Purveyors of fine gentlemen’s hats and hat-manufacturer to the royals (and even the British Police Force), Christys’ is the go-to firm for authentic headgear.

So, ShortList was honoured to collaborate on the design of an exclusive new item: the ‘Bloomsbury’. Named after the location of our offices — the part of London that links Shoreditch with Soho — it’s a nod to its versatility and credibility.

Loosely based on Christys’ ‘Nimbin’ trilby and available in the summer 2011 Crown Collection, it comes in medium and large sizes and is made from mushroom-coloured soft-crocheted straw.

It also features an exclusive regimental claret-red ribbon trim and is finished and trimmed — as would be expected — in the UK.
