The Fedora, the accessory of choice in the world of cinema!

The invention of the Fedora shape goes back to Italian Guiseppe Borsalino, the founder of the famous Borsalino millinery, who gave his name to this hat shape. The fedora hat can also be called Borsalino. Fedora refers to all other hats not made by the Borsalino company.

This shape was highly prized by iconic film figures, such as Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca or Jean-Paul Belmondo in Borsalino, who staged Fedora hats magnificently. In the 30s and 40s, the Fedora was worn in many cult gangster films. The Fedora hat then competed with the Trilby shapes worn by the Blues Brothers and even Indiana Jones' Traveller shapes! Once worn as a fashion accessory by the upper class, the Fedora hat brings an assertive style to all your outfits.

How to wear a Fedora hat

Wearing a fedora hat with a suit or blazer is instantly a recognition factor. It's the hat to have in a wardrobe for being dressed up. Choose a fedora with a wider brim to add a masculine edge.

After all, for most of the 20th century, until the 1960s the fedora hat was the law. When John Kennedy took off his hat at his presidential inauguration, men weren't considered dressed without their hats. In that century, the fedora was king (also known as a trilby in Europe) supplanting, in short order, all other styles for men.

Although the style is mainly associated with men, the name "Fedora" comes from the heroine of French playwright Victorien Sardou's drama presented in Paris in 1882. She wore the style of hat that would become the hallmark of films about Chicago gangsters, much worn by journalists in newspapers in the 1930s.

Today, the fedora hat is the style of the finest men. This style can often be worn in safari style with its brim down or the fedora crown with a brim turned down at the front and back. This shape received a huge boost with the Indiana Jones films, where the Indy hat was emblematic of the man. In our hat shops, our milliners offer hats to find your needs and hats for men but also for women.

The fedora hat is always present in our collections in summer and winter.
