J Virgo. A lovely selection of men's and ladies' hats, scarves, gloves and socks are available here along with ladies' tights and stockings. Many hats are locally-made and brands including Jane Anne and Royal hatmakers Christys are stocked.
Christy, London & Stockport, UK | Christy's is still in business as hatmakers and are world famous. They have been in business since 1773 and for many years had works in London (Bermondsey) and Stockport. Stockport site is still known as 'The Hat Works', run by the Borough Council as a museum. In 1948 they produced this lavish publication, printed by the well-known printing house of W S Cowell, Ipswich, to mark 175 years in business. No artist is given for this front cover dust jacket.
This week's 'customers' fave' is our beautiful red wool top hat by historic hatmakers Christys at a seriously reasonable £45. We never grow tired of fondly waving it off in its Violet tissue paper to a chirpy new owner. It's a BEAUTY!
