Tan Straw Fedora Hats

The fedora was worn mostly in the early part of the twentienth century within urban industrialized settings as a stylish way to protect from the wind and weather while being compact enough to deal with the newer technologies such as the automobile. It is often associated with Prohibition-era mafia and tops off most zoot suits.

Famous Fedora wearers:
  • James Bond actor Sean Connery
  • Michael Jackson
  • Run-DMC wore black fedoras
  • Indiana Jones with a safari style brim
  • Comic strip hero Dick Tracy wore a yellow one
  • Frank Sinatra of the Rat Pack
  • Carmen Sandiego
  • Humphrey Bogart's character in Casablanca
  • Clark Kent
