You know Belgian beer, and you know Belgian chocolate. But, do you know Belgian ivy and newsboy caps? If not, you’re about to be introduced to yet another high quality product from this small and marvelous country of about ten million inhabitants who take great pride in what they produce.
Village Hat Shop is proud to introduce our exclusive line of cut-and-sewn flat caps from City Sport, founded in 1898. In early March, we travelled to Ardooie, Belgium, population about 7,000, to meet and work with Tom Declercq, a fourth generation hatter and the owner of City Sport. We spent the day choosing fabrics from the fine selection of Harris tweeds, Donegal's, Italian woolens, and other gorgeous European piece-goods. We then married these fabrics with styles that, we hope you will agree, result in either great classic looks or cutting-edge, fashion-forward headwear.
Make certain to watch the video that we brought home. Learn about this very interesting and labor intensive manufacturing process. If you choose to purchase a City Sport hat or cap, you will cherish its quality and workmanship.
This is a hat lover's hat.
