About Us

In 1980, Alex Tilley set out to make the best Hat and the best travel and adventure clothing in the world.  Canada’s iconic Tilley Hats are now worn by people in many countries.

In the early 1980’s John and Barbara got involved; Tilley Hats at boat shows and a home basement store. Today, Jeff and Nikki Tilley own and operate our Tilley Vancouver family business; Barbara and John have semi-retired, and Uncle Alex has fully retired.
