The dress hats for men you see here, in our Fall/Winter 2015 collection, are superb. Take one look at The Mader, a men's dress hat from Bailey, and you're sure to agree. The fur felt fedora has a low profile and pinch-front crown, raw edge snap brim and grosgrain ribbon trim. It's available in your choice of three colors, one being Imperial Blue. What a knock out! Another new dress hat from Bailey is The Olin, and this fedora is also crafted from superior fur felt, featuring a long teardrop crown. The snap brim has a raw edge, and the hat is satin lined and has a handsome trim with a tonal grosgrain ribbon and bow.
Borsalino's dress hat called The Traveller, is another stunning example of the kinds of hats men are wearing these days. The deluxe fur felt fedora made in Italy has an open crown and is almost severe in its simplicity, with a dark ribbon trim. Use the zoom feature on the site to see the texture of the felt; it's really an incredible hat. We've of course brought the classic bowler from Christys' London back this year, which is the epitome of a dress hat that suits every formal every occasion, and we also had to restock that Stetson fur felt fedora called The Barnstormer. This Texas-made dress hat features a slim brim with a raw edge and thin ribbon trim, giving it just a hint of Western flavor.
We've brought back another Stetson dress hat called The Stratoliner as well, the fur felt western dress hat from Stetson that customers call stylish, great looking and luxurious, in addition to The Open Road (which needs no description) and a perennial favorite Stetson hat, The Weekender, a laid-back fur felt hat that's fancy enough to wear to a more casual dress event.
Biltmore returns with a line of fur felt dress hats made in the USA that includes, among others: The Sanford, a fedora with generous snap brim and soft suede finish; The New York, a stingy brim hat with a narrow 1 5/8 inch brim; and The LA, a pork pie hat made from fur felt and featuring that same Rossellini finish that brings out the nap in the fur for an irresistibly soft feel. The Biltmore dress hats ship directly from the manufacturer in Texas, so you'll have to allow a few extra days for delivery, but the wait for your new hat will definitely be worthwhile.
Customer favorites from Santana are back, and include a pinch front fur felt fedora called The Eternal. It's a stingy brim dress hat with fancy grosgrain ribbon trim and embroidered satin lining. The Cosmos is another fur felt fedora from Santana, this one featuring a teardrop crown, embroidered trim with Santana pin and 2 1/8 inch raw edge brim.
When you require the ultimate in dress hats--a top hat--to wear to a formal or gala occasion, we carry a 100% wool felt English Topper with 16 ligne grosgrain trim, double bow, satin lining and two inch bound brim, as well as The Mad Hatter, another version from Scala in wool felt. In the traditional style, it's a top hat that's ready to impress with a bound brim and 24-ligne grosgrain band. As one happy purchaser said of his top hat: "Why should women have all the fun!?!"
