Mister Miller uses the noblest materials. Like all of life’s good things – your cap will live long with love.
Harris Tweeds & Cashmeres, Merino Lambswool & Mohair:
Brush your cap using a bristle hat brush. Using steam from a household kettle, brush to fend off any dust and revive the grain. Shake off any rainwater and allow your cap to dry at room temperature. Avoid drying on radiators as this can cause shrinkage. Exercise delicacy when brushing cashmere and lambswool to maintain the material’s smooth texture. Always follow the grain if (gently) brushing mohair: like with cats, never rub the wrong way.
Linen & Cotton, Denim & Corduroy:
Protect your summer cap from sand, suncream, sea and Sangria when not in use.

Mister Miller has been making hats for over 30 years: what started as a stint of work experience at the tender age of 14 went on to become a skill he learned to master and enjoy.
Miller remembers helping his father work from home making clothes. “The bobbin was winding side to side, super fast on a lovely old vintage Singer sewing machine, I was 12 years old and that was when it all started. It would be blouses, skirts, ski-pants (I know) … but I do remember making my first hat.
It was a promotion for Tour de France and Michelin tyres, cycling caps.”
He was introduced to the hatting tradition in the heart of Luton. Long established as the leading hat making town of the UK, it was peppered with factories that had sprung up as far back as the 16th century. In 1571, Parliament sought to save the domestic wool industry and passed a law forcing all males to wear a wool cap on Sundays and holidays, with law breakers facing a 3 farthing fine. While the law was repealed 26 years later, it had become a tradition and people had grown fond of wearing woollen hats. It can be said that the law gave birth to the flat cap.
He worked closely with the in-house designers becoming a supervisor and an integral member of the design team. Miller particularly enjoyed working with the cool Misa Harada; her unique style championed by Thierry Mugler, Yohji Yamamoto, and her work exhibited at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum.
Mister Miller hand makes every one of his caps in Britain using the noblest materials from leading weavers of wools, cashmeres and Harris tweeds.
During the warmer months, these give way to washed linen, seersucker, cotton and selvedge denim promising cool shady heads.
Rooted in tradition and peppered with contemporary accents, everything about the product is conceived to transcend time: the luxurious materials are paired with contrasting peaks made of aged leather, tonal variations, pops of colour and tartan wools. The branding is quietly suggested on the inside of the hats leaving the focus on the wearer and their style.
