Town Talk Headwear (Louisville, KY, USA) first opened its doors in 1919 as a family owned company with five employees and a desire to manufacture the highest quality headwear in America.  We are one of the longest-lasting businesses in our industry.

Current Owner and CEO Wayne Joplin, Sr. officially entered the business in 1959, and later purchased 100% of the company in 1989.  Since that time, all of his children, some of their spouses, and a few fresh new minds have helped Town Talk Headwear grow into the company that exists today.

Throughout the years, Town Talk Headwear has produced headwear and apparel for Little League Baseball, military fatigue caps for the US Army during times of national crisis, many popular and famous names and brands of the athletic and corporate world, and most of today’s popular golf resorts and pro shops.  We are proud that throughout the world, the Town Talk Headwear name remains synonymous with the very best in custom embroidered apparel.

In an economic atmosphere where products manufactured in the United States cannot favorably compete with products made overseas, many companies have abandoned the very culture and ethics that made our country what it is today, with only profitability in mind.  In an environment where the meaning and significance of the label “Made in America” is almost forgotten, we take great pride in our products and our impressive record of nearly 100 years of American-made heritage.

Today, the family’s third generation proudly continues the Town Talk Headwear "highest quality" tradition, as our business model expands to the new network frontiers of e-commerce, social medial, and online availability, and client outreach grows beyond the world of athletics.

Our catalog currently includes over 150 different styles of Men’s, Women’s, Junior and Plus-Sized products, many of which are still "Made in the USA."


OUR GOAL:

The Town Talk Headwear mission is to maintain our position as the industry leader of high quality, innovative, design headwear.

This will be achieved through laser-like focus on the core areas of the Town Talk Headwear business: flawless production, innovative design, timely customer service, informative marketing and creative mapping.

High-quality work, produced and manufactured inside our own walls.
