A few classics on display.

Shady Brady began producing hats in 1976 under the direction of John Brady. Beginning with the introduction of their signature Shady Brady California hat. No other hat company distressed their raffia straw hoods the way Shady Brady did. Their unique designs combine laid back California surf style, urban cowboy, and classic western to make an iconic, uniquely American hat. Fabricated here in the United States (unlike most hats), they have been seen on numerous celebrities over the years including Jon Bon Jovi, Julia Roberts, Michael Pheiffer, and Jessica Simpson.

In 2017 John Brady passed away and sold the company to The Hattery, and we intend to carry on his proud legacy while adding a few subtle touches of our own.
