The finest collection of hats, Tom Smarte covers all the quintessential silhouettes in hat design including the fedora, flat cap, pork pie, newsboy cap and trilby. Style classics that will always be in favour, Tom Smarte presents shapes to suit all types of man and all situations.
All pieces are lovingly hand-crafted both in the UK and Italy by specialist highly skilled hat makers, whose craft has been passed down through the generations. The hats are built to last using age old blocking , forming, steaming and stitching techniques
The luxury fabrics sourced for the hats include tweeds, wools, fur felts, merino and cashmere with the colour palette staying classic – the perfect accompaniment to any style conscious wardrobe. The styles are timeless and traditional but have been gentrified for the modern man with contemporary style detailing, subtle twists and high-end fabrics.
Inspired by the rich and colourful heritage of hundreds of years of highly skilled hat making in the UK, the name Tom Smarte has been synonymous with hats since the 1770’s. With this modern brand being born from the intriguing story of generations of hat makers, all called Tom Smarte, the original Thomas Smarte made hats in Devon in the West Country of England with his apprentice Robert Maynard over 240 years ago. This British luxury brand has now been born to carry on this tradition of Tom Smarte, creating the finest quality hats which are built to last, drawing on the finest workmanship to hand-craft unique hats for the urban gentleman.
