Men's Felt Hats
When it comes to classic style and vintage flair, there are many accessories that fit the bill, one of them being men's felt hats. This iconic style has been popular since its beginnings in 14th century Europe and is often adopted by present day stage and screen stars as a striking gentleman's look.
The felt hat has an alluring quality, finishing off an outfit in style whilst being reminiscent of days gone by, particularly between the 1920 and 1950s where felt hats would have been a far more regular sight. It is a look that still holds the same appeal when it is brought to life in the modern day.
From Winston Churchill to Charlie Chaplin, famous felt hat wearers are littered throughout history and their quintessential style still inspires, long after they've gone.
Felt Hat Styles
One of the most well-known men's felt hat styles is the fedora. Recognised by its wide brim, contoured centre dent and usually a ribbon trim detail, the men's fedora felt hat is one of the best loved felt hat styles around and is a versatile choice for many occasions.
Other popular felt hat styles include bowler and derby hats , designs that add a formal flavour to your look. The 1920s inspired trilby hat is another take on the fedora style, with a narrower, slightly-upturned brim.
Another undoubted classic is the felt top hat. Usually reserved for formal occasions such as Ascot or as a special choice for a wedding day, the felt top hat has a circular brim and tall middle, making it the most formal hat choice for a gentleman.
Dark colours are often the most sought after styles. Black and brown hats can be stylishly accented with lighter trimmings and ribbon details, teaming smartly with tailored tweed, or bringing an edgy touch to your smart casual look.
