All of The Long Shot Experiment hats are one of a kind, individually numbered and constructed from carefully selected materials. Our hats are made by hand with great care in our small workshop in Manchester, UK. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery.
Since 2015 The Long Shot Exp. has been creating individually made, hand crafted hats in Manchester. Initially focusing on bucket hats, we’ve recently added two styles of cap; the workers cap and cycling cap; and a growing range of graphic t-shirts.
Influenced by subcultural styles, Long Shot designs are developed from images and imaginings found in books, magazines and films. Though we reference historical styles, our silhouettes are interpretations rather than replicas, where folk-lore and myth are as important in getting a style ‘right’ as dimensions and material.
All of The Long Shot Exp. hats are made one at a time and are individually numbered, this ensures each Long Shot product is truly unique. Our recent focus has been on sourcing fabrics with provenance. We are currently using fabrics by Brisbane Moss (based in Todmorden, they have been weaving corduroy and moleskin fabrics since the middle of the 19th Century), British Millerain (founded in 1880 in Halifax and producing patented waterproof fabrics since 1894. Now based in Rochdale), UK denim weaver Hollie Ward (Hollie produces 14oz raw selvedge denim on a 1954 Hutchinson Hollingsworth shuttle loom in Yorkshire), and deadstock Japanese selvedge denim from the Kurabo mill.
