Brixton X City Hatters

Hats A person carries off the hat. Hats are about emotion. It is all about how it makes you feel.
- Philip Treacy




City Hatters on Flinders St, Melbourne Australia.


City Hatters have been trading for 105 years and they really are the ultimate one-stop shop for fedoras and felt hats in Melbourne. To celebrate their landmark birthday, the Flinders Street store teamed up with American brand Brixton, who joined in on the anniversary fun by launching their new Autumn/Winter 2015 collection in store a couple of weeks ago.

Hands down City hatters stocks the best hat range in Australia - from Panamas to Whippets they really do have something for everyone and, if you can't get exactly what you're after, they promise that their resident milliner Tess will be able to deliver the goods. 

The store is located under the historic clocks at Flinders Street station and has been in the same location since 1910, when the former station master's office was transformed into a hat shop stocking brands from around the globe to the stylish men and women of Melbourne.


Although they are fairly new to the hat game, Brixton also has a great story to go along with their brand; The company was established in 2004 by three friends who wanted to share their love for music, culture and the people that surrounded them.

A great cozy night was had by all with the smooth blues by Chris Wilson and the gent's at the Barrow Boys Brewing Co kept everyone's vocal chords hydrated.
