Classic in styling. Practical in design. Engineered to fend off the elements.
This fur felt fedora is luxurious yet practical. In keeping with Tilley Hat traditions, it's crushable, packable and water resistant. The inside Hydrofil® lining is soft, warm and helps wick moisture away. Styled with a subtle 'pinch front' and molded crown, it has tuckaway ear warmers to help keep you warm. In the secret pocket is a feather which, you may use to adorn your Hat. Spot clean with a soft bristle brush.
Until now, all Tilley Hats were hand-sewn from cloth. Producing a fedora required the age-old tradition of blocking hats using presses and molds and shaping material using heat and steam. After searching far and wide for an experienced, quality-driven hat manufactuer we found it in the United States. We have teamed up with one of the most established and well-respected of fedora hat manufacturers, a fourth-generation hatter using state-of-the-art equipment to produce our high quality, beautifully made Tilley Fedora. (P.S. It's the first Tilley Hat made in U.S.A.)
Besides being good-looking, warm and comfortable, here's what makes it special:
* Guaranteed for life not to wear out
* Insured against loss
* Designed to fit slightly higher on your head than a traditional Tilley Hat. Should fit snugly, yet be comfortable
* Unique tuckaway ear warmers provide comfort and additional 'staying power'
* 100% premium fur felt
* Secret Pocket within the cozy interior
* Hydrofil® lining is soft, warm and wicks moisture away
* Optional feather included to adorn the hat
* Tonal hat band with a Tilley logo pin
* Comes with a Tilley Fedora Owner's Manual
The Tilley Fedora can be packed flat in your suitcase and then brought back to life by simply re-shaping it with your hands. The crown will pop back to its original shape. Creases will fall out or, if deep, can be steamed out.
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!
It's also insured against loss. If you do lose it, or the family dog destroys it, we'll replace it within two years of the purchase date at half the current catalogue price, through our mail-order department. We always try to meet our clients at least half way!
With your Hat, you'll be provided with "The Straight-Shooter's Statement of Loss of a Tilley Hat" insurance policy. Again, the insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible, and is not issued by Lloyds.
I think you'll find it a good read. It's available in either English or French.
Owner's Manual for Tilley Fedora
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 a quarter for an emergency phone
Spot cleaning with a soft-bristled brush is all this hat requires to get rid of any surface dirt. To keep your hat looking the same as the day you bought it, brushing it in the direction of the felt will keep it looking neat and ready to go. The Fedora must only be spot cleaned with a soft-bristled brush or the guarantee is void. Do not wash and do not dry clean. We offer the Fedora Brush.

If you somehow get a stubborn crease, a light steaming will take care of it. Place it in the bathroom while you shower and let the steam from the shower work its magic.
