Hat Club opened its first Los Angeles store, its largest retail footprint on the West Coast. Located in the Melrose shopping district, the store opened on August 12, marking the retailer’s second-largest location in the U.S. behind its New York flagship store.

Hat Club features Los Angeles-inspired designs only sold in the Melrose store. The 900-square-foot retail space showcases its exclusive hats, classics and the latest trends.

“Everyone at Hat Club could not be more excited to make Los Angeles the home of our West Coast Flagship location,” said Austin LaBoda, director of marketing at Hat Club. “We’ve been able to connect with our community with pop-up events in Los Angeles in recent years, but the ability to establish a home here is truly special. Our goal is to be the go-to destination for hat culture in SoCal, and with our wide range of exclusive options and LA-specific designs, our customers now have a new destination to help complement their unique style.

“California has long been one of our top markets and it’s no secret why. Los Angeles is a tremendous, supportive community with a long tradition of supporting local sports teams, unique and trendy styles, and the culture through fashion,” LaBoda continued. “Our Melrose location furthers our commitment to giving Los Angeles hat enthusiasts access to designs they can’t get anywhere else, and we can’t wait to show them what we have in store.”
