As I was traveling through Pasadena today, I stopped in at World Hats. I love this store, though I don't get there often. I've usually just browsed there before, today I was on a mission. Now, I've come up with a dilemma - a quandary, if you will. I need to know - how can a man own a hat shop - arguably one of the best hat shops in Southern California - and know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT HATS?!?!?!?!?!? Good heavens, this guy couldn't answer a single question I had. I SHOWED him the current hat, said I wanted to replace it. "You must take it to the dry cleaner" he said. What??? What does that have to do with replacing it??? From then on, every question I asked was either ignored, or the answer was mumbled and incomprehensible. I had to find the right hat entirely on my own. How do you stay in business when you don't even know your own inventory??? I LOVE this hat, and I LOVE that store, but good heavens, can't someone who KNOWS what a "crush-able, wool felt fedora" is take over for this guy???

Amazing selection, priced well. Even had options when it came to pricing as there were us and imported versions of some of the hats I was looking at. I don't know what happened with some of the other reviewers here, but the proprietors were reasonably friendly, knowledgeable, and happy to sell my friend and I hats! Can't wait to get back AGAIN!

This is a great hat store, but the people who run it seem to know nothing about hats. Even so, if YOU know something about hats you can get some great deals here. The selection is outstanding and the prices more than fair...better than you can find online, in many cases. Why these folks are running a hat store is a great mystery, but hey...just go for the chapeaus.

Great place, With a Wide Selection! I'm definitely coming back.
I know a lot of people on here, seem to think the service is terrible...
That the people who run the place are not jumping up to kiss you...
But hay, I did come here to get laid or anything... I just came to buy
great hats! Enough said.

Cheers,
~ I Claudius
P.S The people here are actually swell!

Very good selection and some of the worst service I have ever experienced. Much of it may be explained away as an ESL issue. I believe the owners are Korean and don't speak English very well, still the attitude that pervades seems to be one of ambivalence. The customer feels like they are intruding and are a bother. It's really too bad, as I recommend the place a lot albeit with the caveat, "Go here for a good selection, but if you want service and a great fedora, go to Hollywood Hatters on Melrose where Sal, will help you find the perfect hat.

My family and I have bought hats from this store for a couple of years. In all that time, we have never recommended the store simply because of the help you get from the sales staff. What they lack in the ability to sell hats they make up for by being rude. This is a store you go to only when you can't find your hat anywhere else!

They had a lot of hats, but apperenly they don't want to sell any of them.

My wife and I were there for less than 15 minutes and already had a total of 6 hats that we put on the counter to buy, nice, expensive hats. My wife asked to try on a hat that was out of reach and the store owner started YELLING AT HER!

He told her that if she tried on too many hats she will just get confused. I said, "Excuse me?" And my wife said, "Don't you want me to buy the hats?" The man said, "If you don't know what you want, you never will!"

What? It was the most rude, strange shopping experience I've ever had. We walked out and bought nothing.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRAZY PLACE!

World Hats Mart has a great selection of a wide range of hats ranging from fredoras, to cowboy hats (the reason I went there) to novelty hats (pope hats, jester hats, cake hats...) with a good selection of sizes. However, the people in the store were very little help in helping me find the right size of hat, or of showing me a selection of hats that matched what I was looking for. After about 45 minutes of looking I finally did find the hat for me, but it was not due to any help from the sales people.

Overall, if you have a specific hat you're looking for, they are a good place to look, but don't expect any help.

PROS: Good selection
CONS: Bad sales assistance

This one is a keeper. They have all different types of hats here, cowboy hats, newsboy hats, baseball caps, everything! Even if you don't buy anything it is very interesting to browse around on a hot summer afternoon!
