Fedora Today

It’s yet another case of everything old being new again. The NY Times calls it “The Hat That Ate New York” and, over the past six years, the fedora hat of bygone days is once again a cool and chic accessory.

Apparently, those classic films of the 1930s/ 1940s really caught on and men and women alike want to recapture that suave, dressed to the nines appearance…if only in a casual way.

Ranging in price from $6. in Chinatown (imported from parts unknown in China) to about $50./ $60. in the city’s more stylish shops (imported from parts unknown in China) the fedora is a hot item.

And to think, by the late 1960s, the only person left wearing a fedora was Walter Winchell.
