Hat love is true love, hat love is for ever

Hats of all kinds were all over the runways at fashion week.  Menswear pin-striped suit and fedora, caftans and fedoras, …. It seems to be the It piece of  the coming fall/winter season.

Fall must-have: A fedora. #trends Click To Tweet

Ever since I was a little kid, I have loved any type of head gear. I couldn’t imagine my closet without them. I even got married in a red skirt suit with a wide brim black hat. The first hat, I remember owning, was a red fedora with a green silk cord with two tassels around the crown. In the knot of the  cord was a white feather. This type of hat was called “Tirolerhut” back then in Germany. I remember I loved my “Tirolerhut”. Of course, it was a Sunday’s Best sort of accessory.

My mom used to pair it always with my red skirt suit when we would go somewhere special on the weekend. I remember wearing that outfit when we visited the zoo in Duisburg. Pretty dressed up for a toddler. When we visited my grandparents, she paired the head topper with my favorite lederhosen.

What I picked

When I browsed Tenth Street Hat’s online store to pick a sample for review, this burgundy Vienna Scala fedora caught my eyes. The weird thing  was that it looked so familiar. Almost like the grown-up version of my beloved childhood head gear. Like old friends who hadn’t seen each other for decades, but nevertheless recognized each other immediately. I thought that’s exactly what I was looking for all these years.

When I opened the package, I was really excited about the nice felt, the whimsical silver colored thin chain around the  crown and the deep burgundy color. I said to my husband “Finally, I  have the fedora I always wanted!”

It has a grosgrain band and metal overlay. The size is one fits all. No hassle with figuring out the size, it is designed to fit most thanks to its inner drawstring sweatband. You can choose between blue, burgundy and  back. The brim is 3 ½” (8.89 cm), i.e. it’s on the wide side. And so me.

Even when you only buy it as a trendy wardrobe addition for this fall/winter season, because you are not a “hat-person”, you will easily get the cost-per-wear below a dollar.
