Last week, we kicked off our exciting switch to Fedoras.com with a big hat giveaway. Since the announcement, fans have scoured the store for clues to our sitewide scavenger hunt and for good reason — a brand new Bailey of Hollywood hat was on the line!
Hats off to everyone who entered and shared our new name on Facebook and Twitter — we really appreciate the support! But the time has come to announce our grand prize winner. Congrats to our Bailey hat winner, Ivy Gabriella Chuisano, as well as to Jonathan Manning, who won a $50 Fedoras.com gift card.
Ladies and gents, he’s done it again. Justin Timberlake is back, and he’s putting pressure on guys everywhere to step up their style game — with a fedora.
In the lyric video for his latest single, JT makes the ladies weak in the knees — and the men jealous — in a laid-back, Panama-style fedora. For a modern take on this classic crooner style, Justin pairs his topper with a lightweight coat and classic aviators.
If you’re looking to capture Justin’s smooth signature style, we recommend a hat with a solid, neutral band. A band in a shade like black or brown will stand out and make a statement against a lighter straw hat, without attracting the wrong kind of attention.
You might have noticed that things look a bit different around here. No worries, you’re not seeing things! Since your last visit, The Fedora Store (formerly thefedorastore.com) has merged with Fedoras.com to make it easier to access both our retail store and our hat resources in one fell swoop.
Although we’ve made a small switch, we’re still the same trusted hat brand, with the same team and top-notch selection you expect. Only now, while you’re browsing for that one-of-a-kind fedora, you can also easily school yourself in hat creases, celebrity toppers, and gentlemanly fashion, too! So you see, we’re really not that different after all — we’ve just made ourselves even better.
And what better way to celebrate this occasion than with a contest and hat giveaway?

Based on the book by Paul Lieberman, Gangster Squad depicts the story of a team of LAPD officers as they try to take back their city from mob king, Mickey Cohen. With a star-studded cast that includes A-list actors like Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, and Ryan Gosling, Gangster Squad embodies the spirit, culture, and fashion of the 1940s.
After you see the film, one thing will be certain — you need the Gangster Squad style. The timeless suits, suspenders, and — of course — fedoras worn by Gosling, Penn, and the gang, make for a sophisticated look that’s considered impeccable, even by today’s standards.
To truly recreate the classic ’40s fashion in the 21st century, we consulted A Tip of the Hat‘s resident fedora experts. From mob bosses to undercover cops, they broke down the flick’s most dapper hats and … Read More »
It’s a representation of intelligence, high status, and wealth. It symbolizes that you mean business and know what you’re talking about. No, I don’t mean your Yale Law degree on the wall. I’m talking about a tailor-made suit. And even though business attire is changing, a tailor-made suit is still reputable for events like meetings with clients or out-of-office events like weddings.
1. Find a Tailor
This is the most important step in buying a tailor-made suit because quite literally, the tailor makes the suit. To find a skillful tailor, the best thing to do is ask around. Go to business colleagues, friends, or family members who you know have a tailored suit and ask them who makes their suits. Also, according to AskMen.com, most reputable tailors can be found in major department stores or … Read More »
