Ne-Yo Tips His Hat to Lancaster PA’s Bollman Hat Co

by thiryj

CPBJ Reports (and I am not kidding about this):   Lancaster, PA Bollman Hat Co. will produce a line of custom hats designed by R&B singer and songwriter Ne-Yo, the company said today.

Under an exclusive licensing agreement, the Adamstown company will market two hat collections a year beginning this fall in the U.S., Europe and Japan.

The hats will be marketed under the brand name “Francis Ellargo,” which Ne-Yo plans to expand into a full fashion line, Bollman said.

Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr., has released four albums since 2006, two of which reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts. In March, he will be inducted into the Headwear Hall of Fame in New York City.
