“ In addition to being a Tilley fan I’m also a huge fan of LEGO and LEGOLAND. When I won the 2008 Junior Master Model Builder build-off, part of my prize was a LEGO portrait built by a LEGO Master Model Builder. I chose to have my portrait done wearing my trademark Tilley.”

    • The fabrics 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.
    • You still need SPF 30 sunscreen and sunglasses with UV filters! Children especially need the UV filters in their sunglasses as non-filtering glasses will increase the size of their pupils, allowing even more of the damaging UV rays to enter. This often causes cataracts and retinal problems later in life and has happened in my (Alex Tilley's) own family.
    • Please don't pick the "picks" on the Raffia Hats! "Picks" in the Raffia braid may appear over time as the Hat is worn. These "picks" are natural and should not be trimmed. Trimming the braid or trimming threads too close to the braid can cause the braid or stitching to unravel.


    • The Hat can be spot-cleaned with a soft dampened cloth but not washed. At the front of the hat there is a removable Hydrofil® forehead sweatband that wicks moisture away to keep you cool. The removable sweatband can be hand washed in warm water and soap and air-dried.
    • In the event of creases, re-shape the hat by softly using your hands. Stubborn creases can be dealt with using steam. Leave it in the bathroom while you take a shower and then re-shape by hand. Another option is to hold it over a teakettle, allowing the steam to penetrate. Re-shape by hand and let dry. Be careful with the steam - it's very hot!

    stylish, but beware of stiching splits

    I own 3 tilley hats and love them. I love the the look of this hat better than any other. Wore it at the beach for a few days and noticed a split in the stitching in the forehead portion of the hat. Happened within a month. Just called and told that it was not guaranteed. I wish they'd stand behind this hat like the others and replace it.

    Love Love Love This Hat!

    This hat is super broken in and comfy right out of the box. It's like your favorite old straw cowboy hat meets a fun fedora. The brim folds up and down nicely, so it can look like a proper sunhat, a fedora, or cowboy-hatty. I picture myself sailing the Galapagos in this (which I will be doing this summer!). I'm kind of a fashionista, and I see myself wearing this hat on many occasions, especially while traveling or at the beach. Love it!!!

    In a word- Distinctive!!

    This hat is classy and well as stylish. The hat is very comfortable and enjoyable to wear. It's very versatile and by that I mean you can wear it out as dress hat or casual outings . I highly recommended this Great hat- You will be surprise and not disappointed about this quality hat.

World's Best?


    To protect you from the sun and rain, Tilleys fit lower than other hats. This also tends to give one a rather dashing appearance! For your comfort, they're held on by gravity, not painful pressure on your forehead. On a hot muggy day, you'll especially appreciate this!

    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.

    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.

    Yes, this Hat has been treated with a water resistant finish, but it is no sou’wester! The finish will probably give you enough protection to have time to find shelter, but raffia is not meant for a steady rain. We do, however, realize that Mother Nature can be unpredictable, so here are some tips on how to re-shape your Raffia Hat if it does get caught in that downpour! Raffia is pliable, so while it is still wet, re-shape the crown with your hands and stuff the crown with tissue, a towel or place it over a bowl. Smooth out the brim, and allow it to air-dry. Once dry, if you still have some creases use steam, or a damp cloth to smooth over. Try not to crush, or stuff your wet raffia Hat into a bag, etc. It will dry looking crushed! If that happens, simply wet the Hat again with a damp cloth, and follow the directions above.

    Soft and comfortable, it picks up sweat from your forehead and wicks it away to your temple area where it evaporates. The removable sweatband pieces can be hand washed in warm water and soap and air-dried.

    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.

    There are 8 of these in the Secret Pocket. You'll have fun with them; they can even get you into trouble, if you wish.

    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.
