Types of Brimmed Hats for Men & Women
Fedoras are classic hats originating in the U.S., characterized by mid-size brims. The style encompasses various brim shapes (curved and straight) and crown styles (usually pinched-front but can also be center-dent or cattleman) and tends to have a wide grosgrain hatband and a snap-brim, which means the front can be turned up or down. Women’s and men’s Fedora hats are made with straw, felt, or fur. Wide-brim Fedoras for fishing and outdoors can feature a mesh crown. If you want a short-brim hat, consider the Trilby, a Fedora variation.
Western hats have wide brims and encompass even more styles. Though the first Stetson hat (the first cowboy hat ever made) had a round crown and straight brim, today, a hat with a curved brim and a dented crown is considered iconic. Though an integral part of a western outfit, cowboy hats beautifully match casual shirts, jeans, and dresses.
Men’s Derby hats, also known as bowler hats, are the 19th-century classic characterized by a round crown, rounded front, and curled brim.
If you’re looking for an outdoor hat, consider a Boonie. Boonie / Bucket hats are made with cotton, canvas, or polyester and feature a soft brim. The hat can also be fitted with a chin strap.
