A new month is here! Always exciting to start something new. New month brings new problems but also new solutions. I managed to finish up more hats this week compared to previous week. I am already finishing up a couple of hats for the coming week. Schedule wise I am pretty much ahead. With the holiday season coming up it's worth to mention a couple of points to think about.
If you place an order now, I won't be able to complete in time for Christmas and New Year. Orders that I have on hand will however be completed before the holidays. Though, I will have a cut off period where I won't ship any packages as the system is totally swamped with Christmas packages. Usually it's the last two weeks of the year. If you are impacted by this I will of course let you know.
Regarding the homepage, I am still working on bringing back the old blog posts. There are a lot of photos which will take some time to upload again. I will try to have it back online as soon as possible. I hope you like the new functions for ordering custom hats, I will also redesign the initial shop page in the coming weeks.
This week I completed a couple of very interested hats. You have seen some of them before. The Dillinger and Ragnar needs no introduction. I have not come up with a new name for the two new styles, but I hope they will bring some interesting variation to the portfolio of Hufvud hats. The last, Sage Green fedora is inspired from 1920s photos of the same hat. Crafted from a vintage 52s wooden block style that I have. From the side it looks reverse tapered and from the front it's very tapered inwards. I love the look of this style. It's perhaps not for everyone, but definitely for someone who loves the particular era that I am trying to capture. I will stay very brief. If you have any questions, please send me an email. Happy to tell you more about these hat styles. I hope the videos are useful for you to see the hats in different views and details.
Thank you for your continued support! Orders, donations and words of encouragement! I am going through a lot at the moment, updates takes time for both website and social media.
