New Arrivals: Ferruccio Vecchi 2023!

It's always exciting for us here at Hats in the Belfry when the seasons start to change. While we love our wintery weighted felt friends, there's nothing quite like getting in our new straws to brighten and liven us up, making us look hopefully towards enjoying the blissful summer days on the near horizon at last.

One of the latest in our new arrivals is this year's selection of Ferruccio Vecchi, and we just had to share! So let's take a look at what you'll be able to find with us--you're sure to love them as much as we do!

Sagacious Selection of Straws

If you're only really used to wearing felts and knits to keep cozy, but really enjoy the look of your hat and want to keep it year-round, it can be a bit daunting to know where to start when considering the materials most suited for spring and summer weather. Straw of course seems like a no-brainer, but even then you find a whole array of materials referred to as "straw." Let's help make it easier for your to determine which straw best suits your needs with a quick breakdown of various types you'll find with us at Hats in the Belfry!

Style Guide: Caps & How to Wear Them

Why is Italy the Best Country for Hats?
 For centuries, Italian milliners (hat makers) have been crafting handmade men's and women's hats that are timelessly fashionable. From sleek fedoras to handmade panama straw hats, Italian milled headwear is a true art form.
Big Brim for the Big Race: Gorgeous Ladies’ Derby Hats

Before you arrive in Kentucky, make sure that your wardrobe is on point.

Trilby vs. Fedora: What's the Difference? How are They Similar?
Some may think that fedoras and trilbys are completely interchangeable, but hold on just a second there! While it's not uncommon to feel a bit of confusion as to what the finer differences between these two styles of hat may be given their obvious similarities, let's try to help clear it up a bit for you.
Keeping Cozy in Caps with Ear Flaps

Autumn leaves color the trees, and alongside them both our days and nights begin to hold the chilling bite of the winter months that approach. We gather our thicker coats, seek out scarves, and tuck gloves away into pockets and bags for the inevitability that they will be needed, because it's far better to be prepared than finding yourself without, right?

Then, of course, we seek out our coziest hat.

Let’s take a look at some of our caps with ear flaps to give you an idea of what your options could be this winter for any of your impending winter wonderland wanderings!

Hat Knowledge: Materials - Fall/Winter
As the seasons change, so do the materials hats are made of. This is what separates Spring/Summer from Fall/Winter hats. Sure, you can wear your summer straw in the winter, if you’d like. But, that’s like wearing sandals in the snow....
