CELEBRITY HAT SIZES

 
          
          
 
 

Long before there were Smart Phones and PDA's, there was Eddy Baron's Famous “Little Black Book”: his handwritten ledger containing the hat sizes of hundreds of a virtual Who’s Who of the Entertainment Industry's biggest and most legendary stars!  Eddy Baron was the founder of Baron Hats for virtually the beginning of Hollywood and a legend in his own right. Lucky for us, he kept hyper-scrupulous notes in this priceless notebook. You'll find everyone from Judy Garland to Madonna, from Clayton Moore to Tom Petty all chronicled in Baron's wonderful archive in his meticulous handwriting.

"The Book" as it has become reverently referred to by Hollywood Industry insiders contains the most complete listing of celebrity hat sizes in the world! 

So scroll on down to view the books contents, some even include some special additional notes made by Eddy. Or else enter your favorite star's name in our special “Celebrity Hat Sizes Search Engine” above and see if they're listed. 

We take great pleasure in opening up our massive Hollywood History archives, for the first time, to the general public, and we hope you enjoy this unique insight into Hollywood lore! Come back often, since there’s much lore in store!

For an even more detailed look into Baron California Hat's History, check out our “Historical Production Notes” section!  

We hope you enjoy this unique insight into Hollywood lore.
