    Some of you may be experiencing a strange wet sensation in your long johns during long afternoon walks – it’s nothing to be ashamed of, you’re just sweating. That’s because the seasonal climate changes are in the offing, and soon the dull grey skies of Autumn/Winter are going to be replaced with the aquamarine blue of Spring/Summer.  Your wardrobe needs to get lighter. Especially the upper shelf, where your collection of fine hats sit. Already we’ve applauded excellent leather Pork Pies and Fedoras, so today it’s the turn of something sensational and lightweight – a Trilby fashioned from finest cotton.

    It’s another corker from Jill Corbett, our favourite hat maker – she cuts and prepares her hats to your precise measurements. This one would look absolutely terrific if worn during an all-afternoon drink in a nice pub garden. Perhaps with an accompanying vest.

    As everyone knows, an outfit can’t be called an outfit until you’ve got a hat on. Even during the summer. Problem is, it’s hard to find a hat that goes with long colourful shorts, flippy-flopsies, and a yellow vest. Or is it? Already we’ve doffed a big invisible cap to numerous Fedoras and Baker Boy Caps, and today it’s the turn of another Pork Pie – namely a cotton canvas one, in the colour sage.

    With the summer just seconds away, it’s time to perfect your new look – which, obviously, means getting a new hat. We love hats. Already we’ve given a hysterical salute to various Pork Pies and Fedoras, and now it’s the turn of another Baker Boy Cap – this time in a gentlemanly leather.

    It’s another corker from our favourite hat maker, Jill Corbett – she cuts and prepares her hats to your exact measurements. Perched atop your head, this one would go best with a toothpick in your mouth, a switchblade in your back pocket, and a serious attitude problem. Beautiful.

    No outfit is complete without a hat. There, we said it. Even those strange kids in hooded tops know that – hence why the wealthier amongst them choose to wear baseball caps. Or balaclavas if it’s dark and they’re criming it up. Already, we’ve honoured some excellent Pork Pies and Trilbys, now it’s time for the evergreen of hats – the Fedora, here in a gorgeous chocolate brown.

    It’s another belter from Jill Corbett – she cuts and prepares her hats to your precise measurements. And no small amount of joy can be found in popping it on and pretending to be Brad Pitt in Snatch“do you like daaaags?”. Hilarious.

    Now that everyone appears to be kitted out in the same regulation skinny jeans and lumberjack shirts, or natty old slacks and polo shirts, it’s important to distinguish yourself from the crowd. And what better way than with an impressively chosen hat? We absolutely adore the things. We’ve already doffed a gigantic invisible bowler to some fantastic pork pies and caps, and today it’s the turn of the Corduroy Pork Pie – ideal for spring. It comes in a rich burgandy, the colour of fine red wine.

    Once you’ve been seduced by the raw power of hat wearing, you’ll know that no outfit will ever again be complete without a little something perched atop your head. Hats, quite simply, are brilliant. Already, we’ve doffed a gigantic invisible cap to the Battered Black Leather Pork Pie, the Tweed Baker Boy, the Brown Leather Trilby, and the Tan Suade Pork Pie. Now it’s the turn of the Green Leather Trilby – a hat that could be comfortably worn by either man or woman.

    Now that the Ozone Layer has been totally obliterated and icy cold winds are zipping in from the north, headgear has become an absolute must. This is great news, because we adore hats, and will from here-on-in be celebrating a new hat every single week!

    First up, give a big hand for the Battered Black Leather Pork Pie, which comes courtesy of new friend of the site, Jill Corbett – she cuts and prepares her hats to your precise measurements. Perched atop your head, it gives a gentleman the look of a wise guy with street smarts, or, indeed, Serpico. Absolutely brilliant.

  • Second hand bargain: A nice hat

    Looks brilliant, was quite cheap

    As ever, in this cold financial winter, we vigourously applaud anyone who can warm the cockles with a bargain. So don’t speed up when you’re passing your local second hand shop, do the opposite – slow down. Even go in, because once inside, you’ll find a world of cheap stuff, some of which is excellent. Great friend of the site, known to us as Bobby, found himself on the right side of a hat-buying super-find. “Normally I wouldn’t trust a second hand hat,” he admitted in a whisper, “but this one was too good to pass up, and I gave it a bit of a scrub.” So, spill the beans, how much? “It was two quid.”

    Excellent sticking-it-to-the-recession!
