Redressing the Balance…

There has been a subtle murmur of excitement and preening of feathers among the lady residents at 14a The Bridge since the arrival of some very smart hats for the gentlemen.  Thank you, and welcome, Jules Bushell for championing the new ‘Gentleman’s Area’.

We now stock a range of classic and stylish hats and caps by Christys.  There are some splendid fine panama straws, classic fine fur felts and dress hats at around £70-£90, and a range of natty wool felts, straws and caps from the Christys Crown range, which are fashionably styled in vibrant colours, at £35-£40.  I have been wearing the wine-trimmed black straw shown below;

And am very taken with the fine black panama also,

Many more images are now up on the ‘Gentleman’s Area’ page on this site.  We had a lot of fun doing our photoshoot with Andy Jones (Shooting Pixels), who was an unintrusive and professional photographer, and was incredibly patient with our lack of organisation and professional models!

Next, we are off to Didmarton Bluegrass Festival with our gentleman’s hats, the old gramaphone and some 78′s, to create our ‘Gentleman’s Area’ al fresco.  Music, sunshine and hats; let’s see what occurs!
