Fedoras

Fedoras (fuller brimmed felt hats) became widely associated with gangsters and Prohibition, a connection coinciding with the height of the hat's popularity between the 1920s and the early 1950s. In the second half of the 1950s, the fedora fell out of favor in a shift towards more informal clothing styles, though Greasers wore the hats with their leather jackets and jeans. By the early 21st century, the fedora had become a symbol of hipsters, and later men's rights activists.

THE FEDORA: In the USA the Fedora has become a generic term for the fuller brimmed felt hat with dented crown. Whilst Trilby tends to denote its British cousin, purists sometimes draw a distinction between the two with the Fedora sporting a broader brim snapped down at the front. The look became popular following the staging of the French play 'Fedora' written in 1882 for the well-known actress Sarah Bernhardt who wore this new hat style. In the early 20th Century hat took on a more masculine form, crossed the gender divide and earned a reputation as a prohibition Gangster or G-Man's hat – a suave look with a hint of danger that helped to secure its popularity. This is the look of the Christys' Classic Fedora
