Construction hard hats have been a staple of the British summer for decades.
The style has been popular since the 1920s, but it is becoming increasingly popular this year, particularly among children and the disabled.
As part of the BBC Sport ‘Hard Hats for the Summer’ series, BBC Sport has created a compilation of some of the best construction hard hat designs, from the 1950s to the present.
The series features some of Britain’s best hard hat makers, including Paul Williams, James Bowers and Steve Wright.
Paul Williams says his designs are inspired by the look of his favourite hat, the one worn by the character The Wurlitzer, in the film The Big Lebowski.
“The Wurlitzers hat was my favourite hat and I wanted to recreate it,” he said.
“It’s a classic hat with a bit of a retro feel, so I wanted it to look the way it looks in the original film.”
Paul Williams said he loves the look and feel of the classic hard hat.
“I have a very soft, velvety feel to it.
I like to have a soft, plush feel, which is what I try to capture in my hard hats.”
Paul said he has been a fan of the hat for many years and it has helped him to achieve a good working life.
“For the last 10 years I’ve been very busy, working on a film and a book.
But I love it,” Paul said.
He said he had a good time creating the designs, which include a retro-inspired look for the top, which features a retro stamp on the brim and a retro pin on the bottom.
“You can really see how I love the look.
The hat is so well made and I think it looks like it has been worn in a movie,” he added.
The hard hat’s most famous look is the famous “Big Lebinski” scene, where The Wuzziters hat is stolen by The Big Ears, and the two men exchange hats and the hat falls to the ground.
Paul said his favourite part of making the hat was to find inspiration for the designs.
“We look at a lot of hats, but we never go for a certain style, we go for what the hats have done before,” he explained.
“There are certain designs that we thought were funny and some designs we thought had a certain feel to them.” “
Paul has worked with a number of hard hat manufacturers in the past, including Williams, who said he always made the hats to a specification of the style that he wanted. “

“Paul was a fantastic craftsman and we always made him a hat that we liked,” Williams said.
The ‘Big Lebois’ scene in The Big Sleeps, which was filmed in the 1950ies, has inspired Paul’s work for years.
“That scene has become such a favourite that it’s become my favourite movie scene,” Paul Williams added.
Paul and Williams said they both felt the original Big Lebonis hat was a classic and the hats look as if it has stood the test of time.
“He was such a great craftsman.
He was a real craftsman, very good at creating the hats,” Paul explained.
Paul also shared a few of his work with us in his blog post, which you can read in full below.
Paul’s hats for The Big Bois and The Big Reel (1950s) Paul Williams has worked as a craftsman for many decades.
He has been creating hard hats since the 1950’s.
“These hats have stood the tests of time and are still my favourites,” Paul wrote.
“In fact, the ones I make now are my favourite hats I have ever made.”
Paul wrote that he always makes the hats for a specification, whether it’s the design he wants to have on a hat or the size.
“Each time I make a hat I look back at the previous hat I made and think what the heck would have been the design on the previous one?” he said, explaining why he loves to work with hard hats.
“If I wanted a new hat I would make one myself,” Paul added.
Paul said the hat has stood up to many test runs, and he is a fan. “
When I make the hats I always go for the original design and I look at the hat and say what would it be like on the movie?”

“This hat was made for the movie The Biglebois,” Paul revealed.
