Brimmed felt hats have exploded into the mainstream. It’s been a while actually. While menswear afficianados have studied all heritage brands associated with fine hat production, it only takes the nod of approval from one pop icon (Pharrell); and then a huge of-the-moment pop star (perhaps a One-Direction kid); and then it’s being donned by thousands of young urban dwellers.
The Ranger Hat by Camo is one of the more handsome offerings I’ve seen. It’s styling is something more chic and casual than the traditional and formal brims adorned by business-types. The Ranger felt hat is handmade entirely in Italy. Extra detail in the contrast leather band and buttons just above the brim.
