In 1903, from their humble Manchester premises, they turned out a mere 25-dozen hats per week. Growing steadily, by the 1940’s they were making 5,000-dozen hats per week, even finding time to contribute towards the war effort by hand-crafting flying helmets for the RAF and ‘special equipment’ for commando frogmen.

When demand for their fur felt hats began to dwindle in the 1950s, they could ‘see the writing on the wall’ and already had a viable alternative ready when the market collapsed altogether.

Their fabric variants soon took off, winning favour both with the avant-garde and ‘man in the street’ alike.

Today they are still concentrating on tomorrow, forever introducing new twists on ever-popular models, introducing next-generation fabrics, textures, and colours, always inventing, always progressing.
