the “Cotswolder”

The Cotswolder shares some of its vital statistics with the Forager. Indeed, in some ways, it is a curled brim rendition of that hat. The crown block and bash are the same. The brim, although curled and bound, has the same visual width. The crown is accentuated by a narrow ribbon (although here it’s 10 ligne instead of seven). And like the Forager, the overall look of the Cotswolder seems to straddle a line between town and country, much depending upon one’s choice of colour and finish. Still, it is perhaps most beguiling, if somewhat quixotic, to see this as a gentleman’s country hat, the sort of handsome yet functional headwear one might don for a languid roam through hill and dale whilst inspecting one’s flock. Of course, it’s a safer bet that the closest you ever get to a flock of sheep is a plate of shepherd’s pie. In that case, you can wear it... well, whenever and however it may suit you. Full weight or welterweight, bare finish or angora, silk or linen lining, and in any colour combination of felt and 10 ligne ribbon, the Cotswolder is a very adaptive hat that can serve a variety of purposes... so no need to be sheepish.

This customer may be a bit camera shy, but he’s happy to show how well his cocoa brown angora Cotswolder pairs with a fine country tweed jacket.
