Our vision for opening a men's hat store started in 1990, however, early inspirations for hats began with my father, Arthur Gene Duke, Sr. and uncles who were well groomed men. They were all men of distinction.
This vision was the catalyst to open Duke & Duke Men's Dress Hats in 1999 with the goal to become a premier men's dress hat destination in San Antonio, Texas. We wanted to ensure our hats were distinctive in style, quality, offering brands not readily available in other haberdasheries, which is why it was important to showcase our hats in custom designed cabinets that would further exemplify the quality of our brands.
In 2001, we became Duke & Duke Men's Dress Hats and Fine Apparel, which broadened our direction to include timeless fashions for men. We are now able to carry a larger inventory of only the best name brands such as Stetson, Kangol, Biltmore, Dobbs, Borsalino, Dorfman Pacific, Scala, Big Al and more.
Now we want to inspire a new generation of hat artisans by offering product styles from designers who seek to collaborate innovative with
quality as the foundation of a new product idea.
At Duke & Duke we continually seek to evolve to the next level by bridging the young and the old with creative designers that push our own personnel to continue to grow with the latest of products. In turn, we pride ourselves on educating both our existing and new customers to keep them abreast of new items that will enhance their own personal style by adding to their current fashion mix.
