Kentucky Derby hats are a tradition dating back over 100 years. Dee’s hasn’t been around quite that long, but we’ve made our share of hats. In recent years we’ve expanded our offerings to include more designer hats, fascinators, 1000’s of yards of ribbon and trim, extra staff, a feather bar, and over 1000 unadorned hats for Dee’s designers to create a perfect Oaks or Derby hat for you.
Kentucky Derby hat season starts in January every year when our buyers head to Manhattan to find the latest styles and colors to bring back to the store. The season ends with you wearing a Dee’s creation on a sunny day in May. Ok, we can’t guarantee a sunny day, but we can promise you a fabulous custom-designed hat guaranteed to wow your friends!
Store Hours: Monday – Friday 10 AM – 8 PM, Saturday 10 AM – 6 PM, Sunday 12:30 PM – 5 PM (expanded hours on Sundays in April, Noon – 6PM.)
