On the east side of Wangfujing Street lies an old, famous hat store named Sheng Xifu. A time-honored brand in China, Sheng Xifu has opened for almost a century and has earned the nickname the King of Hats.

 

Sheng Xifu caps are famous for their use of quality choice materials, handmade features, fine craftsmanship, and excellent quality. Many leaders and foreign dignitaries have ordered hates from Sheng Xifu over the years.

 

Its hard to miss the shop when you walk in the area. A copper signboard hangs on the shop entrance, with its English name Sheng Xifu Hat Store engraved. In addition, six red lanterns help guide you inside.

 

The shop is comprised of two floors. As I looked around the first floor, I saw mainly regular hats. Plain mens hats, made of cotton, wool, or hemp, went for RMB 128. Womens hats had more designs and colors.

 

The second floor featured medium to high grade hats. For example, a hat made of rabbit fur cost RMB 680, while a hat made of otter skin cost RMB 2100. You may also find reproductions of hats worn by famous Chinese leaders here. The most popular one belonged to a hat worn by former Premier Zhou Enlai.
