Let's dive into the enchanting allure of the "Amanda" hat from Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute, a woman-owned millinery in NYC that takes pride in handcrafted elegance. This hat isn't just an accessory; it's a statement piece, meticulously made-to-order, ensuring each one carries a unique touch of personal craftsmanship.

The "Amanda" is thoughtfully named after singer-songwriter and fiddle player Amanda Shires, whose spirit encapsulates the essence of style and sensuality. Crafted with a gambler-style crown, this green hat is a chic alternative to the traditional fedora, instantly elevating your hat collection with its distinctive silhouette.

But the charm doesn't stop at the shape. The "Amanda" boasts a harmony of textures with its matching grosgrain and supple lambskin trim, adding a layer of sophistication. The crowning glory is the peacock sword feather—a favorite among fashion connoisseurs—that adds an exotic and eye-catching flair.

This gambler hat is constructed from 230-gram western weight wool felt, chosen for its durability and ability to maintain the flat brim's crispness, ensuring that it won't flop but rather frame your face with precision. Inside, you'll find a satin liner that whispers luxury and comfort against your skin.

Whether you're stepping out for a casual meet-up or a sophisticated soirée, the "Amanda" promises to complement your ensemble with an air of confidence and a whisper of mystery. It's not just a hat; it's a personal trademark made with the care and attention that only Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute can offer.

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.
