Last time I stopped in to see Nick Fouquet he was making his amazing hats in a parking garage underneath a now vacant gym on Abbot Kinney. Nick has since emerged from his subterranean days to have a prominent storefront on the surface of Abbot Kinney where he makes and sells his handmade hats. I stopped in late one evening while he made some finishing touches to my new hat and watched him turn a shapeless piece of beaver felt into a beautiful handmade hat. It is a rare pleasure to watch someone invest themselves fully into their work and as I watched Nick’s sure hands as they worked over fabric and machine I knew I was seeing something rare indeed.
