The brief history of men’s fedora

The term “fedora” first popped up in 1891 thanks to the legendary actress Sarah Bernhardt who portrayed Princess Fédora Romazov in a play by Victorien Sardou. On the stage, Bernhardt rocked a manly, soft brimmed hat with a center crease. But it is not until the Edward, Prince of Wales started wearing the same style in 1924 that fedora became a full-blown trend.

The style breakdown

  • Material
    The classic fedora is made of high-quality felt derived from rabbit fur, cashmere or wool. We also have modern straw hats of the same style. The lighter material is perfect for summer.
  • Crown
    The main trademark of any fedora. Due to the soft material, the crown can be shaped, pinched, and creased however you like to achieve the desired look.
  • Brim
    The possibilities here are infinite! Fedora brims may differ in width, finishes, and positions. The edge may be blunt-cut and unfinished, sewn or trimmed with a ribbon. Change the angle of the brim to reflect your personal sense of style and flatter your face shape.
  • Decorations
    There is usually a ribbon or a piece of fabric with a bow or a buckle sitting above the brim of a fedora.
