The trilby hat is an essential accessory for men's and women's wardrobes of all ages. With the function of covering from the sun in summer and sheltering from frost and weather, the hat has taken on a very important role in the male outfit.
Much sought after by all fashion enthusiasts and fashion bloggers, the trilby has gained space and consideration and is now also used by young people for its ease of making a very simple outfit into something more stylish and elegant by adding a single accessory.
The difference between men's summer and winter trilby hats is the material they are made of: fabrics that are more or less light, others that are water-resistant or completely waterproof and finally the most sought-after, which are straw hats.
The Trilby is a variant of the Fedora with a distinctly English taste. It was named Trilby in honour of du Maurier's novel 'Trilby', as one was worn in its first performance at the theatre.
This is a Fedora-shaped hat with a truncated cone-shaped cap and a very narrow wing that is lowered at the front and raised at the back. It can be made of various materials.
The 80s and 90s of the 20th century saw its strong comeback and today the production of trilby hats Made in Italy is in great demand worldwide.
Choosing the most suitable trilby hat for your needs is a critical step and it is important to understand the use you intend to put it to: in the case of a ceremony, a party or an informal occasion, the trilby needs to be perfectly matched and in tune with your outfit, perhaps playing with some Prince of Wales or Pied-de-Poule patterns.
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.
It is possible to calculate the size with a piece of string, a string or a shoelace following the above procedure. Calculate the circumference, mark with a pen the point where the laces meet and finally measure the length with a ruler or a traditional tape measure.
