Lacey Classic

Good morning, and happy Monday.

It is a bit chilly and gray where we are. Regardless if it is rain or shine, here is a classic hat to brighten every day. Vivian named the hat Lacey.

Color Matters writes:

“Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other color.

It’s the color of happiness, and optimism, of enlightenment and creativity, sunshine and spring.”

See you again soon.

Dee Dee Classic

Vivian created a brand new classic hat for Hattingdon. She named the design Dee Dee. It has a definite equestrian flair, and very chic (if we do say so ourselves).

Equestrian style will always be a classic design tradition.

“In many ways the world of the horse constitutes the epitome of social decorum, not only in the age of chivalry . . . but in our own time as well, when forms of dress traditionally associated with equestrian activity . . . are considered appropriately stylish for those who have never sat upon a horse.” — Man and the Horse: An Illustrated History of Equestrian Apparel, Mackay-Smith, Druesdow and Ryder (1984).

Hattingdon wears a hat in the “classic” silhouette. The dome is striped in the popular Christmas colours of green, red and yellow. The brim is in red, as are the ‘nosebobs’. Hattingdon holds a candy cane in her mouth that matches the hat’s stripes and colours. Or is it the other way around? Hmmm. Never mind!

Deidre Classic

Greetings and salutations on this Classic Hat Monday. Today we have a fabulous classic hat for you, called Deidre.

The Deidre classic hat is a black hat with a striking red hatband. The hat’s dome and brim features a line of white houndstooth on them. Coordinating red ‘nosebobs’ complete the look.

By the way, we are often asked how we came up with the word ‘nosebobs’. Easy. We modeled it on earrings being called ‘earbobs’, a term used in the Old South of the United States for earrings or eardrops.

The classic hat

The classic hat is very, very popular and has been from the day it was launched in 2009. There are still many Hattingdon fans who prefer the classic hat to any other hats that she wears. How did it come about?

After a year or two of making a wide variety of hats for Hattingdon, Vivian created a basic hat silhouette with a round dome and medium wide brim. Then she started designing for it, and it ultimately became a series with a big following. She named it the “classic hat.”

The classic hat became popular right away, and enjoys a dedicated fanbase that is still going strong today, more than a dozen years later.
