OLD HAT has two stores, one in Tokyo and one in Osaka. Old Hat is a sister store of the vintage store OLD HAL that is placed in London. Originally it dealt only vintage clothes but they opened a repair and order-made shoe store "OLD HAT Shoes Artisans" in Osaka in 2012. Takanobu Takai is in charge of the shoe making. He studied under Jason Amesbury in London. When he returned to Japan he continued training at a local shoe workshop and ended up becoming a supervisor at OLD HAT Shoes Artisans.
