Ever since I was a little kid, I have loved any type of head gear. I couldn’t imagine my closet without them. My wedding dress actually was 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 ord 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. Hats are an ageles style trend.
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!”
