A Look at The Foldaway

Christys' London Fur Felt Fedora - The Foldaway at HartfordYork.com - ImageThis fur felt fedora by Christys’ London has been quietly racking up five-star reviews, and being one of my all-time favorite hats, I thought I’d share in the celebration:

  • David from Little Rock calls The Foldaway a great hat, saying: I love the hat. This purchase was a replacement for my old and well worn one that was ready for retirement.
  • DRS says it’s “as good as the first time.” Meaning? “My purchase from HY of the Christy’s Foldaway trilby is my second such purchase, having lost the first in a NYC cab. Still the best.”
  • Martin G. of New York concurs, calling the fedora “A very fine hat. I like the fact that it can be shaped and it is not rigid. Sizing is accurate. This is my first day wearing it and confidence is high.”
  • In California, Christopher C. posted this review: “I bought this hoping it would look as good on me as it did in the picture. I was pleased. Since it is a foldaway, it is thinner and more casual looking than a standard fur felt hat. It is still quite striking.”
  • Dale C. says: “I like to take a hat when I travel, but they always end up getting crushed in the aircraft overhead bin. This one rolls up nicely and fits in my carry on or blazer pocket. It sometimes requires a bit of manipulation to get it back to the desired shape, but this is a very small issue for the convenience of a fine fur felt fedora roll-up.”
  • His “favorite hat by far”, R.B. from South Carolina posts: “I now have two fur felt fedoras for winter wear. This is far and away the better of the two! It only comes in Burma so I wear it with greens and browns. If they had the same hat in Grey to wear with blues and blacks, I’d get it and give my other fur felt away.”
  • Gary M. finds The Foldaway versatile, saying: “I’ve had this had for at least three years. You really can crush it, or roll it up, Then “re-inflate” it, reshape it, and it’s ready to go. It can assume a variety of shapes. Its only drawback is that it is limited in how dressy it can look. After few years the re-shaping makes it look a bit shabby, but it still works great as a less formal hat. I’m still wearing it that way.”

Thanks, as always, for making HartfordYork.com your go-to online hat store and for taking the time to provide feedback. Very much appreciated.

Hats and the State of Your Affairs

Men's Dress Hats - Men's Borsalino Beaver Fur Felt Fedora Hat - The Stingy UltimoIf you have that sinking feeling that all may not be well in the loaded arena of personal relationships, (but as usual you have no idea what you’ve done), it may simply be time for a new hat.

Women like men who wear hats – they find ’em sexy. I know this by extensive personal experience (well, if I were a woman, I’d find myself incredibly attractive in my Borsalino). Anyway, it’s not just my opinion. I was reading one of those women’s magazines (at the check-out! I was bored!) and a reader survey in it confirmed that most women find men who wear hats to be exciting, confident and fun to be around.

That’s why you can take a guy like Pete Doherty, who isn’t a man you’d immediately label “handsome”, slap a fedora on his head, and he lands a supermodel girl friend. Look at Brad Pitt. He didn’t even wear hats until he wed Angelina Jolie–now he’s sporting fedoras and newsboys all the time, in an obvious attempt to spice up his rather bland blond look and keep the old spark bright.

So there it is, men. Forget couples counseling. Get yerself a hat.

Thanks for reading,
