Tips for Choosing CARLOS by Carlos Santana Men's Cashmere Wool Pinch Front Hat

PROPER FIT IS ESSENTIAL FOR LOOKING COOL AND FEELING COMFORTABLE

Your hat should look and feel like it was made just for you. Comfort is key. It should be reasonably snug so that a light wind can't blow it off of your head, but it should not be so tight as to cause discomfort or distraction. Hats that are the right size and shape for your head lend class and charisma to everything you wear. A properly fitting hat doesn't obscure your vision or fall to the floor whenever you bend over. It doesn't engulf your head, and it doesn't fit so tightly that it pops off unexpectedly. Your hat should be proportionate to the size of your face and head. An improperly fitting hat can make you look undignified, frumpy or comical, even if the hat itself is a masterpiece. Luckily, it's easy to determine your size, so you can choose your next fedora or Panama hat with confidence.

HOW TO...

To find your hat size, you'll need a soft, flexible tape measure or a piece of string and a ruler. If you're using a tape measure, wrap it around the back of your head about one-eighth of an inch above the top of your ears. Allow the two ends to meet in the center of your forehead above your eyes. Don't pull the tape tightly; it should rest gently against your skin. Release the tape while keeping your finger on the point opposite from the free end to mark your head circumference measurement. Record the measurement, and round it to up the nearest eighth of an inch; match this number to the hat sizing guides below. If you're using a piece of string, simply wrap it around your head until it meets in the middle of your forehead, cut off the excess, and measure the remaining string with a ruler to get your head size. Always measure at least twice to be sure that you're getting the most accurate results possible.

MEASURING WOES: WHEN ONE SIZE DOESN'T FIT ALL

Several factors can throw you off course when you're trying to measure your head for a new hat, but you may not encounter them until you try on a few of your favorites. Standard measurements may vary among manufacturers. For example, a medium-sized trilby hat made by one company may be slightly larger or smaller than a similar hat offered by a different brand. Some materials tend to create a looser or tighter fit than others. It's important to remember that sizing charts are approximate.

TIPS FOR MAINTAINING PROPER SIZE AND FIT FOR THE LIFE OF YOUR HAT

Even the best hats aren't invincible. Frequent wear, storage habits and the natural elements can sometimes alter their size and shape. However, by following a few basic guidelines, you can prevent most of the damage and help your hat retain its perfect fit.

Guys, Smarten Up For Summer Wear a Hat

Mod clothing is not defined by just a few specific clothes but these are some of the well known and iconic 1960s clothes that most Mods would have somewhere in their wardrobe.

Desert Boots

Desert Boots were worn casually by 1960s Mods as they went well with both jeans and also suits. They were usually a beige or light brown colour suede boot with two to three or sometimes four holes. The boot originated from the army desert boot but became fashionable in the fifties and early 60s with the Beatnik Culture. The Mods adopted the boots with branded versions being available from Clarks but other cheaper non branded versions could be found by the Mods who were prepared to look around. Clarks re-introduced the Desert Boot in their classic range just a few years ago.

Bowling Shoes

Mods started wearing bowling shoes even before the majority of bowling alleys had sprung up in England. They were usually made of coloured leather or sometimes suede. Bowling shoes were lightweight cool and comfortable for dancing in! The black and white colours were the most popular but they came in all colours including red white and blue. Shops in Carnaby street like Ben Sherman, Merc, and The Face all stock bowling shoes. They have been adopted by the first, second and now third generation of Mods.

Cycling Shirts

Mods started wearing cycling shirts back in the 1960s, and the shirts have long been associated with mod attire. The shirts were made of lightweight cotton, usually with stripes around a high zip up round collar. Cycling shirts would be brightly coloured and usually have either the sponsor or makers name emblazoned onto it; as football shirts do these days. As these shirts were made for cycling, they too were also obviously cool for dancing in. A cycling shirt, Harrington jacket and a pair of Levis would be a fairly classic look for a mod.

Boating Blazers

Boating Blazers are part of the Mod fashion. These smart jackets were made of cotton or sometimes silk or mohair! Boating blazers are a fitted look, with 3 buttons, small lapels and sometimes a ticket pocket sewn above the right hand pocket. Boating blazers were usually brightly coloured with vertical stripes. Jimmy the mod played by the actor Phil Daniels in the film Quadrophenia, which is about the life of a 1960s mod, is seen wearing a black and grey striped boating blazer in the film. They can be worn during the day or on a night out A very smart look for any self respecting mod who wants to stand out in the crowd.

Pork Pie n Trilby Hats

Pork pie n Trilby hats were worn by 1960s Mods on their Scooters before crash helmets became compulsory. These hats not only looked cool they kept your head warm too! Normally made from felt, they had a flat top, a short crown and an indentation all round. These hats were usually made in dark colours black, charcoal grey, or chocolate brown. The hats usually have a band of silky material in the same colour about an inch in diameter fitted around the width of the hat. Purdy, the black mod in the film Quadrophenia kept his supply of French blues (speed pills) under his hat. The use of speed and other Amphetamines were popular with Mods to help support their all night dancing and partying lifestyle.

Mod clothing is not as narrow as just a few specific items of vintage clothing but at the same time, these iconic clothes from the 1960s are easily identifiable with the mod scene and are still prevalent with the third generation of Mods. There are a lot of retro styles available today that have kept to the original look and style but also there is vintage clothing for those that want the original authenticity.
