Hats and Style

From felted fedora to sailor hats, this season it is all about the hats. Men’s hats are practical, comfortable and can make you look stylish. They do not only look good on you but can also protect you from the sun, rain, and wind. They can also make you look taller and hide any imperfection on the head or premature balding. Mens hats can make you feel better! They are eternally stylish.


A fedora is always made with high quality material and  has either a “teardrop” or a “center dent” crown, and these ornamentations are pressed an inch or two into the crown of the hat. Although a short, or “stingy”, brim has been popular from time to time, a classic fedora has a brim between two and two and a half inches. 


Unlike the fedora, which has a movable, or “snap” brim, the trilby is made so that the brim is permanently fixed down, and usually the brim is set at a much more severe angle than the fedora. The crown of the trilby is the most identifying feature, and is angled inward more from the brim to the crown than the fedora, and the crown itself is either much taller but usually much shorter than the fedora.


Panama hats actually originated from Ecuador. It is a brimmed straw hat that is made from the leaves of a palm-like plant called Carludovica palmata. A panama hat is usually white or light colored and has a wide brim.


The porkpie is a small round hat that has a flat top and a narrow brim is always turned up while the crown has a crease along its perimeter. This hat was named pork pie since it looks similar to the British pork pie dish.


A boater hat is made of stiff sen-nit straw. It has a straight brim with a flat top and a wide band. This summer hat is typically a favorite choice of boaters, sailors, and rowers. It looks terrific when matched with a summer suit
