Mark Mejia, owner and master hatter of Baron Hats in Burbank, Ca., took the time the other day to show me around his store and workshop. The shop is like a museum of film history (they’re located near Warner Brothers and Disney studios); they’ve supplied hats for many classic television shows and films – among them, Casablanca, The Sting, The Searchers, and the Cohen Brothers’ latest film, True Grit. This shop is one of a dying breed, producing beautiful handcrafted hats. If you are ever in Los Angeles and have the time, you must stop by this gem of a place – and maybe you’ll leave with a hat.
