Jack McConnell, aka “the King of the Milliners,” was one of the most exciting, creative hat makers of the 20th century. The son of a Tennessee farmer, he was working in radio when he asked a milliner friend to make a special hat as a gift for his mother. His friend turned him down, so he made his mom a gorgeous church hat himself, revealing his hidden talent. From those unexpected beginnings, he quickly rose to success in the 1940s and 50s, creating unique headgear for the Hollywood elite. Today, his vintage originals remain highly collectible (and very expensive). Lucky for us, his legacy lives on through a modern milliner that has found inspiration in McConnell’s timeless styles and meticulous handcrafting. End result: Browse our beautifully-embellished wide-brim hats, straw hats and cloches—some paired with gorgeous, can’t-go-wrong outfits!
