatives that have allowed Tenth Street to create a unique experience. The company’s mission from day one was to build a headwear business with a strong commitment to the customer. Every new style, each different type of fabric is used as a part of their plan to ensure you receive exactly the look to elevate a wardrobe, especially with winter hats.
From functional and utilitarian origins, hats have wound their way through history to become the fashion statements they are today. Whether aiming for a vintage look or a casual day at the ballpark, a well-worn hat can help make an outfit anything but ordinary. With manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Canada, Asia, Mexico, and Europe, you can be sure that your Tenth Street purchase combines a worldly touch, matched with local character.
The product development team, full of skilled milliners, fashion followers, and a myriad of others, travel across the globe in search of new materials while fostering relationships with existing suppliers. Like hats, a community is only as strong as the fibers that hold it together.
