Also can be known as a trilby and worn by men and women. More commonly made of felt but almost equally now of parasisal or a fine straw.  Adorned with feathers and a leather hatband a Fedora is ideal to wear to the races in the winter or alternatively as a  sunshade in the summer. Brims can be small or large giving quite a different look.  I always think there is something quite mysterious about a Fedora, pulled down in the front and cocked to one side. Quite a fashion statement.
