The Ford is our middle of the road, straight brim fedora. Not too wide, not too tall...this is a hat that feels like it goes on any occasion. The brim is around 2" wide, flat, and is easy to wear in and out of a car or restaurant. I never hesitate when putting this shape on and the rabbit fur velour felt makes it plush to the touch and very comfortable. The headsize is 23.5" and can be adjusted before shipping.
This version is blocked in a pecan rabbit fur velour felt with a slightly lifted brim. There is a tonal petersham ribbon trim with a paisley denim tie and matte silver scarf slide. The most unique part of this hat though is the bark cloth band. Bark cloth is a fabric sourced from tree farms in Uganda and is a renewable and extremely environmentally responsible material. I have had a lot of fun playing with my piece and on this hat it is wet and rolled into the cigarette band around the hat. It will make a great conversation piece at parties!
