10th St & Broadway
Welcome to Tenth Street. We’re glad you found your way to our site, and we look forward to guiding you on your journey to find your perfect fit. Tenth Street, founded in 1921 by Jack Dorfman and Arthur Hyman as part of Dorfman Pacific, comes from humble beginnings. The Tenth Street name is taken from the original warehouse on 10th Street and Broadway in Oakland, California. Tenth Street remains an important part of the Northern California community almost 100 years later.
A Family Approach
Watching the decades and their cultural and sartorial changes swirl by, we’ve grown accustomed to making hats that blend vintage feel with modern sensibilities. Though our team has grown over the years, we remain a family-run organization. Our closely knit family is part of the reason we’ve been able to maintain relationships with expert craftsmen and cutting-edge designers to bring you quality products time and again.
Commitment to You
In our factories we still use rare hat-making machines that are nearly one-of-a-kind. It’s those types of special touches, as well as strong relationships with suppliers and creatives that have allowed us to make Tenth Street a unique experience. The company’s mission from day one was to build a headwear business with a strong commitment to you, our customer. Every new style, each different type of fabric we use is part of our plan to ensure you receive exactly what you’re looking for.
From functional and utilitarian origins, hats have wound their way through history to become the fashion statements they are today. Whether aiming for a vintage look or a casual day at the ballpark, a well worn hat can help make an outfit anything but ordinary. With manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Canada, Asia, Mexico, and Europe, you can be sure that your Tenth Street purchase combines a worldly touch, matched with local character.
