Modern Fedora Hats and Flat Caps for Men

by Chris

Just recently, I bought two new headgears – a fedora hat and a flat cap.

Fedora Hats

You might think that wearing a Fedora hat will make you look like an “Illustrado” during Rizal’s time or probably one of the Backstreet Boys in the 90’s, but think again. This modern straw-made hat has one feature which separates it from all others – that is, having a sort of lace or band around it.

What outfit goes well with this? A white button-up shirt (polo) and a pair of dark trousers or any office attire. Definitely sleek and surely a standout.

Flat Caps

Flat caps have also been existing for as long as I can remember. But what’s the difference from the old ones compared to this one? It’s probably the design of the prints and the type of fabric used. It used to be that this type of cap is for casual outfit but this time, it can also be worn with your office clothes.

If you want to look different from the rest or you are simply having a bad hair day brought about by a new haircut, then try these on. It can really make your day! So tell me, which of these two have you worn and how was it?

It’s a straw hat, not a fedora. But still, pretty snazzy.

angelo – LOL. But you know, I actually admire pacman. Magaling na boksingero na, may sense of style pa! astig!

OneTamad – thanks for that. I’m not sure though because it looks like a fedora and a straw hat at the same time. πŸ˜€

Personally..i not a big fan of Hats..
But it doesn’t mean i don’t admire the people who can really pull it off..
One thing i can say about hats.. Make sure along with the outfit is the confidence!

I love the Fedora cap… will buy one soon

I’d rather buy a fedora from here… http://www.hornetshats.com

I have a Christy’s Adventurer fedora which is, in my opinion, a real fedora compared to the fedoras being sold here. It’s pricey, but worth it.

Fedoras can be made of straw, wool, rabbit fur or beaver fur… Beaver being the most expensive and durable.

[…] look in men’s style and clothing and perhaps that is the very reason why we are seeing Fedora hats […]

Where can I find this hat?

I’ve been wearing a black flat cap for years now. It’s great for sun protection and it looks great! I got a lot of compliments from it. I guess it fits my style and look. I would like to try a Fedora hat but I don’t know where to buy a good quality hat. I know that our local clothing stores sell fedoras but I would like to have other options. Hats should make a comeback!

Mike – Have you tried the accessories section of department stores like SM?
