We are delighted to announce Patey as a silver sponsor for 2018.
In partnership with the renowned Corne Family, Patey Hats can trace its roots back to 1695 when the French Huguenot Corne family arrived in London.
They brought with them the skills of Parisian hat making, and quickly established themselves as hat makers.
By the 1950′s Ray and Derek Corne, two of eleven children, were working for their uncle at Corne Brothers in Norwood South London, an area renowned for its quality hat-making. Ray and Derek’s apprenticeship commenced as children working for their father in his small workshop making hats for the film and theatre world.
In the mid-fifties, the Corne Brothers relocated to Essex, unwilling to leave their roots in Southeast London. Ray and Derek, along with Sid Patey, set up Patey Hats on the Old Kent Road and quickly established themselves as London’s premier hat makers, a tradition that remains today with their factory situated in Forest Hill. They made hats for Royalty, the Tower of London, London’s finest Hotels and many other luminaries including Stirling Moss and Juan Fangio, the finest drivers of their generation.
