Hats have always been part of my joie de vivre. Growing up I had a collection hung on the wall over the bed, and when my Great Aunt passed away, all I really wanted were her hats. She was like the Queen Mother, and I have a closet full of ostrich feather creations, netted funeral berets and tassled fascinators. Just so you know, none of these are particularly practical for life, let alone my penchant for travel. Having gotten to know Globetrotting Mama Heather Greenwood Davis over the years, she’s not only introduced me to more practical travel attire but the wonder of Tilley hats.

Jill Amery Impractical HatPractical is fine, but what about fashion? Checking out the Tilley website I realized I was set. Given our nasty Canadian climate, it had to be the Town & Country fedora. It repels rain and snow, boasts a secret pocket and tuck-away ear warmers, and comes with a 2 year warranty against all perils. While you’re looking, you should check it out for men. Hello, Indiana Jones. (I’m only looking at the hat.)

These make great Christmas gifts and if you get your online order in by December 17th to a Canadian address, you’ll receive it in time for Christmas!
