Charles Pressier - Canton, Ohio, USA

Love my Selke hat!  Picked up during the vacation of a lifetime in NZ, and found it warm when needed, and cool when needed!  Now that's amazing!  No synthetic hat could come anywhere close to that.  I think I should buy a whole box of them and sell them over here in Canada!  I could have one for working on my farm and one to wear to town!

Sid Jones - Richard, Sk, Canada

I received the hat today.  Your advice about which product was spot-on.  The package arrived thoroughly run over, re-taped at least once, but the hat survived unscathed of course.  Please consider this to be an endorsement.  Ordered 31.7.2016.

Glenn Hill - Takaka, Golden Bay, NZ

A strange story for you......

 

A year or more ago I bought a new cap from you to replace the much loved deerskin I bought maybe 20 years earlier from the Christchurch market....and lost .  I am very happy with the new one.

I was wearing it recently, sitting in the sun, outside a museum in Stockholm, waiting for my wife.  I was in the midst of a few members of a Korean tour group.  One gentleman, (wearing a Ferrari cap!) came over to me, and stroked the hat on my head!  Then he smiled. took off his hat, took mine off me and put it on his own head!!

He oohed and aahed, took a selfie, and some of his companions gave him positive feedback...and I totally nonplussed said something simple to him. 

It turned out he wants a cap the same as mine - a 609TRBL.  I am sending him your details.
26.5.2016
Brian Clark - Wellington, NZ

I received the hat about 10 days ago, and I really wanted to thank you for the great customer service.  From New Zealand to Germany, with no shipping fee, in such a short period of time.  This is great!  Thank you very much.

The girls wear them to school, and when they wore them to Calf Club they got lots of comments - even more when they went to Group Day.  I don't think they have taken them off since we received them - which is what I was hoping for:

For some time I have been looking for a suitable cap when driving my open vintage cars.  I almost gave up!  Then I discovered your fantastic range of quality products.  I chose the Oilskin Cap with Opossum trim (102P) - perfect for my needs.  Warm, great quality and fits comfortably - all that you need when driving in old open vintage cars.  The chin strap is easy to use, even with thick gloves on.  This in particular is a great feature.  Thanks Warrick - you have a great product.

Just arrived, living back in Wellington and felt the need to mark the occasion with a new hat.  3 shops down and I discovered the black leather trilby  in Leather Direct.  The best thing since sliced bread in a cold, wet Wellington Southerly, and quite the looker too.  Bonza!

.....After hunting around the local shops in Akaroa and finding only flimsy cotton hats made in China, I finally found a shop selling proper hats made in New Zealand, and emerged from the shop proudly wearing what I now know as a 'Selke'.... I would like to order a replacement Selke Brown Oilskin "Hat".

The hat arrived and it's beautiful.  Thick, smooth suede of the highest quality, yet soft and comfortable.  The shape is perfect; raffish, rugged and outdoorsy.  I will be proud to wear it all the time, and especially in the Pacific Northwest's misty rainy weather.  Thank you too for an easy purchase process in spite of the appreciable distance.  I'm sure I will be asked, and you can be sure I will send people your way.  Many thanks and best of luck for 2015.

I just want to thank you for your excellent service.  As you know I lost my cherished Selke Oilskin Hat when travelling here in the UK about 3 weeks ago and was really unsure whether I could ever get another.  Then I found your website.  I received my oilskin hat today, 27th May and that is just 7 days after I ordered it online from the UK.  The right hat, at the right price at double quick time!  Thank you Warrick, I shall be recommending Selke Hats and your service to as many people here in the UK as I can.

Joy Gulliver-brown - Cinderford, Glos., UK

Hi there,
I work as a multiday guide on the Milford track and, being outside all day everyday, I wanted a hat that would keep me well sheltered from the summer sun as well as the famous Milford rain.  I bought myself one of your distressed leather hats for Christmas and just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with it.  I wear it all the time when out working.  It keeps me well protected from the sun and (I love that) wearing it in the rain means I don't have to put the hood up on my jacket and can actually hear people and see all around me.  The chin strap is also a really awesome feature so I don't have to worry about it blowing off my head on a blustery day up Mackinnon pass.  I tell all my colleagues and clients about it when they ask.  Thanks for this awesome Kiwi-made product!!!
29.1.14
Amanda Sanders - Hamilton East, NZ

I missed the courier Tuesday, but it was waiting for me when I got home from the work Xmas party last night.  the hat is amazing!  Exactly what I've been wanting for years now!  The Mrs is keen for one also, so closer to her birthday early next year I will be in touch.  Thanks again!!  Matt

What can I say, truly outstanding and brilliant service.  Ordered at 5pm Wed, changed order at 6pm, personal phone call at 9pm, and arrived home today (Thursday) to find the hat on the doorstep.  That is less than 24 hrs (Great NZ service at its best).  I will certainly be buying more hats (although they look as though they will last a long time).
Thanks - you are awesome.
20.6.13
Tom Davies - Mt Pleasant, Christchurch, NZ
PS:  Happy for these comments to be published for advertising purposes, frankly I am amazed. 

I will go back to your web site and place an order.  In the mean time you might like to have a look at the two attached photos.  You will be pleased to know that one of your hats has the Royal Approval.  Prince Charles stopped to speak to a few of us, then, pointing to my hat said to me. "That's a very nice hat you've got there, don't forget to take it with you."  Cheers Pim

Thank you for the safe arrival of two fine caps.  You could only
have posted them on Monday at the earliest and they arrived in perfect condition on Saturday morning, an amazing delivery service.  The deerskin is beautifully soft.
The caps are somewhat better then the equivalent on offer in the UK, I sense you could have a good market in the UK and Europe.

A few years ago, I bought excellent Selke hat 308, size large, from a shop in Exeter UK, having seen one in tourist/travel shop at small town south edge of Lake Taupo.  My son in law now wants a similar hat, but I can't find the Exeter shop; perhaps closed.  In order to ascertain size, have you any stockists in SW England or London, please?
