Brand Story

Headwear manufacturers Olney are based in Old Bedford Road, Luton, which has been the centre of hat making in the UK for nearly 300 years, and since 1914 the name of Olney has been synonymous with the production of a large range of quality headwear predominately for men, but as the company expanded, the range has grown to include ladies, uniform, and industrial hats and caps.

Whether it be a traditional tweed cap, genuine panama or the traditional straw boater, the classic range has stood the test of time and continues to be the backbone of the company. However in an ever changing market, the brand's products are evolving to meet the demands of the fashion conscious hat wearer. Currently owned and run by 4th generation of the Olney family, Andrew & David have a combined experience in the hat trade of over 50 years.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best cap for the best heads Cool? Practical? Warm? Snug fit? Whatever you want from a flat cap, this cap brings. The dark grey tweed provides unrivalled head warming performance and the style and fit straddles the fine line of fashion and function, a line which many caps are nowhere near. I would not be surprised to see this cap worn by massively popular, cool celebrities like Leonardo Di Caprio or Christian Bale. I could also imagine it would look good on lesser known celebrities as well. 26 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stays on even at windswept racecourses This has proved to be a perfect fit & stays on in even the most windy conditions. It is also good at retaining heat & keeps you dry. Ideal for wearing in the extreme conditions experienced at some racecourses 15 March 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad at all I initially looked for a country cap pattern (more as a joke) for my husband, but found this and it actually looks nice. The quality is good too. 12 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by East End Trendy or Country Gent.... Its your choice! Very nice quality hat, the grey you can wear with most jackets unlike a loud tweed hat. 17 February 2015
