Meet my new favourite hat. Up until last year I really overlooked the humble hat, I wasn’t sure they suited me, or where I would wear them. In the last twelve months I’ve amassed quite a collection and this wonder from Laird London
has captured my heart.

If, like myself you aren’t yet familiar with Laird then here’s a bit about them in their own words;
Alex and Zofia Torun-Shaw are the founding team behind Laird London. We are proud of our products and our company and endeavour to offer friendly, prompt, great service and wonderful products. We hope you’ll feel the same about us too. If you want to send us any comments, we welcome them.
Our hat and cap shop sells gentleman’s style headwear – that is to say all it is unisex, and it’s just the shapes and styles we refer to in general. (Clearly our headwear looks fabulous on women; we do also stock a selection just for ladies.) Traditional English caps and hats but with a more approachable, modern twist, are sold alongside accessories such as cufflinks, vintage silk scarves, umbrellas and watches.
We are an unstuffy, friendly place to buy quality and affordable headwear, particularly tweed caps. These were once the domain of the older gentleman, the country set and the upper classes – but they have become fashionable once more due to actors like Brad Pitt wearing them, and certain Hollywood films, eg, Gangs of New York. Make your individual statement also with a stylish hat or cap.
Although originally aimed at men, Laird is looking to spread the word that ladies can wear their hats too (and they have a ladies section too)
The hats come in a wide range of styles, anything from a Fedora to a Panama hat. They are also available in a range of sizes to ensure the perfect fit- the website has a handy measuring guide.
I’m so in love with this hat. The quality and craftsmanship that has gone in to it is clear and it fits like a dream. I can’t wait for the weather to cool off a little so I can wear it,
for now I’m sticking it on whenever I can and pottering around the house like an idiot.
You wouldn’t expect anything less, right?
If you are in London why not pop along to a Laird
store? For those not so lucky then at least you can order online!
