The Tellason Wyckoff Chambray & Denim Bucket Hats
Tellason developed two versions of buckets hats, one in chambray, and one in denim fabric. The Wyckoff bucket hat is named after the mother of one of Tellson’s founder, Pete Searson, who has worn a bucket hat every day for the last 30 or so years.
The Origin Of The Bucket Hat
The origin of the Bucket Hat goes back to Ireland where these were worn traditionally by fishermen and farmers as protection for the rain. It was quickly adopted by the English upper classes for country pursuits like walking, wild-fowling, and fishing as, when folded, it could fit inside a coat pocket.
The bucket hat has been introduced around 1900. Originally these hats were made from wool or tweed cloth, as the unwashed (raw) wool made these hats naturally waterproof. The modern bucket hat version is made from olive drab cotton that was issued to the US Army during the Vietnam War. And from the 1960s it is seen as a fashion item too. In the 1980s this style was also adopted within the hip-hop scene.
Nowadays a true classic which is available in different versions, fabrics, and colors.
The Tellason Bucket Hats
The Tellason Wyckoff bucket hats are made in Germany in partnership with Stetson Europe. One of them is made in light chambray color, while the other is a dark 10oz Japanese selvedge denim fabric. The hats are available at retailer Hepcat in Lund, Sweden here.
Perfect hats to use all-year around, but especially during the Summer when the sun is out.
