There’s a hat for every season, as you’ve no doubt seen on our Spring 2013 and 2014 posts, and our fall looks post last month. While spring and summer are all about light linens, Panama hats, and the like, fall and winter are dominated by thick fabrics, layering that allows for playful textures. Take a look at these looks that we’ve compiled and our takes on a few hats from us that will help you nail the perfect fall look.
Starting things off light, this early-fall look couples a wool sweater with a white linen over shirt that helps pull things together in a refined, comfortable look for looking at the leaves turn. For a comparable hat, try our Dobbs Woodmere Wool Felt Fedora
Always classic, the Indiana Jones Last Crusader Fedora takes on a look more attuned with French and Italian fashion than it’s name lends it to too. Rest assured, this hat can be dressed down OR up, as evidenced by this picture.
Straight from the Don Draper style book, this 60’s-era look comes from a time when a man’s 3-piece suit may as well have been considered a 4-piece, as it was simply incomplete without the proper hat. The overcoat on top of the blazer is perfect for keeping your warm on your morning commute to the office, and our Stetson Eagle Fur Felt Fedora will keep you warm up top.
While the fall and early winter certainly give you some leeway on the types of jackets you will put on, when it just gets too cold for denim, a thick, warm jacket of wool and leather will keep the chill off. Seen here worn over a thick sweater, the look is perfect for layering when you arrive at your destination. Coupled with a warm, wide brimmed wool hat, such as our Stetson Raven Fur Felt Fedora.
Sometimes you only need to keep your most cold-sensitive areas warm to stay comfortable on a brisk, but not frigid day. This double breasted suit is set off by a loud, red scarf bundled tight to set this look one step ahead of all-business. Worn with a similarly styled wool Bailey of Hollywood Barr Lanolux.
Sometimes a winter jacket needs to keep you warm AND make a statement. This fur jacket coupled a take on a Stetson Runabout Travel Fur Felt Fedora is the perfect mix of styles.
