⑥ Herbert Johnson
Herbert Johnson is a London firm of hatters and cap makers. Founded in 1889 at 45 New Bond Street, the business was bought by the London firm of Swaine Adeney Brigg in 1996.
Herbert Johnson is a subsidiary of the famed umbrella and bag maker Swaine Adeney Brigg, which makes the best of all types of military officers’ hats and primarily offers the highest specifications of custom-made services.
Herbert Johnson is custom-made, and there’s only one finished hat you can buy in the store. The Poet hat, for the movie Indiana Jones, of course, is also called Indy hat.I had tried on the hat, and it was a little strange, but a tall foreigner next to him was wearing a very nice look, and the foreigner was wearing a long dark brown trench coat, which made him look more handsome, and I was envious of it.
⑦ Optimo Hat
Optimo is a hat store in Chicago, USA, owned by Graham Thompson. The hat store was originally called Johnny’s Hat Shop, which is not part of the Thompson, because the original owner, Johnny Tyus, was physically ill and had no heir to take over the hat making skills. So Thompson not only learned the art from Tyus, He also took over the business and moved to Beverly, south of Chicago, a year later, and changed his name to Optimo.
Thompson has always been a blues fan, so Optimo has a lot of Trilby hats for blues singers, with short brims and a nice look.
⑧ Patey Hats
Patey’s history is complicated, and the official website doesn’t understand. Only known that one family from France, dating back to 1695, is dedicated to manufacturing high-hat hats, dome hats, military caps, various hunting hats, mainly jade to measure, and Patey is the supplier of Gurkha Slouch, a British defence department.
On the official website, you can only order the top hat, bowler hat, traditional riding hat and PROtector’s riding helmet, while others such as Fedora and Flat Cap can only be purchased at the store in Ilderton Road, London.
Wigens was founded in Sweden in 1906. The Wigens hat is iconic, mostly striped, and the (Newsboy Cap), made of plaid wool or cashmere fabri, so it c is very easy to recognize.
The Wigens hat is slightly different from the typical British flat-top hat, with an obvious cap tongue, thicker fabric and heavier colors.
⑩ Rachel Trevor-Morgan
Rachel Trevor-Morgan is a British milliner best known for the hats she creates for the Queen. In 2014, she was granted a Royal Warrant.
Trevor-Morgan began making hats for the Queen in 2006 – initially she was invited to create six sketches for review and then some designs were made. The first of her models was worn by the Queen at her 80th birthday church service at St Paul’s Cathedral. The Queen then chose another of the designer’s hats – a beige shot silk model – for her birthday lunch at the Mansion House – inspiring a Times journalist to note that Trevor-Morgan had now become: “a new recruit to a tight little band of royal headwear designers”.
Since 2006, she has been one of the Queen’s preferred milliners, creating some 60 hats (averaging ten a year) up to 2012. In 2014, Trevor-Morgan was awarded a Royal Warrant.
