Harlem's Heaven Hat Boutique
2538 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd.
(At West 147 Street)
open Tuesday through Saturday
12pm to 6pm.
Accepts all major credit cards.

Harlem's Heaven designs hats of only the highest quality. We specialize in shipping top quality hats around the world.

We have designed custom hats for clients over the years and have made a small number of Collections available to clients not able to visit our shop in New York. This means you (and our other exclusive clientele around the globe) can buy our world-renowned hats. You can stay up with the latest fashions even if you can't make it to New York.

Evetta, our head designer, went to the highly reputable Fashion Institute of Technology. Since we only offer styles that are consistent with the hottest fashion trends, she regularly updates each Collection with new hats. Our hats have been featured in a variety of newspapers and magazines including the New York Times, Crain’s NY, and the New York Daily News. We have also been featured on Television including Europe’s “Shop the World” fashion show with David Emanuel. We also design custom hats and special orders are welcome

Images of Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, and Nat King Cole aptly adorn B. Oyama Homme, a Harlem men's boutique that sells tailor-cut suits; an assortment of shirts; and haberdashery items such as ties, pocket squares, gloves, cuff links, and suspenders. "I love to see a well-dressed man," beams the proprietor, Bernard Oyama.

His background, experience, passion, and current location have all converged at quite an opportune time. He concurs: "I didn't plan it, but the timing is perfect." Not only is Harlem enjoying a resurgence, but so is the suit. Oyama is often regaled with stories by older Harlemites of how being well appointed was at one time more than a fashion statement: it was proper etiquette. It was once considered inappropriate for a man to walk the streets without a hat. Oyama intends to be an integral part of once again raising the standard.
