Winner of Stetson Cap + Video on How Those Caps are Made

I’ve been so busy admiring the new hats and apparel in the 2012 Fall/Winter catalog, that I nearly forgot to congratulate the winner of twitter competition at Competwition! Chaunyce D. of Chicago is the lucky winner of a fabulous JB Stetson Newsboy Cap, The Wool/Silk/Cashmere Hatteras.

Speaking of JB Stetson, if you haven’t seen how they make those woolen caps at their site in Germany, it’s pretty interesting and there’s a short video, The Making of a JB Stetson Cap, on the process. Templates are used to cut out the cap shapes (by hand), which are then individually sewn. One of the final steps in the process is the shaping of the cap–again, individually and by hand–on wooden blocks, using steam.

I admit to being somewhat fascinated by that one lady’s fingernails…but that’s off-topic and I have to get back to filling orders and dreaming up more Exclusive Hats to Hartford York — have you seen the leather hats from Victor Osborne of New York? They’re stunning. Take a look.

Thanks for reading,
Steve Singer
CEO Hartford York
