Fedora is not just a hat, it's a headgear with History. It’s roots lie in greek word meaning ‘gift from god’. In Prohibition era America, It became Synonymous to Gangsters, whereas nowadays it’s more likely to be seen atop the bones of raffish creative types, concealing a man bun beneath. The fedora is distinguished by its soft felt construction, pinched front, teardrop-shaped crown and a wide brim that straddles the gap between a Stetson and a pork pie. During the Hollywood golden age, Gary Grant and Humphery Bogart used to sport Fedora hats. In more recent times, however, the fedora has amassed a fan club that counts David Beckham, Jude Law and Tinie Tempah among its members.

If Done properly, fedora adds old school charm to your look. These hats don’t usually work with jeans, trainers or sweatshirts.

Try it with Collared Shirt and Tailored Trousers.
