Hats off to Tom Smarte, their designer hats for men are pure class.
Let's face it. We've all got the random baseball cap acquired from some trip or another; the trilby or fedora from one too many fancy dress parties dressed as a gangster; the elaborate pirate's hat for very much the same reason; and perhaps the flat cap borrowed from dad/granddad so you looked the part for pub golf.
But rarely has the modern gent had sought out head-wear in the same fashion that our counterparts from the 1950s and before did. The fedora and bowler went into decline in the 60s and men's hairstyles never looked back. Fast forward to the here and now and we're glad to say that TOM SMARTEis offering GREAT BRITISH HATS with modern design set upon a heritage dating back to 1782.
Proud to be British, Tom Smarte designer hats represent the essence of traditional craftsmanship and great contemporary design coming out of the heart of London. From Savile Row to Hoxton, Tom Smarte’s English hats style travels well and is equally at home in Paris, Tokyo and New York. Using a variety of materials, Tom Smarte produces the highest quality felt hats, knitted hats and cashmere hats.
The tradition and skills developed by generations of Thomas Smartes has been revived in London by Allon Zloof. Allon stems from generations of designer hat makers. Having learnt the finer details of hat making while growing up, and with a lifetime of experience in the industry, Allon now brings to Tom Smarte his unerring creative eye, sensitivity to modern hat design and a driving passion to preserve the finest hat making skills and traditions.
