Stetson Straw Fedora Hats
Posted on April 14, 2017
The hat is one of the most popular clothing accessories nowadays, but sometimes choosing the most suitable headwear such as the Stetson line of hats could be a difficult step. Some people do not consider wearing of hats in their daily style and wear them only on special occasions such as parties. You can also find hats that very adaptable you can wear them for both situations special occasions and in the daily life. The key for choosing the most suitable is the balance. Other things to consider are your wardrobe, body, and face shape.
If you've recently peeked into a fashion and/or pop culture magazine lately, you've probably noticed that the Stetson Hats have made a major trendy comeback. Once a look associated with old Hollywood style and glamor, these fashionable hats had all but faded into the background of our style consciousness.
However, some current tenor inclinations have shown a definitive shift in our attitudes towards this sharp lid look.
The current popularity of fedoras can be traced to the first Indiana Jones movie when Indy, played by Harrison Ford, wears a safari style fedora, where the medium-to-large brim is turned down in the front and the back. The hat has become emblematic of the man. After that, all fedora styles took off. Today's fashionistas like their fedoras with stingy (short) brims - very much on the other side of the fedora brim length continuum from Indy.
Whether they know it or not, these young hipsters are the direct fashion descendants from Indiana Jones' Hat. Recent trends have proven that fedora hats have firmly planted themselves as a front-running style accessory.
What are the Best Stetson Hats This Year
The Fedora is most commonly known as a gangster hat, a hat which saw such widespread use and particular popularity amongst infamous prohibition-era gangsters such as Al Capone and Bugsy Siegal that it will be forever more associated with them.
With the distinctive front pinch and wide, floppy and pliable rim the fedora is a distinctive hat indeed. The actual name 'Fedora' came about due to a stage play which was running in 1882. The main character, Princess Fedora Romazova, wore a hat just like it, thus it became known as a Fedora.
Another variation of the fedora is the trilby, a hat very similar although it has a less ostentatious and less menacing look about it due to the narrower rim. Such stars as Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears have worn a trilby before.
Although you are much less likely to see young high-profile gangsters wearing a fedora hat these days they still do hold much popularity among older people, but this isn't to say the fedora is a hat for the old. Many young stars still wear the fedora hat and trilby hat. Run DMC are one example of how fedora hats are still seen as 'urban cool', and they look anything but ridiculous. My guess is it is only a matter of time before we again see a huge resurgence in popularity for this hat, and the sight of younger generations walking down the street sporting a fedora as commonplace, yet the epitome of chic.
Is there any doubt as to the power of Jackson's music?
Certainly, there can be no mistaking the look of their most famous member. Trilby tipped forward, throwing the face into shadow, and held in place by a single white sequined glove - the King of Pop - that's what they call Michael Jackson. The singer's legacy from his debut with the Jackson Five to the smash hit albums Thriller, Bad and beyond, may be described as 'spectacular' and 'high octane'.
It's unbelieveable that Michael Jackson has actually passed the big '5-0' milestone - with a career which now spans four decades during which he has sold 750 million records worldwide. The Thriller album, of course, is still the world's best-selling recording of all time. Just ask the Guinness Book of Records.
Motown is still going strong, even today. Songs like the Jackson 5's '123 .. it's easy as ABC' play in the best clubs as a way of winding down the night. It's a reminder that, if Berry Gordy Jr had fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional boxer Motown might never have been born. But he also had another passion, for music. And instead of going into the ring, he set up a record company, which took its name from Motor Town, as his Detroit home was dubbed after becoming the hub of the American car industry.
It was a move which took not just his life, but those of millions of music fans around the world, on a completely different road.
Yesterday the now legendary label marked its 50th anniversary, and people across the globe celebrated what became not just a successful label but an entire musical genre. Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Martha Reeves And The Vandellas, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Jackson Five, The Four Tops and The Isley Brothers - the list of timeless Motown acts seems endless. It is hard to believe that it all began back in 1959 with an dollars-800 loan from relatives.
As a boy he had dropped out of school to pursue his ambition to go into boxing, later serving in the US Army during the Korean war. On his return home he made his first move into music, setting up a record store. But selling tunes was never going to be enough and he dabbled in songwriting, penning Reet Petite, among other hits, for the singer Jackie Wilson.
As well as 123, don't forget the Jackson 5's "I want you back" featured on the Jackson Five's Greatest Hits. You can't help but love the beat, the music, Michael Jackson's voice. The song would come on the radio in the car and people everywhere would bob up and down.
