Collection: Tilley Hats

Tilley Endurables were founded by Alex Tilley and they manufacture hard wearing hats and clothing for the outdoors and travel. Tired of hats that blew off his head, sank when they fell into the water or shrunk when they got wet, Alex Tilley decided to oversee the creation of his own ideal sailing hat. After several months of research and the assistance from a sail maker, he designed and made the ideal hat for himself. When other sailors asked for one, he made and sold them one as a hobby. The great success of the Tilley Hat led to the formation of Tilley Endurables, makers of Tilley Hats and travel clothing, designed and manufactured in Canada and enjoyed around the world.
