It is a world renowned fact that men look handsome in hats, yet the tradition of men wearing hats seemingly has fallen down the wayside. I think this is great shame as hats add a certain sophistication to an outfit, especially suits. I’m not talking about caps or beanie’s but the traditional fedora, trilby and bowler hats. Here are some of the great hat lovers who made this trend:
Frank Sinatra and The Rat Pack
Jon Hamm as Don Draper in Mad Men
As you can see from these images there is a certain kind of glamour that is evoked by the uniform of the hat, whether it is the status that went with being a great singer, a gangster, a well known actor or being a politician, these peoples styles were certainly enhanced by the hats they wore.
These hats add a suave essence to the classic styles of the times and I think it’s about time these traditons came back around. Fashion as they say always goes in circles, so men I think it’s time to get yours hats out! Here are some modern icons who sport the hat trend:
Johnny Depp – hot! need I say anymore? He is an avid hat wearer and has mastered the hat trend, modernising the look by wearing a smart hat with casual wear. Brad Pitt has been known to rock many types of hat but mainly sticks to summer straw hats and experiments with colours and styles.
Pete Doherty despite the many drug scandals deserves some credit for his personal style. He is the first person in a long time to style it up with suits and hats and bought this look back on to the music scene, bravo Pete! I personally am loving Bruno Mars’s style having only been in the spotlight for the last two years, he has created a niche style, not only with his music but with his style too. He is often seen wearing Fedora’s and dressing smart with suits, shirts and blazers.
How handsome does Hugh Jackman look in a hat? He really pulls off the hat trend for the middle aged gent and he does it well. So here it is, I hope you like the inspirational looks and I look forward to seeing more men in hats! XOXO
