HERE'S WHY TILLEY HATS ARE ACKNOWLEDGED "THE BEST IN THE
APPEARANCE AND COMFORT:
To protect you from the sun and rain, Tilleys fit lower than other hats.
This also tends to give one a rather dashing appearance!
comfort, they're held on by gravity, not painful pressure on your forehead. On a
hot muggy day, you'll especially appreciate this!Even though they fit
gently, Tilleys won't fly off because when there's a breeze, you use one or both
parts of the tuckaway Wind Cord (see TIES ON below).GUARANTEED
Tilleys are replaced free if they ever wear out, shrink or
fall apart. They're so carefully handcrafted by us in Canada, and made of such
strong materials, that many outlive their owners. Final words in the Owner's
Manual? "Pass it on!"INSURED AGAINST LOSS:
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 catalogue price.
With your Hat, you'll be provided with
"The Straight-Shooter's Statement of Loss of a Tilley Hat"
policy. The insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible, and is not
issued by Lloyds.FLOATS:
A layer of closed-cell foam in the
crown, and sometimes in the brim, provides the Tilley's positive buoyancy. This
is a boon to boaters and fishermen/women/people. Good
People have told us that this foam layer has helped
save their lives. Double your money back if it doesn't save yours. Apply
The Tilley comes with a
, fore 'n' aft Wind Cord. When it's calm, the
Wind Cord stays hidden in the crown. When there's a breeze, place the part with
the sliding knots behind your head. When it's windy or you're sailing, use the
chin part too.
See COMFORT above, and the Owner's Manual, which
accompanies each Hat, for amplification.REPELS RAIN:
perfectly but usually quite adequately. Happily, the brims of the cotton-duck
Tilleys actually become stiffer when they get wet, not floppier, helping to
protect your neck, face and glasses.
The Lighterweight Nylamtium Tilleys
are excellent at repelling rain.WON'T SHRINK:
They, in 1980:
"Alex, you can't make a cotton hat that won't shrink!"
Me: "But what if we
boiled the material first? Mercilessly preshrunk it?"
They: "Well, I guess
that would work."It did and does.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.CERTIFIED SUN
The fabric and style 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 15
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.UMPTEEN SIZES:
Most hat makers
make 4 or 5 sizes; we make 13, and even individual Hats beyond that size range
As a matter of principle, no one shall be deprived of the
pleasure and privileges of Tilley Hat ownership simply because of an uncommon
The Tilley Hat fits more comfortably than other hats. It's
designed to be worn low on your head and slightly loose. It should be held on by
gravity, not by painful pressure on your forehead!
For the proper fit, you
should be able to easily insert two fingers, flat, between the middle of your
forehead and the front of the Hat. The Hat should be loose enough that you can
rotate it to the left and right, and lift it up and down, without friction on
your forehead. When it's windy, use the cord!
Like footwear, your Tilley
Hat must be sized properly. To find your hat size, use a tape measure and draw
it right around your head, just above the eyebrows.
