Occasionally, you encounter a piece of clothing or hat so exquisite it can convey you to a distant land, a faraway place. It can make you daydream of vaulted streets along cliffs above the ocean and waterfront walkways lined with cobblestones. No other hat maker in the world can whisk you away to the picturesque Mediterranean villas over vibrant blue water quite like Aegean.
Since 1886, Aegean has been purveyor of authentic Greek fisherman caps. The Greek fisherman’s hat is a hat style that is perhaps one of the most iconic around the globe. Aegean carefully crafts its caps with a quality found only among the original makers of the headwear, nestled in an old, European town on the outskirts of Athens. Aegean’s Greek fisherman’s caps transport the wearer to warm, sunny skies that glance off the water like the hull of a boat pulling out to sea. The selections from Aegean show an acute attention to maintaining traditional detailing and precision millinery that has made the hat style a world-renowned fashion.
Aegean’s fisherman caps and the wistful visions they invoke are not simply artifacts of the mind; they are some of most sought after hats in the western hemisphere. And they are not suited only for ocean voyages — their intricate designs bring a quiet confidence to any outfit whether on land or at sea.
The Grecian-inspired hatmakers have built unmatched expertise in the millinery industry. Their hatmakers understand not only how the design and the feel of the hat. They also have a firm grasp on what modern consumers desire in a cap or hat. Their craftsmanship reflects this knowledge, and their reputation precedes them.
The skilled craftsmen realize that the chill air of a fishing ship at sea is not the most likely milieu for many shoppers today. To entice the everyday wearers among us, they have developed fashion for the shoulder seasons in the form of lightweight cotton Spring and Summer collections to complement the warmer-weather hat styles. From Captain’s Hat to traditional Fisherman Caps to their Wool Fisherman Cap for breezier nights and cooler weather, Aegean is a paragon of both comfort and style.
Greek fisherman caps have long represented the sailing world since the turn of the 20th century. Their instantly recognizable silhouette is the feature of sailors and of the everyday man and woman all around the world to this day. While their origins symbolize the sailing world, fashionable consumers today recognize the subtle brilliance these pieces can bring even to a more modern wardrobe. They even come as a large size hat, for the heartiest of fishermen among us.
