A Tribute to Timeless Fall Headwear Styles, Inspired by Iconic Hollywood Films
In tribute to time-honored fall style, we look back at a few of our favorite Hollywood icons who made headwear intrinsic to their look.
Western x Workwear
As Jett Rink in the 1956 film Giant, James Dean makes the scene with a classic western hat with a rolled brim, perched nonchanlantly on the back of his head. Bonus points for the styling with a well-worn workshirt and pinstripe vest. Nail the spirit of his look with our Bronco Western and Cass Jacket.
A Fresh Angle on the Fedora
The unforgettable Ingrid Bergman steals the show in Hitchcock’s 1946 spy film noir Notorious. Her charming co-star is Carry Grant, but the scene with the angled black fedora and camel suit is the truly stylish partnership that caught our eye. Try our Joanna Felt Hat for a love affair of your own.
Baggy Brood x Button-Down Shirt
In the 1973 classic, The Sting, Robert Redford works the ultimate con as the Depression-era grifter, John “Kelly” Hooker with a slouchy brood that perfectly suits his cool, poker-faced demeanor. We also like his crisp checks. For fall we’d suggest this great-looking Brood with our Bowery Flannel.
Fedora x Monochrome Cool
The OG of gender-bending style, the Berlin-born actress was masterful at making a sleek suit her own and a standout topper was a key element. While a white suit may not be your everyday go-to, we love the thought of taking monochrome casual. Rock the look with our Leigh Felt Fedora.
Field Proper x Serape (AKA: Big Scarf)
Shot in Spain in 1964, the spaghetti western, A Fistful of Dollars, was Clint Eastwood’s first starring role. If Men’s street style from Fall Fashion Week tells us anything it’s that Eastwood’s look is totally on-point. A sleek western hat with a strong center crease makes a memorable impression with a big, bold scarf.
Fedora x Checks
A true cultural icon who sets the bar for talent and style, when we think of Sinatra we think of great hats. While the blue-eyed crooner’s main go-to was a classic fedora with a wide band, we think he’d approve of the sharp updated style of our Gain Fedora with your favorite flannel or patterned top.
Fedora X A Classic Combo
When it comes to iconic dance scenes, the ‘Madison’ dance sequence in Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 film Band of Outsiders is a definitive moment in French New Wave cinema. The charm of the dance, and the catchy beat of the track, convey the duality of persona and style with the eye-catching cool of Anna Karina’s hat. It’s perfectly juxtaposed against her classic sweater and skirt. Make a scene of your own with our Messer Fedora.
Celebrating individuality and that pieces can be worn differently, the Bowery has become the flannel for all. For this season we gathered some of our friends, family and community to showcase how they wear their favorite flannel.
