by Robert Waight in April of 1996, the little western fashion "tienda"
in the heart of downtown Fredericksburg has pushed itself to the
cutting edge of the fashion forward industry of custom hats,
boots, and other creative "cosas."
The "little train that could" was merely a
young man's "dream" in the fall of 1995 when Robert struggled
with the conception of an idea to create a retail environment
full of unique product like no other in the world. Most would
call that "bold talk" for a young individual with no proven
"ownership" track record in the western retail industry. But Mr.
Waight's apprenticeship, while in college, with an Austin-based
western store, along with his travels through Europe and a
self-imposed "will to succeed" would allow him to transcend his
ideas into a type of market the "modern consumer" has never laid
Directed towards no certain gender,
Headquarters Hats prides itself, not only on the ability to
provide intoxicating product, but its genuine concern to fulfill
each customer's desires that walks in the door or visits us
online. A self-described artist, Mr. Waight creates a "look"
with each type of hat that lends itself to the strengths of the
customer at hand. Facial features (jaw structure), frame, and
shoulder broadness are but a few of the physical traits that
Robert juggles as he "positions" his customer with that unique
individual look that will have them wearing "their" hat with
confidence (like they know they look good in it) NOT with a
"self-conscious" feeling about having something on their head. A
Headquarters' customer will experience a "burning" curiosity for
"newly" designed styles by Robert of such
name brand products as Lucchese boots, Stetson and Resistol
hats, Jon Hart luggage, and the Stella Luna Concho belt line.
The two have lent their imagination to create high-end, but yet
affordable, wares that will distinguish their clientele from
