Cha Cha's Newman hat is truly special - the black & white combination is classic chic.

The crown of this stylish straw hat is blocked on a vintage pillbox block that features an asymmetrical tip. We use white parasisal for the crown, and pair it with a wide black sisol brim. It is trimmed with a black silk abaca bow, a long pheasant tail, and a white parasisal self-bow at the back.

This hat features many detailed millinery techniques, which gives it a stunning vintage look. Silk abaca is our new favorite millinery material, as it has a lovely sheen and makes beautiful bows. Pheasant tails curl like no other feather.

This hat is perfect for your next horse racing event, like the Kentucky Derby, a wedding or any other special occasion where you want to turn heads.

Custom colors are available. Visit Cha Cha's custom hats page to book an appointment in our NYC hat shop. 

As a special gift to all of our customers, your hat will be shipped in a Cha Cha's House hat box, perfect for storing your new hat!

Custom Made vs. Made to Order

  • Custom Made

    Custom made hats are created with the client for a special occasion or holiday, horse racing events or just because. In this case we ask that you make an appointment to visit the studio either in person or virtually. We will discuss your needs, choose materials and trims and begin building your custom hat. If you are trying to match an outfit we ask that you provide a swatch. Prices for custom hats start at $650. Please visit the Custom Hats page for more information.

    We look forward to collaborating with you on your hat journey. 

  • Made to Order

    All hats on our website are made to order. Once you click buy we begin working on your hat. We order your materials and start gathering trims. You may notice slight variations in trim. This is due to availability, dye lot changes and of course feathers are each unique. You may notice something extra on your hat. Sometimes we get inspired and add an extra feather or a vintage pin that seems to fit just right on your hat. Especially if you are a repeat client and we have gotten to know your style. 

    Choosing your hat size is very important so we are sure to make a hat that will fit you well. Please visit the hat sizing guide for more information and tips on measuring your head if you are unsure of your head size.
