    Wonderful typography. Some images are BEST in black and white.

    How wonderful! We really don't make enough effort with hats anymore…I mean, who would even consider using a hat box nowadays? And yet it's just a sign of respect for the quality of your clothes.
    Such a fun display!

    the boxes are almost as beautiful as the hats themselves.

    Very nice hats, I have owned a straw Dobb's fedora with a snap brim for 10 years now. I wear it at picnics in the summer mostly, but its such a great thing.. One of many things lost of the way of a gentlemen hats are.

    When I was a little girl, a man wouldn't consider going out of the house without a hat on. These photos are beautiful and very nostalgic.

    So beautiful. So nostalgic, it makes be want to have to wear a hat again, just to leave the house.

    Felt hats! Wide, medium or stingy brims! Thank you the plug of civililty. Don't you just love those 1940-50 photos where masses of men were in hats? Love it!

    everything calls for perfection. the typography, the color scheme and the tastfull display.

    I love the graphics on the boxes. Real "old school" – like a real haberdashery should be. This ain't Macy's men's department.

    I have a bunch of wonderful Hilditch & Keys ties – veddy British. I love Savile Row style.

    Isn't this kind of packaging luxurious and beautiful…you go into a shop and just see boxes…Then you ask for a certain hat and they have it! I know a shop like this in Seville!

    Got to say – I bought a rolling panama from Bates' in Jermyn street, and very quickly it deteriorated to the point that I'm scared to roll it again. I know how to look after hats – always rolled it the right way – but the straw has not been well conditioned, and the hat is too dry and brittle.

    a well made hat is so beautiful, sometimes its the downside of mass production that we forget the real beauty of hand crafted items
