The Felt Fedora

Fedora.  Such a beautiful, mellifluous name for something that is hideous ninety- percent of the time.  What was once a symbol of refinement is now the accessory of choice for club-going, bulging-muscled meatheads and Don-Draper wannabes.  I chose to pay homage to one of my favorite fictional heroes, Indiana Jones, with this wide-brimmed felt fedora.  While my tastes are anything but simplistic or minimalist, when contemplating this type of hat, I recommend keeping it simple and clean.  Save the feathers, ribbon trimmings, and other embellishments for your other accessories.
