Choose your hat wisely. The lesser known derby or bowler hat can give you a truly fresh and unique style.

Once you have your hat size it is time to shop online for your hat. Start by looking at styles you like and are appealing to you. If you are interested in fedoras, start searching, but do not limit yourself to these types of hats alone.

Remember, some face shapes look better in certain types of hats (see our hat guide for more info). Figure out what your face shape is, and then match it to the proper hat for that shape.

Another use example is the Panama hat. It is the perfect hat for the beach or a tropical vacation. It's lightweight, versatile and highly breathable.

Hats like the derby or bowler, pork pie, and homburg, all have their own unique style and voice. They can be the perfect complement to your look of it is highly unique.
