Men Wearing Vintage Hats

Vintage Hats Make It To Sydney

A FEDORA LOUNGE FOLLOWER and daily wearer of hats, NEIL WATT is an enthusiast with an impressive knowledge around men’s hat manufacturing and sartorial elegance.

Recently moving to Sydney and down sizing into a new home he sadly is parting with some of his treasures.
BOYLAN HEADWEAR is open again on Saturdays in Newtown for autumn /winter 2012 selling part of the Neil Watt collection with hats from the 1930’s thru to the 1980’s including the iconic brands of BORSALINO, STETSON, KNOX and DOBBS BROTHERS. Also on sale are contemporary AKUBRA fur felt street hats in seasonal colours and a range of winter caps in felt and oilskin.  I also sell Great Gatsby style hats as featured on Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby.

So come on down to witness the subtle changes in men’s hat styles over the years, chat with Neil or Rosie and you are bound to find a hat that suits you.
While preparing the vintage hats for sale, I took some footage of Neil sharing his enthusiasm for his collection.

Check these out on YouTube.
