French blue stops me in my tracks every time. This deep blue color came together when I found this men's shirting fabric in light pink with little blue knots. The gold slide accent keeps it in place and the petersham trim pulls up all the colors. This rabbit fur felt is western weight making it stiffer than normal by HoM standards. I purposefully made the brim a little off kilter in it's tilt to add a rakish air. You can project more confidence in your hat if it is not perfectly flat (if that is your personality).
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. The headsize is 23 3/4" and can be adjusted before shipping.
