National Hat Day Celebrations

Borsalino Fur Felt Fedora - The Como at HartfordYork.comAny extra special plans for today? It’s National Hat Day today and we’re in celebration mode with our Fall/Winter Clearance Sale. If you’re on the HY email list, you’ll know that we just made the annual event even better by taking an additional 10% off the sale prices (which are already reduced by up to 65%).

What better way to celebrate this special day than with the long overdue acquisition of a hat you’ve been eyeing, like that fur felt fedora The Como from Borsalino — now offered at the best price you’ll ever see?

Don’t forget to load up on shirts, pants and sweaters from designers including Robert Graham, Nat Nast and Tommy Bahama — after all, you’ll need some good-looking duds to go with all those new hats.

Take time to browse — we’ve put up quite a selection, but remember that inventory is limited so for best selection, put your order in today. Once a size, color or style is sold out, no amount of crying will help. I’ll feel for you, of course, and deeply, but it’ll still sting and you’ll have to be strong.

Happy National Hat Day!

Straw Hats for Men

Makins Bu Straw Fedora - The Lyceum Hat at HartfordYork.comWe’ve got more five-star customer reviews to share, this time on perfect-for-summer straw hats.

The one pictured here is a Makins fedora called The Lyceum. Made from Japanese Bu straw, you really won’t believe how light this very classy hat is until you put it on your head. The blue with white multi-striped band is, using the word of a satisfied customer “magnificent”, and if you like your hats made in the U.S.A., then you’ll appreciate that this hat was made in New York City.

Joel W. called The Montecristi Pork Pie, a Panama hat by Biltmore, “a great lid.” Since he spends time in southeast Asia, he says it’s important to wear Panama hats “of high quality because of all the heat and humidity.” His assessment of The Montecristi Pork Pie? “This one rocks!”

Another Biltmore straw hat received a five-star review. Customer Enoch B. said he likes the quality of The Ventilated Panama hat, a pinch front fedora with an interesting dimensional brim and cooling open mesh crown. The great look comes in at a great price too. What’s not to like?

Keep those customer reviews coming. Let us know what makes you happy — and we’ll continue doing just that!

Men’s Large Hats in Sizes 2X and 3X

Borsalino Panama Hat - The Vented Montecristi Fedora at HartfordYork.comMen’s hats that fit very large heads can sometimes be quite difficult to find. Most retailers just don’t seem to keep enough 2X and 3X sizes in stock — the hats that are big enough for the hard-to-fit man with a Size 8 head, measuring 25 1/4 inches.

At Hartford York, we have an extensive collection of men’s hats in larger sizes, from dress hats to casual caps in every material. Pictured above is a Borsalino Panama hat called The Ventilated Montecristi. It’s a limited edition, handwoven hat that is exceptionally lightweight for comfortable summer wear. The level of craftsmanship is obvious from the intricacy of the weave.

Also available in XXL is a newsboy cap called The Linen Lennon. I challenged my friend Anthony Peto of Paris to recreate the cap (the original of which is in a famous picture of John Lennon), and this very full cut newsboy in a toothy 100% Irish linen is the result. Imagine.

For those of you who pay attention to such things, yes, both The Ventilated Montecristi and The Linen Lennon are exclusive to Hartford York, in addition to being part of 2X and 3X hat selection.
