Mens Fedora Is An Iconic Hat Style That Won't Die!

Mar 1, 2008
It seems that this simple but good looking man's hat has never gone out of style. In the movies, we see the gangster fedoras. The private eyes usually wore a black fedora. Don't leave out the G-Men. Elliot Ness and company all wore fedoras. Depending upon your age, you may be wondering what a fedora is and why is it so special? Fedoras are a soft felt hat that is creased lengthways down the crown and pinched in the front on both sides. There are comparable hats with this C-crown (known as a groove for the head in the top of the crown) are occasionally called fedoras.

My dad wore a mens fedora hat. You just never saw him without one. I can remember putting it on and feeling special. However, my dad always kept me and his fedora under a watchful eye to make sure no harm came to his hat. My dad had a love for fedora hats which was evident by the dark brown color for winter and a lighter tan or even a straw fedora in the summer. It wasn't a cowboy hat. I can still remember him always tipping his hat when passing a lady on the street or sidewalks. He was a gentleman.

Have you ever participated in a hat auction? Hat auctions are fun, easy and you just might save some money. They offer a chance to buy a new fedora at a price that you decide is good for you. If you want a mans fedora, then try out a fedora auction.

When Jack Kennedy was sworn in as President, he did not wear a fedora. Oh my, he broke years of tradition. I guess a lot of men thought if the President didn't have to wear one, they didn't need to either. Many people have thought this timeless hat might die out but is still going strong after over 100 years. Fedoras are made out of wool, felt, and straw or combination of all the above.

It is funny that baseball caps or beanies are very popular but the iconic fedora emulates American is right behind them. This old hat may have come from a Victorian Sardou's drama presented in Paris in 1882 but it still says All American. The Western hat is similar to the Fedora. Another popular hat is the top hat. All in all, the fedora is still the king of style.
