Christy's Hats of London

Thursday, 11 August 2011
I've received so many positive feedbacks from friends and strangers alike each time I wear my hats out. Little L announced to me earlier today that my outfit just didn't look good enough without my trilby. Uncensored brutal truth from the mouth of a babe. I was browsing at my favorite shop when I came across a new range of hats from a brand I've never heard of - Christy's London. The workmanship is impeccable. I was astonished to find out that these hats are all handmade in Oxfordshire and cost a mere £30. That's right, folks. They cost far less than my Jigsaw hats which admittedly look great but is nowhere as luxurious or well made as the hats from Christy's. What's even more thrilling is that I've finally found a range of hats in various designs that actually fit my tiny head.

Upon googling the brand, I found out that Christy's has in fact, been in existence since 1773. They're also the largest hatmaker in the world. They have been supplying hats to the Royal family since 1850s when Prince Albert started wearing their company top hats. These days, they claim that their hats have been seen on celebrities from Kate Moss to Justin Timberlake.

    AA, I find it hard to make up my mind because they're so many to choose from.

    Sog19b, I was lucky enough to see a few designs in person and the workmanship is impressive.
