“We’ve had many vintage moments showcasing our hats with iconic aircraft as well as with exceptional classic cars. The racing and pageantry on what is the world’s most historic authentic motor circuit has been absolutely thrilling. And, it was quite amazing to see the competitors sporting 1940s, 50s and 60s looks who were selected for Best-Dressed. I really admire the attention to detail in every aspect of their clothing and appearance, which is quite astounding. The Goodwood Revival will always be a treasured highlight in our calendar.”
(Vivien Sheriff, September 2014)
