The mens fedora is an iconic style perhaps more well known to the majority of the population than any other style. It's what Indiana Jones wore, it's what your father wore, it is THE hat to have. Back in the early 20th century it was highly uncommon to see a gentleman withouth one on his head in daily life. Even the baseball cap today isn't as abundant as this hat was in it's heyday.
The trend has changed however and while many people speculate, or point to, president Kennedy as the downfall of the style and hats in general in everyday life there were many reasons that attributed to the fact. While Earlier in the century, mid to larger brimmed fedoras were the style to have, nowadays the stingy fedora reigns king. The stingy fedora is essentially the same variation of crown types but with a shorter brim size, in the neighborhood of 1-3 inches. This compact look is more at home today and is more comfortable for people because it feels like it stands out less. That being said, here at Hats Unlimited we carry all styles to keep the style going strong.
