    I have been in the hat trade for quite a few decades...and if anyone is any doubt...Boon and Lane (Steve and Al) make the most durable and accurate (best) hat blocks in the World...they understand
    fitting..material to be blocked and all the other stuff we just take for granted..Don't waste your money on anyone else.

    Great blocks. Just need to decide which ones.
    Noticed a picture with Mary Jane Baxter in it. I met her by chance in a London store. It is a small world. Thanks for the impromptu tour.

  • arlette burgaud (Wednesday, April 27 16 02:43 pm BST)

    My new block is perfect. As usually all is marvelous and the shape so close of my dream.
    Bravo
    Arlette

    I had the pleasure of meeting you both last Monday as part of our college class visit and I wanted to thank you again, belatedly, for your time. It was such an insight - the time and process involved
    in the work was amazing and I think we all wanted to smuggle your blocks home.

  • Arlette Burgaud (Thursday, March 20 14 06:57 pm GMT)

    Bravo for this new block it is wonderful! A beautiful work. I’m very happy

  • Martha Lynn (Wednesday, June 05 13 12:16 pm BST)

    I go and visit Steve and Alan every year, after my good friend and milliner Aileen Keogan introduced me to them. The blocks that Steve and Alan make are of the highest quality and their attention to
    detail is second to none. They always have beautiful new innovative designs and are happy to work with you on your own designs ideas. I always look forward to taking a trip to the factory, the
    hundreds of blocks under years of dust is fascinating. I love all my Boon and Lane Blocks they are like pieces of art! thank you Steve and Alan!

  • Siana Yewdall (Monday, May 20 13 04:44 pm BST)

    Thank you very much for the blocks received this morning. Of course, I am absolutely thrilled with them.
    Thank you and look forward to the next ones.

  • Jane Taylor Millinery (Friday, May 10 13 04:11 pm BST)

    Always a pleasure to work with- even delightful at 6am when Ive picked up blocks. Beautiful shapes and very good workmanship and quality! Ive bought wood and metal blocks and Boon & Lane always
    deliver perfect results in speedy time!

  • Christal (Wednesday, May 01 13 04:57 pm BST)

    WOW that was fast. I was expecting to get a notice that they
    were on their way, but not one that they would be here. They are
    lovely…im so excited I cant begin to tell you. Of course the fedora
    is amazing and the guys will love it…the percher…wow, Im almost
    afraid to use the block its just so pretty and so pristine. As always
    you do great work over there. I cant wait to see what comes out of
    these beauties!!!

  • Carol DeMarti (Sunday, April 21 13 01:51 am BST)

    I am so happy that a shop like this still exists. Your blocks and tools are amazing. Saving my money to place an order.

  • Naomi Goodsir (Tuesday, April 02 13 04:04 pm BST)

    Alan and Steve are two incredible craftsmen. Their blocks both in metal and wood - made the old fashioned way, using steady hands and sharp eyes are works of art, with their skills of interpretation
    showing no limits.
    I love their workshop full of old blocks, inspiration with a touch of sawdust. It reeks of heart and soul. Two wonderful guys doing amazing work!

  • Jane Smith (Monday, April 01 13 10:49 am BST)

    Please tell Allan I am so pleased with the little top hat section block. The brim is sleek and top just the size I wanted.

    Sincerely,

    Jane

  • arlette burgaud (Friday, March 29 13 08:34 am GMT)

    This 28 March - 3 weeks after my order - in the grey Paris’s morning day I’d received my first block from Boon & Lane and when I’d seen it, I’ve seen « la vie en rose ». I never imagine
    that a block can be exactly the shape I’d in my head because it’s a special order. But also it’s a very beautiful piece of art. The wood, the signature, the logo, my name on it… all is « haute
    couture ». To work with it will be a great pleasure and help me to do hats so beautiful as my block.

  • Kate Betts (Thursday, March 28 13 08:01 pm GMT)

    Thanks Steve, I'm delighted with my new block. It does exactly what I wanted it to.
    Best,
    Kate

  • Josie Tucker (Thursday, March 21 13 02:13 pm GMT)

    LOVE LOVE YOUR WORK! I've been Cyber stalking for a year now, saving to buy but can't pick just one. I love your work. Exceptional and unique like my work!!

  • Wayne Artmann (Sunday, March 17 13 07:24 pm GMT)

    Boon & Lane....words can not discribe their work. But if I had to pick just one....Art. Pure Art created by real artist! Thank you both for such amazing hat blocks!
    Cant wait to order more.

  • Wendy Innes (Friday, February 15 13 10:01 am GMT)

    We are seriously impressed by the turn around time on 2 very urgent blocks delivered within one week !
    Many thanks to the team at Boon and Lane and our local hat manufacturer Walter Wright Ltd for faciliting our demanding time scales.

  • Justin Smith (Monday, February 11 13 09:04 pm GMT)

    There is a dodgy looking client in a brown coat on the scrapbook!!!

    Alan & Steve are LEGENDS..... I can not thank them enough..... What would I do without them??

    Thank you again.

  • Dillon Wallwork (Wednesday, February 06 13 07:32 pm GMT)

    just collected some more new wood blocks, can't wait to turn them into beautiful hats.
    Steve and Alan never fail to deliver -

  • Awon Golding (Tuesday, February 05 13 07:06 pm GMT)
