I have been witnessing the trend in men’s hat wearing grow over the last few years and as a hat maker I am delighted to see people on the streets of Sydney wearing hats again.
It is a global trend and as more men rediscover the benefits of the weather protection and dress styling that hats offer, the trend will continue to grow.
Strand Hatters were recently in the media with an article in the Sydney Morning Herald about the return of hat wearing as a fashion trend for younger men. See the link below
Strand Hatter’s has been a oasis for the hat lover for years and many times I have called on them to immediately solve a hat dilema for me with my work in the stage and screen industries.
It is a tribute to good business that this specialty shop has survived in a climate where shops that dedicate their merchandise to a few items are now limited.
Big apparel companies selling top to toe clothing options under the one roof are todays’ one stop shopping trend.
Hats off to Robert and Nathan at Strand Hatter’s, offering this specialty hat fitting, styling and sales service.
Recently I visited Strand Hatters with Steven Lewis, a journalist and podcaster from the blog Open Crown.
In the spirit of promoting the wearing of hats,we worked with the Strand Hatter’s staff and a hat client to style a hat that suited this young man. We selected a range of hats to find the ones that best suited his personality and physical features. Below is the podcast of this session.
