Berkeley Hat Company is a really tiny store, but it's good for visiting, especially if you feel like seeing one of the most amazing selections of hats you've ever seen in your life. I never had much need for any of the hats in there in all of the many times I went, but each time, it was a lot of fun. They not only had regular every day hats but fun costume-y hats as well. Definitely worth a trip if you're in the area.

One of my favourite villains that appeared in the old Batman TV Series was the Mad Hatter. His real name was Jervis Tetch, and was inspired by the lunacy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to commit crimes. He used his mind-control technology (that popped out of his large hat) to bend people to his will.
You're probably Mad as well if you leave Berkeley Hat without finding something to grace your noggin. And Holy Halloween! - What a Selection! There are Stylish, Proper, Whimsical, Fedoras, Berets, and even Tilley Hats. And most important for me, they have a nice selection of hats that fit my almost Size 8 head.
My only caution is that this is Berkeley. So if you're not willing to wade through the egalitarian and "dense" displays, and want to pay for the privilege of shopping in more of a Salon atmosphere, try Goorin Brothers or similar. I like both, but I found the service and my own satisfaction in bending to this haberdashery's hypnosis to be much more enjoyable here.
