Whisky Fedora Carlisle Hats


Carlisle Hats began 16 years ago in St Kilda East and is run by Leanne and her husband Tibor, both makers and creatives in the hat business.

These Fedoras use a traditional weight 120g Australian Merino wool felt with a soft cotton inner sweatband. The outer ribbon is a Japanese grosgrain and finished with a leather slipknot detail. The brim width is 8cm and you may flick the brim up or down.

These hats have been specifically made for Wootten and can take a week to produce these beauties.

Very limited stock available. In the instance where the size is sold out there may be an 8-week waiting period while more stock is made. Please get in touch if you want to confirm sizing availability.

Currently only available in Medium, Large and Extra Large sizing.

Take a tape measure, or you can use a piece of non-stretch string and then measure that afterwards. Wrap the tape around the circumference of your head; above the ears and across the middle of the forehead, roughly where you would comfortably sit a hat. Make sure it is not too tight or your hat will give you a migraine! It is better to be too big than too small because you can always add a piece of foam under the sweatband to bulk it up. Record the measurement in cm’s and compare to the size chart above for your standard size.
