Tilley, which started in 1980, is most known for their iconic Tilley hat, which allegedly has once been eaten by an elephant and then defecated out fully whole some time later. Their hats are warranted for life, buoyant, and will even fit a giant head like mine.

Recently they have started producing some of their hats overseas, so look carefully at their listings. They don’t seem to have dropped their prices any so it’s unfortunate that they’ve gone this direction.
