Tilley Endurables, the Canadian company long recognized as the maker of high
quality outdoor hats, was started in 1980 when Alex Tilley needed a good hat
for sailing and couldn't find one, and decided to make one himself. He spared
no effort, sought advice from a milliner, sailmaker and hat maker, and, as he
says "got it right". Only afterwards, when he saw that he had an outstanding
hat, did he decide to sell it through stores. The sale of the original hat,
and expansion into a range of hats and travel ware, has benefited from Alex
Tilley's imagination and insistence on outstanding quality.
