The other day I took advantage, not for the first time, of the 15% discount offered to readers of Mass of Ages in Laird Hats. The have a branch in Covent Garden, 10 minutes' walk from the LMS office: 23 New Row (link to map). I'm delighted with my new, fur felt 'Signature' trilby; it is a fantastic shop, reassuringly busy on a Saturday afternoon.
The other hat I've bought here was a panama: that was in 2012. Two seasons is a very respectable life-time for a hard-working panama hat, I now need a replacement. I'll be back to Laird when they have their summer stock in.
This is another reason to get your hands on a copy of Mass of Ages; if your parish priest doesn't have them, for free, at the back of his church, ask him to drop the LMS office a line ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). The advert for Laird, with the discount offer, is on p16.
