Trilby Hats

The name of this wonderful hat derives from the stage adaption of George du Mauriers 1894 novel, Trilby. The hat was widely worn throughout the production and soon became known as the Trilby Hat.

Generally the style of the trilby is a narrow brim with the front turned/snapped down and the back rolled upwards. Many people confuse the trilby and fedora styles, the difference between the two is the brim width, the fedora has a wider brim which is either flat or sloping downwards. The crown tends to be a little more shallow with the trilby, giving a the hat a smaller shape overall.

The trilby is certainly a fashionable item today, available in endless materials. Wool felt and fur felt are most widely available but with plenty of straw, cotton, linen & leather options being added to our stock throughout the year. Again the style is popular with all age groups, the slightly wider brims tend to be more favourable for the classic Sinatra look and the narrow rolled brims are highly sought after purely for fashion purposes. We hope you can find your perfect trilby in our collection, its only going to get bigger so be sure to keep checking back!
