Our Story

We make full custom, 100% handmade, one-of-a-kind hats, using the finest materials available in order to craft, for you, a hat that will last 'til death. 

Zito Hat Co. was founded in 2016 by owner, skateboarder, motorcycle enthusiast, husband and hatter, Austin Zito, in the little beach town of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California. Currently, and proudly based in Austin, Texas - Austin grew up in San Diego and for a number of years lived in San Francisco and  Los Angeles, drawing inspiration from each place to cultivate his own personal style of hat making. He has a deep love and interest for all things that serve a basic function with beautiful design. Influenced by skateboarding, motorcycles, and the vastly different places he's lived, Austin has set out to create timeless, functional, one-of-a-kind hats with a nod towards the history of hat making and you.
