THE HAT THAT STARTED IT ALL.
The Charlie (named after Founder Tania Eves’s oldest son) is an every day wear 100% wool wide brim fedora hat. If you’re “not a hat person” then the Charlie wide brim fedora is for you! We have redesigned the Charlie to include a few new features so we are clearing out the original design meaning you get a banger of a deal on our best selling hat! These Charlie’s are a 3 rating on the firmness scale meaning they are very structured and firm. They’ll soften with wear but you can speed up the process by steaming the crown (top)
One size fits all’ doesn’t sit well with us so our Charlie’s come with a 100% cotton size adjustable sweatband. Choose the size closest to your measurements and then adjust the sweatband for the perfect fit! See our size guide for measurements.
ABOUT ME & THE BRAVE
Our locally-designed and ethically-made clothing and accessories are pretty special, but Me & The Brave is so much more than just a fashion label. We’re a community. We’re proud to donate 5% of our monthly sales revenue to the Women’s Refuge ‘Gift a Safe Night’ programme. This programme offers women a safe space, hot meals, child care and other much-needed support. It’s our way of helping New Zealand’s most vulnerable women make brave decisions for themselves and their families. Since launching our first wide brim (The Charlie) back in 2018, we work with only the best certified suppliers who operate in safe, supportive and healthy conditions. Our products are designed by Tans here in Papamoa, and ethically made by skilled artisans in New Zealand, the US and China.
