Care of Your Hat

Your hat will be sent to you in a box specially designed to ensure it arrives in the same pristine condition it left us. If you have one of our Fur Felts and will not be wearing it for a week or two, we suggest gently brushing it before putting it back in the box. A gentle brush with a little steam will also revive them. Please follow the care instructions for our fabric hats carefully, some may be dry cleaned by specialist dry cleaning companies and the washable ones with a mild detergent, preferably by hand or using the gentlest of programs on the machine.

Do not use a tumble dryer, just gently squeeze to remove most of the water and then let it dry naturally away from any source of heat.

Our Logo

Our logo is based on the Supermarine Seaplane S6B, winner of the 1931 Schneider Trophy Air Race. The plane was designed by Reginald G Mitchell, who designed several world-beating seaplanes and the famous Supermarine Spitfire. It was a development of his earlier S4, which had won the 1925 Schneider Trophy air race. The S6B was powered by a supercharged Rolls-Royce 1900 hp engine, and piloted by J N Boothman, it won the 1931 Schneider Trophy at an average speed of 340 mph, and then two weeks later, became the fastest vehicle on earth, setting an absolute speed record of 407.5 mph.

It was chosen because we felt it represented a symbol of British achievement and ingenuity.
