I'm sure you'll
enjoy your new Hat!
Like a Rolls-Royce, it's rather special, so let me tell you a bit about it.
Hat was conceived in frustration and born of necessity. As a corporate art
dealer and consultant I had become, over the years, rather 'picky'
quality, and I couldn't find a hat that quite met my standards - or my
(a 31' mahogany, brass, teak, varnish and fiberglass Brandelmayr-designed
sloop). A proper sailing hat had to float, stay on, be unshrinkable, last
indefinitely, and be attractive. In January 1980, I decided to have one
not only for myself, but for other sailors. Fortunately, I knew nothing

sail-maker, and then I oversaw its manufacture by a local hat maker. By
some prototypes were ready. My family and I tested them on a marvelous

I managed to wrap the anchor line tightly around the propeller shaft...)
Now don't get the impression that the
Hat is just for sailors! It is equally at home in the desert, in the
in the garden, as well as on the golf course, by a trout stream or whilst
strolling through London in the rain. Tilley Hats are issued to Canadian
when they go to war or on peace-keeping missions. --Alex
