The Stitch Premium Headwear line of men's hats out of NYC includes some real beauts! In black, there's a wool felt fedora called Morningside 4, that features a wool pugaree band and brim with bound edge, while the Morningside 3 is a wool felt fedora that also boasts a plaid band and solid edging on the brim, but the hat itself is in a great olive shade. The shape of a pork pie hat (one version called
Bleecker 2 and the other Bleecker 4) is very sharp and is offered here by Stitch in dark brown wool felt as well as oyster tweed. The hats in this case each feature a silk pugaree trim of a patterned ribbon and bow, and again each hat's brim is bound for a nice finished look.
The final duo of Stitch hats for cooler weather wear are also made from wool felt. Called Varick 4 and Varick 5, they are fedoras with wool fabric underbrims and trimmed with leather bands. The Varick 4 is offered in khaki, while the Varick 5 is a brown tweed hat. All Stitch hats are made in New York, one at a time, with attention to detail that is as old-fashioned as the hat-making equipment and wooden blocks used to shape each one.
My advice to you: compare each pair of Stitch hats carefully, then buy both.
