If you can find some hats made out of felt that have a long crease right across the crown and has sides and front that are pinched, then you sure have found some of the most fashionable men's fedora hats. Such fedora hats usually have hat bands to make them look more attractive and have brims that go around the entire circumference of the hats. The only difference between a fedora and a Trilby is that the trilby has a brim that is shorter and the rear side of the brim is upturned sharply.

Vintage Hats

Tips for Choosing A Stetson Panama Straw Safari Hat

Have you ever found a dusty, crumpled vintage hat that you just knew had potential? Now you can coax them into wearable shape. Here are some tips and tricks that I have used to take care of my own vintage hats. Try them out on your own vintage toppers to refresh and renew, but please use common sense and take care when working with any piece of vintage clothing.

Dusty hats often pop up as a treasured find at a flea market or sale. Clean them with a hair brush made for babies or an old shaving brush. The bristles are soft and there's less chance of damage to the hat. Brush in a circular motion, or if the hat has a nap (a fabric with nap is one that has a pile or rough surface) brush in the direction of the nap. You can also use sticky tape or a slightly damp towel to gently lift surface dust or lint. And don't forget, hat boxes were invented for a reason - packing your hats away in a box with tissue paper will help keep them in good shape to enjoy.

Do you know how to plump up wilted flowers or ribbons? A little steam will perk up sad fabric flowers or ribbons. Use long tongs to hold the hat in the steam from a tea kettle or a boiling pot of water on the stove. Be sure to keep your hands out of the steam as you carefully turn the hat so that the steam rises onto the flower and it will "unwilt" before your eyes. Keep the hat in the steam long enough to do the job but not so that it gets wet.

Once in awhile a vintage hat loses its shape. If it's a fabric hat you can try steaming it briefly over a pot of boiling water to make it pliable. You can also put the hat on an ironing board and use a steam iron. Don't iron the hat; just hold the steam iron above the hat so the steam goes on the fabric. Then stuff the hat full of white tissue paper to the shape you want and let it dry or cool down. You can also shape it over an inverted plastic container if you find one that is the right size. A large dinner plate can help to shape a felt tam or beret.

Are you feeling mysterious enough to wear a veiled hat but your veil is not cooperating? Here's an old trick that my mother taught me that helps to shape or straighten a wrinkled veil. First take a white paper towel and put it on an ironing board. Then place a piece of wax paper over the paper towel. Next, place the veil carefully smoothed out to the desired shape. The last layer is a white cotton towel. Set your iron on a low setting and iron the layers for a few seconds. Work slowly in small sections at a time, moving the veil to a new spot as you finish each section. This helps to smooth out and stiffen the veil. You'll have to experiment to find the best heat setting and the length of time to safely iron the layers. Err on the side of caution and use very low heat at first.

From simple berets to flowered finery, take care of your vintage hats and you'll enjoy them for many years to come. Remember, a good hat tops a great outfit.

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.
