Hat Bands, The Best Way To Put A Spring In Your Step
This morning there was a lot of chirruping from my neighbourhood birds. There are the ones that sing songs like they are talking to one another, then there are the ones that let out that long whinge of a tone that sounds like you are being nagged by your girlfriend for leaving the towel over the door. Then there is that one bird that sounds like a boomerang coming back. It is merely nature telling us that it's spring again and it's time to start the mating ritual...
One of the smallest yet effective ways to attract someone is by a hat band. In a world where grosgrains in a small variety of colours are the only options to accentuate your hat, our hat bands are a refreshing new take on something very old. Made from our Como Italian silks, these bows on bands are highly luxurious and are made in a similar fashion to how we make bow ties. The added advantage is that you get no sweat marks - that awful white crust which forms on the black grosgrain of your existing hat. Our hat bands, once properly fitted at your local hatter, or at home if you have a spare five minutes, also mean that your hat is your signature. You won't have to worry about losing your hat because nobody else will have that silk on it.
My pick of the bunch is the one on the left. It is a baby pink and baby blue repps silk. Of all the hat bands I have put on my hats, this one is the most fun for spring. After that, second from the left is a royal blue mogador with white polka dots. The bands are $60.00 each. They will probably not go onto the website as we don't make many of them. But if you are interested in them, you can log onto www.lenoeudpapillon.com and let us know via the contact page.
