NFL! Football Season is Here! Hats! Beer! Hot dogs! FOOTBALL!

Football season has started!  Excitement is in the air!  Along with the smell of our favourite things, beer, hot dogs, and freshly cut grass!  Woah!  Slow down buddy, enough with the excitement, how about some history? Well, ok!  The National Football League dates back to the 1920s.  Initially founded as the  American Professional Football Association, they didn’t adopt the NFL title until 1922.

in the 1960s the NFL had a rival league, the American Football League, the two leagues fought over players, and drove up their salaries in bidding wars.  In 1965 Joe Namath famously signed to the New York Jets for $427,000!  But in the 1966s, the leagues stopped their fussin’ and a fightin’, and decided to merge.  It was decided the NFL & AFL would continue as the NFL.  And while they kept the National Football League name, they carry on some classic AFL traditions, such as names on player’s jerseys, and the on-field game clock!  The NFL is America’s most watched sport, and has 32 teams to date.

So get to watching!  Maybe you are a purist and support the one of the founding teams, the Chicago Bears?  Or maybe your favourite team is the 3rd team to join the party, the Green Bay Packers?  The NFL is one of the most watched sports in America, and as the season is just beginning, you still have plenty of time to get your merch, and support your team!

This film is about two brothers that run a successful liquor business in Franklin County, but one of their friends decides that they will use their bar for illegal activities, once this happens all hell breaks loose!! In this film they show a huge selection of characters in different hats! It’s a great watch we would highly recommend it! One of the main hats in which the actors wear is the famous Fedora hat. One in particular hat that stood out to us is the one in which Forrest wears played by Tom Hardy, we have found it to be very similar to our Christy’s Hat Foldaway Fedora in the colour brown. This hat is perfect as its foldaway so you can shape this hat to which ever style suits you, or you could style it so it’s almost identical to Tom Hardy’s hat! It is made from fur felt, has a grosgrain head band included and is packable.

Sports Hats! You wanted em! You got em!

Ever get that itch to really re-assess your lifestyle?  You’re sitting at your desk, snacking on crisps, feeling low energy?  You know what you need to do… Deep down, we all know we need to eat better, and of course(some say unfortunately) EXERCISE! And in this lovely temperate(deploy the sarcasm police) country of ours, if you intend to exercise outside, you need a to wear a hat during your work out! Or hobby, depending on how you decide to view the burn! So to start off with, lets talk the most commonly talked about exercise, the one we have all had a go at, spluttering up and down a field!  Running!  You will know if someone likes to run, because they will tell you(much like vegans).  Truthfully there is no judgement here, we at Village Hats love to run!  So here are my top two picks for running hats, but wait… two picks?  Are you crazy, that’s two too many choices! Well let’s be kind to our British selves, we have had a lovely summer haven’t we? Which makes it necessary for a summer, and a winter choice. So enough of the verbosity, on with the best running hats!

Firstly Summer! Because it’s not over yet!

Nike Hats DB Performance Pro Trucker Cap – Charcoal

There are a couple of reasons this is my favourite, firstly it’s a dark colour, which is great for disguising sweat, but it also has dri-fit technology, which also helps with sweat!  And lets be honest you will look so much cooler in dark colours, like a mysterious working out person(detective) guy!

My second choice for running outdoors hats is a classic Beanie Hat.  In fact this choice isn’t just for running, it’s for most outdoor sports in winter.

Patagonia Hats Fishermans Rolled Beanie Hat – Black  

PATAGONIAFISHERMANBEANIE

You might be thinking, black again? But not only will you look 100% cooler working out in a black beanie hat, but you will feel like freaking Rocky!

Rocky Balboa steps

Next up is an all-rounder by Tilley.  I’ve selected this one on the grounds not only is it perfect for walking, hiking,or even hunting outdoors, you are also safe in the knowledge that your awesome hat is insured for life!

Tilley Hats Waxed Cotton TWC7

So I’m breaking away from black, this hat is an awesome dark olive colour.  The perfect colour to make anyone feel like an adventurer! Not only does it look great, but the waxed cotton fabric feels fantastic!

And finally, with great consideration,  I think we all need a novelty yachting cap.  Even this dog thinks so!

I’m literally amazed, and excited that we stock this cap! Let’s all get our boat licenses and be captains, and most importantly wear this hat!
