Once the hat of favour for the gentry, the Trilby is aesthetically similar to the Fedora, differing with a shorter brim that is angled down at the front and is turned up at the back. Also featuring a shorter crown, this season's collection of mens Trilby Hats at Stuarts London comes courtesy of world renowned hat maker Stetson.
Getting its name to George du Naurier’s stage adaptation of the novel Trilby, the Trilby Hat reached its high of popularity in the 60’s due to its lower crown making it more practical than other types of hat for driving. Famed for its short brim silhouette that points down at the front and up at the back it is traditionally made from animal felts, although it also became popular in other materials such as Tweed, Straw and Wool.
After going out of fashion due to the 70’s trend of maintaining hairstyles the Trilby has never been far from the centre of fashion in the decades that have followed. Regularly seen on race tracks all over the country this season's collection of Trilby Hats comes courtesy of world renowned hat maker Stetson in a variety of materials and colours. For the best look this season simply style a trilby with a pair of sunglasses and one of the latest short sleeve shirts to arrive online at Stuarts London this season.
