    Fun way to experience the Puerto Rican culture and not have to spend an arm and a leg. I mean you can spend an arm and a leg but you don't have to when choosing the perfect adornment for your head. My...  more »

    This place was everything I read about. I'm 22 and I don't know much about hats but the staff made me feel comfortable and they were very helpful. I was able to find exactly what I wanted. They even helped me get a hat for a friend back home by judging his head size from a picture and even giving him an adjuster just in case it didn't fit right. They offered to have it sent back if he wasn't pleased. Customer service was through the roof!! With no other customers in the store, my custom hat took about 30 minutes to to be ready for me to walk out the door with it on. Highly recommend. October 2016
