Hills Hats Website and online Store

Their  story begins in 1875 when Englishman Chas Hill opened Hill and Sons, Men’s Hatters on Wellington’s Lambton Quay.Chas knew his hats. He had worked in the business in his home city of Bristol before setting out for the other side of the world. He travelled via Australia to Auckland looking for the ideal place to open a hatter’s shop. A savvy businessman, Chas quickly realised that as the seat of government Wellington was where he would find the majority of elite hat wearers.

The business flourished. By 1890 Chas had added another two shops to his business, in Napier and Nelson. He made his own hats as well as representing major companies from around the world. His advertising announced “We are in receipt of regular shipments of Hats from the following High-Class Makers: Christy and Co., Stetson and Co., Tress and Co…”

Today they continue to enhance the business established by the adventurous Chas over 138-years-ago. But now it’s we who supply high-end hat specialists around the world.

Scratch helped Hills to create an outstanding website and online store to rival the best Hat Brands in the world – no where else will you find such a range of quality head wear!
