JB Stetson walker called The Linen Blend Fedora
. Available in your choice of Black or Natural, it's a hat with a two inch brim and contrast trim with metal Stetson badge. For an even stingier brim, JB Stetson offers another fedora
in a crisp linen blend. This hat has a brim that measures just 1 1/4 inches and has a self trim with Stetson pin. The fabric is offered in two colors (Natural or Charcoal) and has a fine windowpane pattern.
Also new this season is a walking hat
from Goorin Bros. called The Mr. Giant
. This is a crushable fedora with a slim 1 1/2 inch brim, and it's made from a blend of linen and cotton. There's an interfaced cotton sweatband for added comfort; and the ribbon linen body, contrast brim finish and trim with button as well as the seams with contrast stitching all contribute to make this stingy brim hat a must-have for warm weather wear. Another stroller
from Goorin is called The Josh Kerr Stroller
, and its brim comes in at a very stingy 1 1/4 inches. The grosgrain ribbon band is in a contrast color with button, there's contrast stitching on both the brim and the seams, and the cotton hat body with "A" crown is finished with a striped lining and sweatband in cotton. Cool.
If you're looking for straw walking hats
, Stitch Hats
of NYC has got The Vented 2
, a fedora crafted from ramie straw with a 1 1/2 inch brim, fancy striped ribbon trim and diamond-shaped vents at the side. The Stingy 2
gives a different look in toyo, although the brim is the same size and it too features a striking ribbon band.
Hats made by Borsalino of Italy are beautiful and their 100% cotton walking hat
, The Rex
, is no exception. One satisfied customer calls it a great hat, saying: "It's wonderful to find a casual hat in my size (XXL) that has such clean lines and a small brim. It's soft and comfortable and holds its shape. I love it." From the hatter's Doria line, the trilby features a 1 3/4 inch snap brim, cool mesh lining and grosgrain fabric sweatband.
Everybody walks, all year long, in every kind of weather. Might as well clap on a walking hat
and take the air in style.
