finished with leather sweatbands and trimmed with grosgrain bands and feathers. Their quality is superb, and the silhouettes flawless.
Stetson brings two new fur felt hats
to the dress hat table this season. The Inwood
is a stingy brim hat with a bound brim, self ribbon trim with a burst of color in the feather. The Hoover
is the second new satin lined fedora
with leather sweatband from Stetson, but this one has a slightly larger two-inch brim and fancy contrast trim, and is offered in the color Caribou. We've brought back the Stetson Stratoliner
, a classic hat first made in the 1940's and re-issued with a teardrop crown and slim grosgrain ribbon trim). The reviews are in on this hat, and read:
- The Stratoliner is a beautiful hat. The fabric is luxurious. Wonderful color.
- The Stratoliner is a great looking, stylish hat. Anyone looking for a fur felt hat need look no further!
- Another great looking hat from Stetson.
- I am a custom hat aficionado, and my Stratoliner is a sweet addition.
- This is a great looking hat!!! I own three of these hats. Stetson is my hat of choice.
Fur felt hats tend to look and feel rich and luxurious too. Take The Peluche
, a pork pie hat
from Biltmore. This remarkably beautiful stingy brim hat is in fur felt with a finish that leaves the nap long and uncombed. One look at The Nitro
, a stingy brim hat from Dobbs, and you're sure to appreciate the beauty of fur felt. Finished with a leather sweatband for added comfort, the brim on this fedora
measures 1 3/4 inches and a grosgrain ribbon with bow, fancy feather and pin make up the handsome trim. Another Dobbs fur felt fedora
is called The Mayor
, and is truly stunning with a silk finish in a color known as Cognac. The satin-lined hat is elegant in its design, and its self trim is decorated with a light line of fancy stitching.
introduces a couple of new hats this season. The Abraxas
is a good-looking fur felt fedora, trimmed with a braided leather band and Abraxas Angel pin and The Essential
, with its center crease and grosgrain ribbon trim with overlay is certainly a fur felt hat
you'll be proud to add to your hat rack.
Traditional styles do well in fur felt of course, like The Golden Pheasant
, a homburg
from Biltmore. This hat is given a velour finish and is quite stunning in its beauty. The hat shape is true, the brim is bound, the trim is tonal and the feather at the bow adds a sedate splash of color. There's also The Bowler
, a classic replica hat from Christys' London. The stiff black bowler
hat is made from the best fur felt money can buy, and it shows. For the most traditional hat of all, the top hat
, take a look at the rendition in fur felt by Christys' London. It's a highly polished melusine top hat in true Edwardian style and it's made in England (as it should be).
Really, there is nothing like fur felt for men's hats
