According to Days Of The Year, Sunday 15th January is National Hat Day. We’re a big fan of hats, especially in this cold weather. The earliest evidence of hats dates back to 3000 BC, when a mural from that time showed a man wearing a hat made from straw.

Here are 8 of our favourite independent retailers who sell hats.
