Pierre of Stellenbosch, South Africa
I am now on my 3rd Tilley Hat.
The first I bought in London while waiting for my wife to try on new hiking boots more than 10 years ago. Seeing the hat for the first time piqued my interest, reading the “write-up” tag and “brag tags” ensured both my wife and I bringing Tilleys back to Africa.
I lost my first Tilley hat while hunting on our farm in the Kalahari Desert – a result of being very tired and not thinking.
The second was just about destroyed when a young African Wild Dog got hold of it – I should not let it lie around in the bush!
