Christys' of London began way back in 1773, when Miller Christy decided that making fine quality men's hats was his calling. It took him seven years of apprenticeship to learn "the art and mystery of felt making". That tradition of quality and excellence has been passed down from generation to generation. The large red hat boxes with gold lettering is a symbol of that tradition, one that is recognizable all over the world. Today, Christys' of London produces a wide variety of fine headwear. From bowlers and top hats to ivy caps and everything in between, Christys' takes pride in providing quality hats of stature in the traditional way. Using hatting skills established over 200 years ago, the dedication of their highly skilled craftsmen and women continue to keep a valuable industry very much alive.
