Sou’westerly is a new company re-inventing the iconic Sou’wester hat (and in the future we have plans to develop other wet weather/ beach clothing). Sou’westers were worn by fishermen in foul weather and were named after the prevailing Southwesterly winds that typically carried rain. We take the original style and combine it with new high tech waxed cotton or canvas with vibrant, colourful cotton on the underside of the brim.
These hats are for dog walking, festivals, sporting events, holidays, gardening, the school run, commuting or indeed anything that needs a wet weather hands-free option. There is a Sou’wester to suit every occasion - whatever the weather.
Our Sou’westers are manufactured in the UK and we are keen to promote and support the UK textile and manufacturing industries. Our waxed cotton comes from the world's leading manufacturer with over 150 years of development and innovation of waterproof fabrics. Quality and longevity are the name of the game. Our Sou'westers are beautifully made and designed for a purpose ensuring they will be worn and loved for years to come.
