Black Fedora Hats
Fedora hats were born in the late 1800's, as a fashion accessory to depict the upper-class. Early in the 20th century, the fedora hat really grew in popularity; eventually surpassing the then admired Homburg Hat as the signature men's hat of the times. The fedoras popularity soared as it was prominently featured throughout 1940's cinema. Stylish fedora hats adorned the heads of movie's most famous detectives and gangsters, including classic characters like Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, the Blues Brothers, and Indiana Jones.
The fedora's popularity continued to grow through during the 1930's and 40's and made the leap onto the silver screen when Gene Kelly wore one in his memorable movie "Singin' in the Rain."
The hat is a true classic, and continues to make appearances on the heads of actors, celebrities and anyone who wants to add a little bit of old fashioned flare to their wardrobe.
