Block of the Month June 2015 – BB85

Every month we offer a discount on one of our popular designs and this month it is the very popular peaked brim block BB85.

This very stylish peaked brim block is designed to work with our multiblocks allowing you to screw on any multiblock tip of your choice. We think it works very well with the full dome MB7 as you can see below in the picture of a hat made by Z Malan from New York.

The block features a hollowed base allowing you to fold the material round and inside creating a folded edge rather than having to bind it afterwards. If you like you can cut it short just to create a hem or block it right inside creating a double sided brim which goes right up into the headband of the finished hat.

BB85 – Peak Brim Block


Inspired by our popular CB107, we decided to turn it into a multiblock brim for use with the full range of tips. Featuring a fully hollowed underside, you can fold and pin right into the bottom to give a double sided peak, or perhaps with straw you could fold in just to give a hem to the bottom edge. Shown here with an MB7 tip. You can also use it with any of the extensions to make a taller crown more like CB107.

  • A personal service

    Dedicated to providing you with the best hat blocks you can buy - here at Guy Morse-Brown, our focus is firmly on working with you to make your own personal creations.

    To make things with your hands is a fundamental part of human nature and whether it is the weaver, the felt maker, the block maker, or you the milliner, we are all part of a process that culminates in something that is more than just an object to admire - it is a statement, an expression that enriches the life of the wearer and creator alike.

    We feel that the parts of the process shouldn't be completely separated so we want to work with you to enable us both to share in it all. For that reason you won't find online ordering here on our website but you will find a huge range that shows that almost anything is possible. It's too simple to just add products to a cart; we want to keep alive the personal communication between block maker and milliner that used to be so essential. Get in touch with us and share your ideas, let us know what you want to make and we're ready to serve.

    They are almost too beautiful to use.

    I'm more than happy- everything is just perfect. I've worked on many different blocks but I think those are the best quality I've ever seen and now I feel like I've just got an early birthday gift :). Thank You very much!
