WILD BILL HAT W/ BESPOKE RIBBON

Regular price £225.00 Sale

The Wild Bill has been embellished with a bespoke Ribbon and Bow handcrafted in our London studio from high quality Silk offcuts, the type traditionally used for dressing gowns. 

The Saffron colour of this flamboyant felt hat calls to mind a process in antique Victorian hat making nicknamed ‘carroting’ after the orange colour it subsequently dyed the fur. The origins of the phrase 'Mad as a hatter' are also linked to this process. 

Inspired by the exaggerated proportions of the 10 gallon hats of the Wild West and named after the famous outlaw and showman, ‘Wild Bill’ Hickock. This Jago style features a large rounded crown which is further emphasised by the short brim.

Each hat has an interchangeable internal padded hat band to accommodate a range of head sizes. To ensure our oversized hat styles fit perfectly to your head shape, please select your desired size from the drop down menu.

All of our blocked felt hats are traditionally made in Luton, England from high quality Rabbit Felt Fur.

Height: 19cm  |  Depth: 33cm  |  Width: 30.5cm
