Autumn in the British countryside can feel like the most incredible time of year. Sometimes known as a ‘second spring’, it’s a time of change and renewal when the landscape becomes ablaze with wondrous shades of yellows and rust reds, and we fall in love with nature all over again.
But this year, Autumn holds even more significance, because during the last 18 months, nature has provided a sanctuary for many of us. We’ve realised just how energising the scent of rainy woodland can be on our daily walk, or how our gardening, riding or running routines have hugely helped our wellbeing.
So, as Autumn spreads its magic across the countryside, it’s time to escape into the great outdoors. But with cooler, wetter weather ahead, having the right hat is as essential as having the right boots.
Our new baker boy cap offers an effortless, stylish update with plenty of practical points. Designed for women and men to wear, it’s a versatile wardrobe staple and the ideal accessory to breathe new life into your autumn jackets and knitwear. It’s perfect for life outdoors as the peaked design will help to keep the low autumn sun out of your eyes on early mornings and late afternoons.
Our designs come in two fabric styles; the Hengrave is a wax cotton style and the Felsham comes in tweed.
This modern, outdoorsy style is the perfect companion for adventures in nature. Made using waxed cotton, it effortlessly weathers wind and rain and helps keep out the cold. The Hengrave is also durable and has a high level of water resistance. In Olive or Navy, this understated, versatile design pairs easily with everything in your wardrobe.
A true classic, the Felsham is made using high quality wool tweed sourced from the renowned British heritage mill, Abraham Moon. One of the last remaining vertical woollen mills in Britain, Moon has been crafting the finest English Tweed since 1837. Their colours are created from up to six shades, rather than a single colour, so the tone and texture of each fabric is sophisticated and unique. And as tweed is the original performance fabric, our Felsham cap is an optimum choice for your upcoming outdoor pursuits.
In crisp shades of Charcoal, Green or Russet, the Felsham looks as at home striding through town as it does striding across moorland.
