A Tribute to Timeless Fall Headwear Styles, Inspired by Iconic Hollywood Films
In tribute to time-honored fall style, we look back at a few of our favorite Hollywood icons who made headwear intrinsic to their look.
Western x Workwear
As Jett Rink in the 1956 film Giant, James Dean makes the scene with a classic western hat with a rolled brim, perched nonchanlantly on the back of his head. Bonus points for the styling with a well-worn workshirt and pinstripe vest. Nail the spirit of his look with our Bronco Western and Cass Jacket.
A Fresh Angle on the Fedora
The unforgettable Ingrid Bergman steals the show in Hitchcock’s 1946 spy film noir Notorious. Her charming co-star is Carry Grant, but the scene with the angled black fedora and camel suit is the truly stylish partnership that caught our eye. Try our Joanna Felt Hat for a love affair of your own.
Baggy Brood x Button-Down Shirt
In the 1973 classic, The Sting, Robert Redford works the ultimate con as the Depression-era grifter, John “Kelly” Hooker with a slouchy brood that perfectly suits his cool, poker-faced demeanor. We also like his crisp checks. For fall we’d suggest this great-looking Brood with our Bowery Flannel.
Fedora x Monochrome Cool
The OG of gender-bending style, the Berlin-born actress was masterful at making a sleek suit her own and a standout topper was a key element. While a white suit may not be your everyday go-to, we love the thought of taking monochrome casual. Rock the look with our Leigh Felt Fedora.
Field Proper x Serape (AKA: Big Scarf)
Shot in Spain in 1964, the spaghetti western, A Fistful of Dollars, was Clint Eastwood’s first starring role. If Men’s street style from Fall Fashion Week tells us anything it’s that Eastwood’s look is totally on-point. A sleek western hat with a strong center crease makes a memorable impression with a big, bold scarf.
Fedora x Checks
A true cultural icon who sets the bar for talent and style, when we think of Sinatra we think of great hats. While the blue-eyed crooner’s main go-to was a classic fedora with a wide band, we think he’d approve of the sharp updated style of our Gain Fedora with your favorite flannel or patterned top.
Fedora X A Classic Combo
When it comes to iconic dance scenes, the ‘Madison’ dance sequence in Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 film Band of Outsiders is a definitive moment in French New Wave cinema. The charm of the dance, and the catchy beat of the track, convey the duality of persona and style with the eye-catching cool of Anna Karina’s hat. It’s perfectly juxtaposed against her classic sweater and skirt. Make a scene of your own with our Messer Fedora.
