Find the appropriate hat
The best hat for every season.
Small guide to hats and how to choose the right one.
Which hat is best for me?
The right hat can help you add personality and style to your outfit. But before you buy one, it’s important to consider which type of hat will best suit your face shape and the occasion.
Below are some general tips for certain face shapes to help you make your decision.
ight, a wide-brimmed hat can help make your face less round.
Square or rectangular face
If you have a square or rectangular face, a fedora will help soften the corners of your features.
If you have an oval face, most hats will suit your features well. (Lucky boy)
The right hat for every season:
Hats are worn on different occasions, but mainly the season determines what kind of hat is worn. A winter hat in the summer would be dispensable!
Autumn and winter
In the fall or winter you have several choices to keep you warm. If you choose a hat, it is best to go for one that is made of felt.
Felt hats are a great option for anyone looking to keep themselves warm this winter.
What is felt?
Felt means if the hat is made of fur, nine out of ten is rabbit. These are the best priced of all felt hats. Another kind of felt can be Beever’s, which are remarkably finer and softer and are only used in the best hats.
Thanks to their insulating properties, hats in felt are best for the winter, because they keep the heat released by the head well inside the hat.
Another option is hats made in wool, also sometimes called wool felt. These are the cheapest option and that’s fine in itself, but there are important factors why I prefer a real felt hat.
1) Wool hats, like our clothes, can woolen (slightly fluff) over time.
2) sensitive to shrinkage, it has already happened that they can become smaller (not much but sometimes difficult)
3) Felt hats are easier to get back into shape by a hat maker (or maker).
Spring and Summer:
For spring or summer, the best option is to go for a hat made with natural straw.
Hats made from natural straw provide adequate coverage and protection from the sun. The material is light and breathable and keeps its shape well. The hat is a stylish accessory for your summer outfit and offers protection against UV rays while you are out in the sun.
Models of hats:
At Harbor of Men, as you could tell we are mainly focused on hats for men. Don’t worry ladies, these models also look good on you, it is only likely that you will have to take a smaller size.
We’ll use a few common names for the hats to keep it simple, because everyone calls certain hats differently.
