Bailey Hats has been around since 1922. When we opened our first store in early 1980, people would come in asking for "Bailey". We knew brand names like Stetson and Kangol, but Bailey was new to us. We learned quickly. This was (and is) an old and venerable company with a loyal following. The archives at Bailey are filled with mid-20th Century photographs of Hollywood giants like George Raft, Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, etc. wearing their hats.
