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.
Tilley's travel and adventure clothing is designed for the practical traveller, with ease of care, versatility, durability and security features. Functional and comfortable, the garments pack small yet look great straight out of the suitcase or backpack. Like the Tilley hats, Tilley clothing is made in Canada. We are pleased to offer garments from Tilley's Different Drummer Legends and Venture Trek lines.
