It may be cold outside here in Northern Europe but this brand new collection from Australia’s The Gold Hatted Lovers has us dreaming of endless summer days by the pool – whilst looking immaculate in 1930s inspired leisure wear, dahling.

The Gold Hatted Lovers is a new label of ethically produced, handmade clothing made by my Sydney based friends Katie-Louise Ford and Tim Nicol. Launched just this week, they have a fabulous new collection inspired by 1930s leisure wear.

“The inspiration for this range is a simple combination of our dream clothing and iconic pieces from the 1930s, which are hard to find, in poor condition, and never the right size,” Tim tells me.

Authentic looking 1930s reproduction pieces are a rarity, especially in men’s wear, so The Gold Hatted Lovers offers something new and fresh for those who love earlier eras of vintage fashion. Says Tim: “We have carefully branded ourselves not to be a ‘repro’ company, rather looking towards the high-end handmade vibe.”

The collection is available in EU sizes 32-42 (UK sizes 4-14) but Tim says they’re hoping to expand the range of sizes in the future. They also offer custom fitting at a fee for Sydney-based babes.

Be sure to check out the 1930s leisure wear collection right on their website. Personally, I’m head over heels in love with the zigzag gown and the yellow flutter sleeve day dress. Me oh my!

My stars, those are some seriously smashing 1930s repro offerings. I’m smitten and really, really must commend this company on including offerings for ladies and chaps alike. I frequently feel like repro brands forget about gentlemen (and/or women who may prefer to borrow from the boys when it comes to their wardrobes) far too often. Thank you for making my knees turn to jelly over these beauties!

Oh dear, did I speak too soon? I just poked around the site and don’t actually see any menswear for sale there. If they don’t offer it, than I revise my previous comment to say that I hope they will one day. They’ve styled the chaps in these photos excellently!
