Ordering This Product

The Herbert Johnson Winter Wool Trilby design range are handcrafted in our limited edition mixed grey wool felt.  These hats have a 2½ inch raw-edge brim and come in a choice of ribbon-work colour options.

This style with its more modest proportions compared with our classic Poet styles having a slightly tapered lower crown and narrower brim, contribute to its highly wearable silhouette. 

Suitable for pairing with a wide variety of outfit styles and perfectly suited for the Autumn/Winter seasons.  The Herbert Johnson Winter Wool Trilby is a Limited Edition style available in a broad collection of ribbon colours including Lemon Yellow, Wine Red, Bright Red, Cobalt Blue, Navy Blue and Bright Blue.

Specifics :

  • Felt: Limited Edition mixed grey wool felt 
  • Brim: Classic 2½" raw-edge brim
  • Ribbon: Simple design Petersham ribbon-work with contrasting bow knot detail.  Option shown is the Bright Red option (other colourway options available)
  • Interior: No liner, soft leather branded sweatband
  • Bash: Hand-bashed soft centre-crease & side dents.

This hat has a softly tapered medium height crown shape.

Made with the women's right sided bow as standard as in this display option, please specify if you would prefer it on the men's side on the left.


This product will be handcrafted to order by our specialist hatting team at Herbert Johnson.  Please email enquiries-hj@herbert-johnson.co.uk to check our current lead time for this product.


Place the string or tape around your head above your ear and across the mid forehead, completely circling your head.  Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly.  Measure your head exactly where you want the hat to sit.  Measure in centimetres.  If your measurement falls between sizes, round up to the nearest centimetre.  It may help to either do this in the mirror or have someone to help for accuracy.

Hat Care:
Store your hat somewhere dry placed brim down or preferably in a hat box. We recommend using a soft bristled hat or clothes brush to care for your hat.  Brush your hat counter clockwise to free any particles from the felt. Avoid handling your hat by the crown as you could wear out the front pinch.  Holding your hat by the brim is the best way to handle any hat or by cradling the crown in an open palm.  Wool felts can be vulnerable to shrinkage or loss of shape under extreme moisture conditions and we advise against allowing your wool felt hat to become wet.  However, should this unavoidably occur, we advise against force drying the felt and it is best to allow it to dry naturally brim side down perhaps using a mold or hat-stretcher placed inside for support.  Proper care and storage can ensure you get the best longevity from your wool felt hat.
