Spent the afternoon with Steve from Whisler Civilian and got to the the hat making process first hand. Whisler Civilian is a local Philadelphia business with a workshop located in the Bok Building -- a historic vocational school recently reopened as a manufacturing. art and creative space in South Philadelphia.

Whisler Civilian’s wide brim felt hats are individually handcrafted out of fine rabbit fur felt using a traditional wood-blocking technique.
Every Whisler Civilian hat is hand-blocked, cut, and styled, meaning each is a true heirloom that will last and grow with the wearer for adventure after adventure, year after year.
