Hats (and trousers?) off to Olly Murs

Olly Murs has revealed he is desperate to release out his own high street range of hats!

Olly, whose brilliant Heart Skips A Beat is currently at No 1 in the UK Top 40, is well know for his love of all things hat-like.

He even did his own trilby style hat on his recent tour, which he is rather proud of and who can blame him?

Olly said: “We did have some hats on tour. The trilby had an Olly badge on the side and they sold well. But I haven’t been approached by a hat company, which is weird because I’m always getting hats thrown at me. I would love to get into it.”

Where did Olly get his inspiration? Well look no further than Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher!

He added: “Liam’s got it spot on. I wear his Pretty Green label all the time. I’d like to get big companies on board like Selfridges but I’d only do hats that I’d design.”

Funny you should mention your choice of attire Mr Murs, because in other Olly related news Louis Walsh has said he thinks Olly should ditch those rather fitting trousers we’ve all grown to love.

The X Factor judge has mocked Olly over his penchant for wearing tight trousers when he performs on stage. Louis told Heat magazine: “I loved Olly Murs right from his first audition. He is just so nice and loves his music… he’s always smiling, always happy. He just shouldn’t wear those tight trousers!”

Sorry to say Louis, but here at Flecking HQ we have to disagree and will be encouraging Mr Murs to wear his tight trousers as often as possible!
