Christys & Co brings back the pork pie hat

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


According to our information, Christys & Co were responsible for bringing the pork pie hat to the British high street, producing the hat for Dunn & Co in the early 60s. Now it's back – but in strictly limited numbers.

The limited edition reissue goes by the name of the Maddern pork pie (named after Keith Maddern, who is responsible for this limited run), but is made and sold by Christys & Co, the hat made to order by the company and sold in their box. Each hat takes 3 to 4 weeks to make and is sold with a certificate of authenticity containing the number of the hat along with a 'care of your hat' brochure.


Want one? They retail for £100 (including UK delivery and a donation to the Macmillan Cancer Charity). If you plan on ordering, make sure you give the correct hat size (measure just above your ears and around the circumference of your head in either inches or centimetres) and state which colour you require – black, navy, light grey or burgundy.

No online payment as yet, you'll need to email [email protected] for more details and payment options or send a cheque/postal order to Keith Maddern at 168 Maryrose Ave, Wootton Bridge, Ryde, IOW PO33 4PA with the necessary details.

  1. If you were old enough you would know that it is a porkpie hat. That is why in excess of 150 hats have been bought globaly by discerning people who were wearing them in the 1960’s.
