    A Good Experience at Alexander Hats (Charlotte, NC)

    Good afternoon, folks. I'm from Atlanta and new to this forum. I saw this post and wanted to bump it to make sure the North Carolina folks are aware of Alexander Hats in Charlotte.

    Last week, I happened to be in Charlotte for business and went to Alexander Hats during a break (I had Google-d "Hats in Charlotte" and found this place. I had a great experience there and ended up ordering a hat from Keith (the owner). The store sells hats by Borsalino, Selentino, Bailey, Stetson, Dobbs - pretty much whatever you may need. It is not a huge shop, but if they don't have the hat you're looking for, they can order it for you. I beleive they also do blocking and cleaning, and even do some custom made hats. Keith seems like an honest-to-goodness "hat guy" hatter that has been in the business for a long time (he mentioned he got started at Worth & Worth in NYC) - and there aren't too many of those guys left. It's a plus that he's a nice guy.

    No connection to the place - just a first-time visitor who had a really good experience and a great chat with another "hat guy."

    I'm sure Keith won't mind listing the address, so here it is:

    4401 E. Independence Blvd.
    Charlotte, NC 28205
    www.alexanderhats.com

    All the best,

    Chad

    Frijoli,

    Agreed - you can't brag on the Web site that much, but I think Keith makes up for the Web site with a really good attitude.

    Hope you find something on your visit; please let us know how it goes.

    All the best,

    Chad
