He told the Wall Street Journal, “The hat is a symbol of Englishness. It’s an expression of individuality and, as such, one should choose a hat that one feels good about. It need not be eccentric; the look could be subtle. Not matching is the new matching.”
Fellow milliner Stephen Jones–who has created headgear for Dior and Vivienne Westwood–has also issued a number of headwear tips, including advising people to carefully consider all sides of the a hat when deciding what to wear.
He advised, “Remember there are two sides and a back too! Wear the hat at home first, so you get used to the balance.
