About Us

Samuel’s Hats was founded by Samuel (Sam) Castro in New York City in 1988. For over 25 years Sam built a tremendous following and established extremely strong relationships with the top designers around the world. After a long and successful career Sam sold the business and retired in 2015.

In May of 2018 the business was sold to two business partners in Richmond, VA. They were drawn to the business due to the longevity of the brand which has now been in existence more than 30 years! The duo intends to reestablish Samuel’s Hats as a leader in providing high-end hats created by the world’s top designers. To that end they have brought Sam out of retirement and Sam will consult for the business for the foreseeable future. Designers have been delighted to hear this news, and we know Sam’s long-standing customers will be happy to hear this news, as well!

Our current offerings include such designers as Giovannio, Whittall and Shon, Whittall & Shon,  just to name a few. We will be adding more as time goes on.
