Christy's London Hats
Christy's London Hats
At Christys’ London, craft is key.
Since its founding in 1773, Miller Christy’s passion for impeccable quality and skilled craftsmanship has passed through generations of hatmakers, safeguarding Christys’ red and gold insignia as a symbol synonymous with fine traditionally crafted hats. Historic. Iconic. Trailblazing. All the hats are handcrafted in the Oxfordshire factory.
A timeless icon, the Christys' Classic Fedora has truly stood the test of time. Whilst there are many variations the shape has been refined over decades and continues to adorn stylish heads everywhere. In the USA the Fedora has become a generic term for the fuller brimmed felt hat with dented crown. Whilst Trilby tends to denote its British cousin, purists sometimes draw a distinction between the two with the Fedora sporting a broader brim snapped down at the front. The look became popular following the staging of the French play ‘Fedora’ written in 1882 for the well-known actress Sarah Bernhardt who wore this new hat style. In the early 20th Century hat took on a more masculine form, crossed the gender divide and earned a reputation as a prohibition Gangster or G-Man’s hat – a suave look with a hint of danger that helped to secure its popularity. This is the look of the Christys’ Classic Fedora
