Feltraiger X Whisler Civilian Hat
Feltraiger is excited to announce our collaboration with South Philadelphia based hat manufacturer Whisler Civilian.
Whisler Civilian's wide brim felt hats are individually handcrafted out of fine rabbit fur felt. They are steamed, stretched and blocked using antique wood hat blocks. Once dry, the brim is cut using a traditional rounding jack, then sanded and burned to finish the felt. Finally, the brim is ironed flat and the custom shaped with a pencil roll. The sewing is done on a restored 50's era Singer sewing machine and the patch is hand sewn to the body of the hat.
Each Whisler Civilian hat is hand-blocked, cut and styled - meaning it is a true heirloom that will last and grow with the wearer for adventure after adventure, year after year.
