Tilley Endurables TTCH1 Tec-Cool Hat

$ 100.00

In 1984, Alex Tilley a keen yachtsman and art dealer decided to make himself a hat that would stand up to the harshest of weather conditions. The hat would also have to offer water and wind resistance, a chin strap, floating capabilities, a classic appearance and above all top quality workmanship. Once the main features were established he began searching for materials to meet his requirements. He centered his research around cotton canvas, a practical and durable material which has many natural advantages. However after manufacturing the initial prototype it was soon apparent the material was too thick, heavy and shrunk when it got wet. After considerable research and experiments Tilley realized by preshrinking and boiling the canvas it would eliminate the shrinking issue. Preshrunk cotton canvas became the first of many materials to be used to manufacture Tilley Hats.
