Founded in 1921, as Dorfman Hat & Cap Company, they wanted to start a business in which they offered retailers quality headwear products.
Founded in 1921 by Jack Dorfman and Arthur Hyman, Dorfman Milano was born to support the growing headwear industry. The original formula was straightforward, Jack manufactured the hats and Arthur sold them. In the beginning, all hats and caps were crafted by hand from their first headquarters in Oakland, California. Today, Dorfman follows that legacy, representing one of the highest quality headwear brands available.
