attention here besides Biltmore's Montecristi Pinch Front
, including The Snap Brim
, an elegant Christys' London Panama fedora, made in the USA, with a two inch snap brim, grosgrain trim and sweatband. Kangol brings a Panama hat this season, called The Buckle Arnold
. It's a snap brim fedora
with a contrast colored brim and vibrant red trim with brass buckle. There's also The Cubano
, a Scala "C" crown fedora
in Panama straw with a generous brim and grosgrain fabric band with bow.
Vented men's hats
always make good warm weather choices. We've got just such a hat from Biltmore, called The Abby Road
, a fabulous shantung straw fedora with open weave venting, snap brim, leather sweatband and grosgrain trim with tonal overlay. The Liberation
is a new vented toyo fedora
from the Carlos by Carlos Santana collection. It features a pinch front, tie print trim with guitar pin and stingy bound edge brim. Another Santana hat with a vented open weave is a Panama fedora
called The Shifter
. The woven brim is in a contrast color and the trim has an Indian print overlay. You'll catch the breeze in style with this hat.
If it's cool you want, take a look at The Sinamay/Hemp Fedora
from Stacy Adams. This is an incredibly lightweight summer hat in a blend of sinamay straw and hemp. The pinch front fedora with two-inch brim is trimmed with a fancy textured ribbon, Stacy pin and feather. Another sinamay straw hat
is offered by Carlos Santana. Called The Sleek
, it's part of the Carlos by Carlos Santana collection and it too is a truly cool hat. The brim is bound and stingy at 1 1/2 inches, and the ribbon trim features a Santana guitar pin.
For a linen walking hat
, JB Stetson brings you The Linen Blend Fedora
. It's got a very stingy brim and handsome windowpane pattern and (until it's sold out) is being offered in your choice of Charcoal or Natural. Goorin has a new stroller fedora
on tap too. In a blend of cotton and polyester, The Josh Kerr Stroller
is a stingy brim hat with a narrow brim, contrast band and button. The Jackman
is a good hat to have when you're traveling. From the Bailey Hats Poet Travel Collection, it's a packable and very lightweight wool fedora
with a casual 2 1/2 inch brim and narrow leather trim.
No list of fedoras
is complete without at least a cursory mention of hats from Dobbs. New this season is a Dobbs hat called The DeSoto
. I really like the fancy band on this handsome venetian milan braid hat. It's a pinch front fedora with a 2 1/4 inch wide brim and it carries the Dobbs pin, a mark of distinction. Customers love their Dobbs hats. Read the review for The Naples
, a lightly ventilated Florentine milan braid snap brim fedora
. For example, Robert S. from Texas says: "I have this hat; it's one of your better hats. I get asked about it all the time: let me have that hat; sell me that hat; where did I get that me; who makes that hat. I need to get me another one real soon." A customer from Florida is just as enthusiastic about his Dobbs milan straw fedora
, The Parker
, saying "this is my all time favorite! I have received numerous compliments on this and it fits perfectly and looks fantastic on me!"
