In December 1886, Manuel Azevedo Rua, a former wine producer from the north of Portugal, decided to open this traditional made-to-order hat shop. Thanks to a loan and some advice from his uncle, a priest – ‘always practice a fixed price’ – the store is still going strong, selling handmade hats for all occasions. Top, high, bowler or traditional, even hats for priests, any style goes.
