What Style Category is your Hat?

Hartford York Winter Hats - Men's Borsalino Wool Newsboy Cap - The Mario with EarflapsMost people do have a style category, you know, even if they don’t realize it. Unconsciously or otherwise, many of us pretty much stick to a general style of dress: western, haute, old school or trucker. We vary within the genre, of course–casual and dress western become two different looks–but the overall cast is there.

Winter hats allow a bit more leeway to this rule because of the double function they fill: fashion and warmth. In other words, if it’s just too cold for the preferred fur felt cowboy hat, the look (and feel) of a shearling winter cap makes a pretty acceptable substitute.

For guys who swear by newsboys no matter the season, thank Borsalino for The Mario with Earflaps!

Keep on truckin,

Manly Fur Hats

Hartford York Fur Hats - Men's Muskrat TrooperDavid Coleman of The New York Times wrote that “. . . just a few years ago, the consensus among men, even fashionable men, was that fur was off limits — deemed ostentatious, unmanly, immoral, for starters.”

What’s changed this perception he goes on in his article Men in Pelts is that “. . . designers are choosing restraint, even suggesting utility and manliness.”

He’s got that right. I’m nothing if not manly 100% muskrat fur hat from Crown Cap of Canada. Yeah, fur may be fluffy and soft and luxurious, but when it’s designed as simply the best headgear for cold weather wear, fur’s just hot.

Thanks for reading,
