This hat is what we consider a true fedora. It is the only wool felt fedora we can find that's quite like this one. Like the 'Blues', it packs, repells and works with the brim up or down. Although, more often than not the brim is worn down in front. It takes the right person, someone creative or someone who wears suspenders maybe. By the way, Fedora is a woman's name and is identified by a C-crown or Teardrop crown. More on that in our Hat Facts section we're working on right now!
