Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Statesman Hats

Movies and entertainment have always been a great testing ground for fashion, and we see numerous new looks that emulating the style that we see after various big and small screen debuts. 2017’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a sequel to the surprise 2014 hit Kingsman: The Secret Service . In this installment, we see the titular Kingsman travel to the United States to team up with their American counterparts the Statesman as the Statesman seem to be fond of the Cowboy and Western look.

Despite a great deal of focus on fashion and style in the original, with a Kingsman hideout beneath the Kingsman tailor shop on Savile Row, we didn’t see many hats in the original movie outside of a few ballcaps and flat caps. In the sequel, we see English director Matthew Vaughn dial up the Americana of the Statesman to 11 with a number of stylish cowboy and western hats sported by Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal and even Englishman Colin Firth.

Above we see Channing Tatum sporting a Buffalo Fur Felt Cowboy Hat. We offer the same look in our Bailey Western Lighting 4X Cowboy Hat

Jurassic Park Hats

With Jurassic World roaring out to a record box-office weekend, we thought we’d take a look back at some great Jurassic Park hats that have popped up over the years.

1. Dr. Alan Grant (played by Sam Neill).  Dr. Grant is a paleontologist who enjoys hunting for dinosaur bones before being hunted himself.  He sports a variety of hats throughout the series, mostly wider-brimmed fedoras.  Starting off in Jurassic Park, Dr. Grant is shown wearing a custom-made straw fedora, or panama fedora, with most likely a horsehair hat band with tassles.

While we cannot find an exact copy, we do have two hats that are similar, the Stetson Retro Panama Straw Fedora and the Scala Grade 3 Panama C-Crown Hat.

In Jurassic Park III, Dr. Grant opts for an olive green fur felt fedora with a black ribbon hat band.

The hat is custom-made and looks to be crushable for travel, but we do have a few similar hats, the Christys’ of London Fur Felt Foldaway Fedora in Burma Green and the Stetson Runabout Travel Fur Felt Fedora in Sage Green.

2. John Hammond (played by Richard Attenborough).  Attenborough can be seen in many hats throughout his storied acting career, but as John Hammond he first appears in a stylish wide-straw hat with a wide white hat band and a telescope crown (no pinches).

We were able to find one hat fairly close in style to this custom hat, the Dobbs Florentine Milan Braid Bishop Pork Pie.

3. Robert Muldoon (played by Bob Peck).  Muldoon is the park’s game warden in Jurassic Park, and seems to be one of the few employees who realizes the serious danger everyone in the park could be in at a moment’s notice.  Muldoon meets a memorable fate, but is normally seen wearing an outback hat throughout the movie with one side snapped up.

We have found an almost identical hat in our Henschel Cotton Twill Aussie.

4. Others.  There are quite a few other great hats in the movies throughout the years, especially in the original Jurassic Park:
