Nick Fouquet

Best Men’s Custom Hats, August 2014

Model-milliner Nick Fouquet creates dome toppers for discriminating gents (and A-list stars like Madonna). Fouquet has always been fascinated by the accessory and believes in its transformative power over outfits. Here are some stats that speak to his talent: Pharrell’s Grammy-performance toque charted at 5 inches in height. The wait time to see a finished hat is 8 weeks. It takes 20 steps to make each one-of-a-kind chapeau. The starting price for his designs is $525.
