“I’ve been told my Tilley makes me look like Hemingway. It’s the beard, I guess. I wear it during my daily three-mile walk through the woods and fields. And as an investigative journalist and author, I’ve traveled around the world and into three war zones – Palestine during Defensive Shield, the second Intifada, Iraq with Coalition forces, and southern Sudan and Darfur.”

- We hand-sew each Hat using very strong thread; all seams are lock-stitched so they won't unravel. All Hats are made with such care and dedication that one is as good as another.

HERE'S WHY TILLEY HATS ARE ACKNOWLEDGED 'THE BEST IN THE WORLD.'
APPEARANCE AND COMFORT:
The downward slope of the brim, both front and back, is intentional: the slope protects your forehead and the back of your neck from wind and snow as much as possible. The slope looks rather dashing, doesn't it?
For your comfort, they're held on by gravity, not painful pressure on your forehead.
Your Hat is guaranteed for life (yours, mine or its) not to wear out or fall apart. We're delighted to think that yours may be passed on to the next generation!
INSURED AGAINST LOSS:
With your Hat, you'll be provided with "The Straight-Shooter's Statement of Loss of a Tilley Hat" insurance policy. The insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible, and is not issued by Lloyds.
We understand the anguish of losing this reliable companion, or of having your dog terminally gnaw it. Should that happen, we'll replace your late, lamented Tilley at half the current catalogue price.
EXCELLENT SUN PROTECTION:
The fabric of all Tilley Hats have been certified to block 98 percent of harmful UVA/UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given.
TUCKAWAY EAR WARMERS?:
They neatly tuckaway inside the Hat, ready to be flipped down in cold and windy conditions.
REPELS RAIN AND SNOW:
The fabric has been treated for rain and snow repellency.
FOR HEAT AND HARD KNOCKS:
Inside the secret pocket in the crown of the Hat is a thin layer of closed-cell insulating foam. Heat rises, and the foam stores some of it. This dense foam also softens accidental blows to the noggin. From time to time people tell us how the peculiar qualities of their Tilley Hats have probably saved their lives!
4-PAGE OWNER'S MANUAL:
I think you'll find it a good read. It's available in either English or French.
HYDROFIL® ANTI-SWEAT BAND:
Soft and comfortable, it picks up sweat from your forehead and wicks it away to your temple area where it evaporates.
FOR YOUR CONSTANT COMFORT:
Inside the Hat, you'll see at the back a removable Size-Equalization Device held in by Velcro®. Its purpose is to permit you to maintain the same comfortable size regardless of the ear warmers, or forehead warmer, being up or down.
Inside the crown is a good-sized pocket sealed with Velcro®. In it, carry your I.D., hotel key, $10 bill (in your case, a $20), plus 50¢ for an emergency phone call.
Most hat makers make 4 or 5 sizes; we make 13, and even individual Hats beyond that size range when necessary.
As a matter of principle, no one shall be deprived of the pleasure and privileges of Tilley Hat ownership simply because of an uncommon head size.
BUT WHAT MAY BE MOST WONDERFUL OF ALL?
Those who wear Tilleys usually have innate good taste, creative minds and uncommon intelligence. Everybody knows that! And the Hats serve to identify such people to each other - immediately.
Because of these exceptional yet shared traits, virtually always, especially in foreign countries, Tilley wearers greet each other. Friendships have been formed because of the Hat, and that can be the nicest thing of all.
