Easy to wear

We've designed the Charlie to be worn effortlessly with any outfit. From the colours to the size and fit it's been designed with you in mind.

Easy to pair neutral colours, structured yet comfortable and a statement piece without being too bold. This is certainly not the 'meat dress' of hats, it'll have you standing out for all the right reasons not the wrong ones.

"The hat is an absolute DREAM. The colours, the details, the excellent quality. I'd been looking at it online for ages before I finally brought it, hesitating as I'm not usually a fashion statement/big hat kind of person - but this is now one of my go to's in my wardrobe"


Customise the fit

Our Charlie's are now even better with the addition of a 100% cotton size adjustable sweatband. Choose the size closest to your measurements and then adjust the sweatband for the perfect fit!

"Insanely comfortable.

My black Charlie hat has pretty much become permanently fixed to my noggin for the past year now! Not only is it superb quality but is insanely comfortable and is a perfect addition to ANY outfit. 

I have also purchased the Charlie Black for my daughter the Straw hat for summer - both of which we adore.
I couldn’t recommended these gorgeous products more highly.
