All of Fat Hat’s clothing is designed in Quechee; the owner, Joan, creates all the patterns. The clothes are then cut and sewn on 37th St. in New York by a team of seamstresses, and their new Simply Summer line is sewn in California.
The make 30,000 garments a year and sell them to 200-250 boutiques around the country.
The best part? The fabric is all American made. I got to feel a shirt from the cotton down collection, which is made from cotton from North Carolina, and it was sooooo soft. I just want to let it hug me. As someone who’s always cold, this collection immediately went on my wish list to wear in fall, winter, and spring. You know – most of the year!
If it has the F.H Clothing label. It’s made right here.
People who dread laundry, rejoice! F.H Clothing makes clothing that’s machine washable. You can wear them all the time and they still wear like new.
Whether you like trendy, classic, or unique, F.H Clothing has them all. Their number one best seller is the spantaloon, leggings with a skirt attached. Brilliant idea. You can find them in black and sometimes with a pattern or black legging with solid color skirt. People love that they’re comfy, modest yet flattering, and great for active everyday wear. Reviewers on the store’s Facebook page rave over them: “Just received the pair of Spantaloons I ordered. Most flattering piece of clothing ever! L O V E T H E M ! ! !” and “One of my favorite places to shop. Period. Love and live in their clothes! Everyone should own a pair of spantaloons.”
I love the outfit ideas displayed throughout the store. One I saw was really unique: a light gray and white top with a pop of red and black at the sleeves.
Not only do they look great, but feel great and you’ll feel great in them. I felt fabric that was soft, airy, and light when I visited in the spring.
Since spring has a bit of winter in it around here, they also had hoodies and other items that had more weight to them. I looked at the sale room with items from their winter line and enjoyed the draping feel of their sweaters and tops.
If it has the F.H Clothing label on it, it’s created and put together right here in the U.S, but F. H Clothing also has a range of other great brands as well.
Find base pieces that fit into your wardrobe effortlessly that you’ll want to wear again and again.
I’ll cuddle on the couch with any of these. I bet the gray or cream sweater would look great over the dress on the right. What a nice flowing dress.
I love this selection of fun block pattern items. The sweaters look so cozy.
F.H Clothing also has a men’s line of clothing. Think comfortable, everyday wear.
You can also find jewelry, funny cards, socks, scarves, soaps and lotions, hats, purses, kids stuffed animals, flasks, and paper lanterns.
F.H Clothing’s mission is to make clothing that you can feel yourself in and they can customize and tailor an item for you. Sleeves too long, not a problem. Need something shortened or a different size. They got you covered. Want a replacement item from years ago – they can work with you.
This store makes me think of that sweater I had long ago that I was sad to get rid of because it was so comfortable and had it for years. It felt a part of so many memories. They make clothing that makes you feel like that.
The owner says it best:
“My basic idea still holds strong: if you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing, you’ll be comfortable with who you are. For years I was a “layer dresser”. Now I’ve dropped a layer or two, loosened my look, searched for delicious fabrics that feel wonderful on my body and finally realized that other than the soft, easy look of well made clothing all I needed to feel terrific is a fabulous pair of shoes and a great attitude.
After all these years it strikes me that we’re not making and selling clothing at all…we’re selling our sense of humor, our independent Vermont lifestyle and our comfortable attitude about dressing… clothing is just how we’ve packaged it!”
