We have been working hard to bring you brand new additions to our spring summer ranges and our pleased to announce that the new SSP Hats Spring/Summer catalogue will be released from December 17th.

Firstly one of our most popular ranges is always the Fascinators and Wedding Hats and next season we will be extending this range significantly. Formed from Sinamay Materials, these hats will feature exquisite designs in a variety of shapes and sizes. Styles such as combs, headbands, forms, wide and short brims will all be available, appealing to a wide variety of customers.

Trendier styles such as Trilby’s and Fedoras were much in demand last season. So we are really excited to be adding new additions. Designed with straw materials and finished with neutral colours these hats come in a range of sizes to suit a variety of heads. Materials such as straw were hugely popular last season so we’ve decided to add new additions. Many of our new straws are accentuated with beautiful bands and an array of different sized brims that are bound to impress.

Another popular style last season was our Sun Hats in particular the bush hat style, so we are happy to be extending this range also. Featuring bright colours, soft materials and appealing patterns, children and ladies will adore these new hats. The Aussie hats range will also be getting two new styles specifically for men and a more casual look. While female customers are catered for thanks to our new visors. Finally this catalogue will showcase some new additions to our already superb Hawkins country range. High demand items such as flat caps and porkpies are being added to the already long list of great Hawkins country items.

Naturally we will also be restocking on our most successful ranges from last year. This new directory should be with you very shortly. We should have 100% stock levels of all products in the directory by February 2016, but do feel free to place orders as soon as you like, we can then arrange a despatch date to suit you. Goods are not invoiced until the day of despatch. But it’s best to get your order in early so as not to be disappointed on missing out later!

Super eight panel caps at affordable prices

Posted on November 11th, 2015

Just one of the many available

Just one of the many Eight panel caps available

Leaves on the ground, mist in the morning and British summer time ending can only mean one thing, the autumn season has finally arrived. Consistently we find that one of our most popular trends for autumn is our 8 panel caps. This month we’ve decided to showcase this wonderful range that mixes durability with style.

The 8-Panel cap style-also known in some quarters as a newsboy cap-has a rich and vibrant history. Popular across Europe and America during the 19th and 20th centuries newsboy caps were worn by everyone from newsboys to tradesmen. Lately these hats are now increasingly worn by various different groups as a fashion statement or a practical outdoor hat. This year in particular has seen this type of style go through a real resurgence.

Due to their popularity, we have increased our range with three new additions. H91, H92 and H96 are available under the Hawkins brand and features the stiff peak, panels, round body and button at the top. Alongside these we have favourites such as last year’s bestseller EHT2 along with AE24 and A45.

Customers looking for a practical outdoor cap to keep heads warm during the harsher weather will love this range. But so will those simply wanting to create a vintage look with the added bonus of having kept cosy. The beauty of our 8 panel caps is just how universal they are. Many of the caps offering a wide range of hat sizes from 56cm to 61cm.

With gentle and calm colours like navy, olive and grey, these hats contain colour schemes that are perfect for the autumn months moving on into winter. But the true brilliance of these hats is that they are great value for money. With prices available from £2.33 onwards these hats will give you the opportunity of great profit margins and will no doubt be popular with your customer base. Understandably these caps are well requested so remember to place orders now.

While all of these 8 panel caps are fantastic for this time of year, this is also an apt time to remind people that we have similar tweed and trilby hats. Click the hats below to take a closer look or take a look further at our outstanding winter collection. Remember we also offer 10% discount on those order paid in advance.

Firstly for Halloween, we have a great variety of children’s novelty hats and earmuffs that would accompany any Halloween outfit perfectly. This includes our monster novelty hats such as our furry C228, C208 or soft fleece C416, which are all quirky and fun. Elsewhere we have animal gilets like the sublime BW7 and BW9. These also have the advantage of keeping a child warm while still standing out. Finally our animal earmuffs such as C223 would be a great choice accessory, keeping those little ears snug.

For those who may be attending bonfire night, we have a whole host of styles of hats and accessories that will keep those hands and ears warm. Hats suitable for Bonfire night include our Ski, trapper and peruvian hats. Gloves can also be found in the winter collection, along with Umbrellas, just in case the whole thing gets rained off.

Autumn Fair feedback

Posted on September 29th, 2015

As mentioned in previous newsletters, we at SSP hats ended our trade show season at the Birmingham Nec with one of the most important trade shows of the year, Autumn fair. Feedback from this was excellent and showcased some interesting trends.

Firstly, just like in previous trade shows, our newest tweed bags such as LB34 and LB35 were very popular this time round. But it wasn’t just the tweed bags, our current children bags such as LB27 were big sellers this time round and were available at sale prices. Aussie style hats like our newest AK62 and tweed hats such as EHT2 were also a popular choice, with both being perfect for outdoor working.

Understandably with the weather changing rapidly and the cold soon to bite, many of our customers placed orders for hats and accessories more suitable for winter. Gloves like GM20, ski hats such as A621 and latest additions to our wellies like WF109 were all popular choices.

The most successful range for this season however was our range of faux fur hats. From our new headbands such as AW136 to our wide brims like A322, the mixture of style and practicality was irresistible for some of our customers.

SSP Hats would like to thank everyone who came to visit us during Autumn Fair and the other trade shows this Autumn/Winter season. We always welcome feedback, especially on our newest ranges. Unfortunately this is the last trade show for this year but we will be attending trade shows next year, with announcements soon.

New Ladies tweed bags

Posted on August 27th, 2015

tweed-bagsThis month we would like to bring to your attention our newly designed tweed bags for the new Autumn/Winter collection which are causing quite a stir already. Tweed as a material is rich in history and heritage with an excellent reputation.

New tweed bags such as LB33 and LB37 are particular standouts with their Mid and Light green colours and faux leather patches. Brighter options include LB39 and LB37 which feature more enticing reds and browns on both the front and back. These neutral colours also mean that the bags would go well with any outfit.

These bags offer a range of differing shapes and sizes, making them practical for any situation from shopping to holidays. LB33 for example is a smaller cross body bag so is more suited for those essential items. Whilst larger bags such like LB35 and LB39 are more ideal for shopping or holidaying.

Every bag features plenty of space and compartments along with soft lining to protect those precious items. Some feature adjustable straps and buckles, making them one size fits all and allowing the wearer to create a comfortable fit, whilst others feature sturdy handles.

Available very soon and being sold in packs of 2 under the Hawkins brand name, these tweed bags will remain popular all year round, but especially this season when tweed features high in the fashion stakes.
