Australia is really heating up for winter.
Cold-weather hats have evolved beyond the classic beanie (though we still do love this retro winter look) and now we have more options than ever when manufacturing our winter hat collections.
Mitchells have been producing a lot of winter fabrics and matching them with summer styles, resulting in fashionable, unique winter headwear.
This winter season is all about contrast, from the geometric prints to the large weave knit winter fabrics and often featured on styles previously thought only to be a summer trend.
For this years change to the colder seasons, we will see the bright saturated colours of summer styles traded in for muted, subtle tones but with eccentric and classic patterns, statement-making weaves and a variety of cross-season shapes. Grey, Charcoal, Burgundy, Beige, Black and White?s are all signs of a winter hat style this year.
Winter fabric choices can be as varied as you like. Some of the top picks for the colder months are:
- 100% Acrylic (for Beanies only)
- Wool / Acryclic
- Faux Suede
- Micro Polar Fleece
- Corduroy ? Sublimation
- Jersey Fabric
- Wool Felt
For example this custom winter 5 panel hat features Corduroy fabric with a floral print, on a 5 panel summer style:
Some of the fabric samples available for the season are featured here:
Pairing these thicker, softer fabrics to any hat style is an easy task for Mitchells. This seasons popular winter styles include:
- Womens Boho hats
- Womens Fedora’s in Wool and Felt
- Mens Fashion Hats including Baseball Caps
- Mens Cheese Cutter hats
The womens Boho hat is a really great all year round shade hat, but has definitely made a huge statement during winter in the last few years. Featuring 100% Wool/Felt fabric with subtle branding methods such as embossed metal badges. This hat can offer winter warmth and is one of Mitchells most popular hats being manufactured this winter for the female fashion icon.
Fedoras are cool calm and collected for wear all year round. We have paired this style for winter with a mixture of plain and print fabrics in wool & viscose blends, cotton, wool & acrylic blends. We?ve added a mix of labelling methods such as embroidered brand names, metal badges & fabric labels, to jazz them up.
Mens fashion hats have come a long way in recent times. Not only do we have a huge selection of fabrics; the mould and shape of the hat can be fully customised to suit your own design and style. There?s not much we can?t create for mens hat styles. Popular fabrics this winter season include wool, felt, corduroy, jersey, flannels, acrylic and wool blended fabrics.
Alongside the mens fashion hats this season we have also released the Cheese Cutter in a winter style for all of the hipster-fashionista men out there. We have paired it with wools, cottons and knits to heat things up on those cold winter days that still require some professional but unique fashion pieces.
