What Does the Mens Fedora Hat Look Like?The mens fedora is defined by three main parts: a wide brim, tear-drop pointed crown that is either pinched to a sharper point or with more subtle indentations on either side, and the hat band, usually with some kind of bow. The fedora hat is usually made of felt, fur, or straw. Some hat historians and hat enthusiasts will tell you the name fedora really comes from the material the hat is made of felt, which means most any hat you find today is really a fedora.
Where Did the Fedora Come From?The fedora first appeared in a play by the same name, fedora, in 1891. It was a take on a similar hat worn by German leaders in the 19th century called the Homburg. But the hat really gained popularity in the 1920's and reached its peak of adoption in the 1950's. It somehow became indelibly tied to the prohibition era and the rise of gangster culture because in gangster movies glorifying the culture the bad guys always wore them. In reality, both good and bad guys wore these hats. They were a must-have accessory, and as important to an outfit as a coat and tie. Any man with sense of style was rarely seen without one.
What are the Different Types of Mens Fedoras?There are many different types of fedoras for men, almost as many as there are styles. The hat is usually defined by the type of pinch in the front crown and in the center top of the crown, along with the brim. There are sharp pinches and no pinches, and deep or shallow creases. Some types of fedora designs include the wide brim, pointed pinch, center dent, Dick Tracy and Indiana Jones.
There are fedoras specific to certain regions of the world like the New York and the European Fedoras. Trilby, a type of fedora, is popular in the UK and typically has a thinner brim but the same shape as the wider brimmed fedora.
