Here is an Offer From My friend Rod Keenan, Milliner extraordinaire....
Rod Keenan New York Announces their first ever Online Archive Sale
Sale starts April 1st!!
From his millinery studio in the heart of Harlem, Rod Keenan produces men’s hats in innovative and fashion forward styles. Keenan produces his designs in the time-honored couture tradition, combining his modern vision with handcrafted skills which emphasize detailed construction and use of fine and unusual materials.
Keenan studied fashion in Paris at Parsons School of Design before returning to New York where he received his millinery degree from The Fashion Institute of Technology. After honing his skills with apprenticeships at leading milliners Lola Ehrlich, Victoria DiNardo and Woody Shelp, Keenan set up his own studio nine years ago.
Keenan produces two lines each year: straw hats are designed for Spring and felted-fur hats sell in the Fall. Keenan’s hats are available in select stores around the world.

Find your hat size
Simply have a friend take a tape measure, and measure your head where you want the crown of your hat to rest. This is usually about an inch above your the top of your ear, parallel to the floor. While you can do this yourself, the measure will be more accurate if you have someone do it for you. Please take note that if you like your hats a bit looser or tighter, then you may want to choose your size accordingly.
