Top 10 classic hats of all time

After about a year or two of making hats for Hattingdon, Mrs Farrell created a basic hat silhouette and began designing for it. It came to be called the “classic hat.” They were immediately popular, building up a large and dedicated fanbase that is still going strong today, more than a dozen years later.

As voted by the Hattingdon Classic Hat Club, in reverse order, here are their top ten favourite classic hats of all time.

The Hattingdon Classic Hat Club also voted (without our asking them — this is a rowdy crowd!) on their favourite Classic Hat for Christmas.

They have done a good job.

Most popular hats U thru Z

by Hattingdon Staff

Hello, and welcome back to the final chapter of the most popular Hattingdon hats beginning with the letters A thru Z. We have arrived at the final grouping.

Hattingdon has no hats named with the letter U. She has a hat called “Viveca.” Viveca is however a classic hat. By the way, the classic hats — which many of you love and treasure — will be having a countdown of their very own soon. Look for the voting procedure in your inbox.

Back to our finale. Nor does Hattingdon has any hats beginning with letter X, but she does have hats beginning with the letters W, Y and Z. The final winning hats are . . . .

We hope Hattingdon and her many hats have given you a “Hatful of Smile”‘.

Star Hattingdon was the most popular Hattingdon horse for many years, taking over Curtis’ reign …. for awhile.

We only have U through Z to go. You know there are Hattingdon horses beginning with the letter Z. What about U, V, W, X and Y? Viveca comes to mind for the letter V. The ones left will have little competition. Or will they? Hmmm.

An A to Z of most popular hats

by Hattingdon Staff

A Hattingdon® fan suggested we do an A to Z of Hattingdon’s most popular hats. That’s a lot of hats for one post, so we are dividing them into groups. A thru E, F thru J. . . and so forth.

We will post the winners Monday through Friday beginning on 11th October.

We hope you are looking forward to seeing the winning hats as much as we are. We have no idea who they are. Well, except for one. Long time Hattingdon fans already know. He makes the top of all lists. And he should.

Curtis was created in Washington D.C. during the Congressional Christmas recess in December 2007. He remains the #1 selling design.

See you Monday.
