As the name calls it, the street was famous for the hats, caps that were made here. Fashion has evolved from the caliphas (a spherical or cylindrical fur coat with fur, expensive by the boyars) to the Communist rule. By 1945 it was inconceivable to go out on the street with his head uncovered, it was a standard of classification on a social scale, as Mr. Nicolae Zdirca, the last remaining lifetime hat on the Şepcari street, states in an interview given to Eugen Istodor for the book Lipscani – Travel Guide for Tourists). He can boast that he made the hats for Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej, Sergiu Nicolaescu, Birlic and Beligan.
