Founded in 1976, Hatman Jack’s has become the third-largest hat store in the nation, and a cornerstone of the historic Delano neighborhood in Wichita, Kansas. Founder and Wichita native Jack Kellogg has been making hats for nearly four decades, and is well known for his expertise, craftsmanship, and customer service. Jack and his staff are devoted to continuing the traditional hatters’ craft, using vintage tools to properly form and fit hats to each customers’ unique face and head shape.
The store stocks a huge selection of ready-made hats from nearly 100 brands in almost every style, for every head- even large sizes! Men’s, ladies’, and children’s hats from dressy to casual, ranch to boardroom, summer to winter- Hatman Jack’s has it all, along with a selection of accessories such as wallets, scarves, gloves, canes, vests, suspenders, Wild Rags, and handbags. Nearly the entire inventory changes with the seasons, so be sure to stop by regularly to see what’s new.
Jack and his staff are true hatters, and this is what truly sets us apart from most modern hat shops. We can turn a rough fur felt hood into a fully custom hat; we can customize off-the-rack hats to your specifications; we can add hat bands, ribbon bands and bindings, stampede strings, feathers… We can take a plain hat and add enough glamour to take it to the Kentucky Derby and we can make a brand new hat to look like it’s been worn hard on the trail for years. We also offer hat shaping, cleaning, repair, and restoration services for hats you already own.
You may have seen some of Hatman Jack’s work on the heads of celebrities such as B.B. King, Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard, Alan Jackson, Marty Stewart, Buck Taylor, Mickey Mantle, Luciano Pavarotti, and our own local RiverFest celebrity, Windwagon Smith. Our hats have also been showcased in movies and television shows such as The Quick and the Dead, The Secret Life of Bees,The Road to Valhalla, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and more.
