Men's or women's drop hats are essential accessories for men's or women's wardrobes of any age. With the function of covering from the sun's rays in summer and sheltering from frost and bad weather, the hat has taken on a very important role in men's outfits.
Thanks to its use in various TV series or films, the drop hat has started to be used again even by young people because of the ease with which it ties in well with their outfit, making it more stylish and elegant.
The difference between summer and winter drop hats is the material they are made of: more or less lightweight fabrics, others water-resistant or completely waterproof, and finally the most sought-after, which are straw hats.
The Drop or drop-head hat is a headgear with an informal style. The particularity of this shape is that once worn, it is very sporty but elegant at the same time.
Typically American, born in the first two decades of the 1900s, it is an elaboration of the most classic forms and is the shape of the hat worn by Indiana Jones, then elaborated in the 1960s by shortening the wing it became a must for the sporty man.
Today, it is a much sought-after accessory in the fashion world to the extent that it also appears in major international fashion houses.
Choosing the right drop hat for your needs is a very important step and should be approached with great care: for a ceremony, a party or an informal occasion, the hat must be perfectly matched and in tune with your outfit.
Certainly the season has a great influence on the choice of hat because depending on the period, summer or winter, we will have to opt for a hat that is more or less heavy and with different characteristics from each other.
The choice of a summer accessory involves lighter materials such as straw hats, panama hats or linen hats; in the opposite case, or a more wintery choice, felt hats, lapin hats or hats made of water-resistant or waterproof fabric.
Choosing the right hat size is always a critical moment, also because every hat made by hand and then sold in hat shops has very different sizes compared to the classic ones that clothing shops have accustomed us to.
Hat sizes are calculated in centimetres and range from size 55 (the smallest) to 62 (the largest). There is a very simple and quick procedure to find out which size is right for you.
To calculate your correct hat size all you have to do is take a tape measure, measure the circumference of your head by holding the tape measure just one centimetre above your ears, which is the point where your hat will fit perfectly.
You can calculate the size using a string, a string or a shoelace using the same procedure as above. Mark with a pen the point where the parts of the lace meet and then measure the length with a ruler or traditional tape measure.
