Le Noeud Papillon has created a unique elasticated bow tie-esque band. Beautifully designed, using only the finest silk, it can be worn over your existing band or replace your old hat band. It comes in 2 sizes that will fit almost any hat with a crown. Not only does Le Noeud Papaillon hat bands give your hat a new exciting look but being dual layered, it also helps prevent sweat marks and can be cleaned easily when required.

The Story behind the Le Noeud Papillon Hat band…

When Nicholas Atgemis got talking with Robert Carroll from the Strand Hatters a very small idea quickly turned out to be a great solution.

“I was always having trouble with my hat bands getting a salty white sweat mark around the black band of my panama. When I approached Robert he said that it was difficult to remove the band to clean it properly because it was stitched in. So I asked him if I could make one in silk to go over the top of my existing hat band. A small idea which they said they had tried themselves. So, I set about working on a prototype using the design of my bow ties to work on the design of the hat band. The result was an elasticated bow tie-esque band which came in two hat sizes which could fit almost any hat with a crown. The band was designed to be worn over your existing band or else to replace your old hat band. However, once we put them on we pretty much realised that the hat had a new personality and that the hat bands were a product in themselves. They are made from the most highly prized silks sourced from the Como region of Italy and are made right here in Sydney. Better still, being dual layered, the sweat doesn’t seep through to form a white crust and in the event it does, the band can be quickly removed and washed at the dry cleaners. We are very proud of them and looking forward to working exclusively with the Strand Hatters”.

Sydney menswear is in for a shake up with the launch of men’s hat and accessories label, R&RC this April. Known around town as The Strand Hatters boys, uncle and nephew duo Robert and Richard Carroll will launch their first menswear collection for AW12 – to be stocked exclusively at the iconic Strand Arcade store.

With a focus on traditional manufacturing techniques; including hand-blocked felts, hand woven panama straws and vintage club-silks, the R&RC label have called on the finest manufacturers in Australia, including AKUBRA HATS, Hills Hats (NZ) and Ensign Ties to produce their wares.



For their first collection, R&RC present a small range of men’s hats that will include a handsome pork-pie style Panama (the “Hipshot” – a playful tribute to Robert’s father, an Australian bush poet) and a traditional fur-felt fedora (“Speakeasy”) alongside a selection of vintage club silk neckties and handkerchiefs.

Both Robert and Richard grew up in the same small Country town in Central Western NSW, a recurring inspiration for their designs. The R&RC logo, a hand-drawn Cockatoo designed by Richard, is a further reminder of the brands providence - as Robert’s Mother Judy kept cockatoos whilst the boys were growing up.

“Lately, there has been a massive movement in men’s fashion towards the yester-years. Gents are after a complete look...and the suspenders and bow ties that we’ve stocked at the store for years are becoming some of our biggest sellers. Our customers trust us and wanted more, so the launch of our label was a natural and organic progression…”
says Robert.

Robert Carroll studied millinery in both Sydney and London and has been in the industry for over 20 years. His nephew, Richard, studied Fine Arts at ANU and eventually ended up in Sydney to work with his Uncle at The Strand Hatters and pursue his interests in menswear. Both gentleman share similar interests in the arts, beers and helping men to look and feel their best – that a collaboration between the pair was inevitable.

Refined style and quality craftsmanship at its best: R&RC will be stocked exclusively at The Strand Hatters, Shop 8, Strand Arcade, Sydney 2000. First drop of R&RC in store April 2012.

Come in and visit Robert, Richard and the staff at the
Strand Hatters to find out more about our R&RC range.

The bow tie, once reserved for the cultural elite, is now accessible to all walks of life. A bow tie can be symbolic for nonchlance, flair, eccentricity, prep, intelligence, wit, charm or just plain fun. It can be worn by women and men alike - both casually and formally. A bow tie wearer often has an artist's mind, a respect for tradition and yet a renegade at the same time.

Le Noeud Papillon bow ties combine the very best in design with the highest quality fabrics. Their products are unique and are made in small quantities to provide the wearer with a sense of exclusivity.

We hope you like our collection now available at Strand Hatters.
