Pork Pie Hats: There’s no better place to look for the origin of pork pie hats for men than in an iconic British dish: the pork pie. A pork pie hat, as its name suggests, is a flat-topped hat with a curved brim, giving it the appearance of a hot, savory pie fresh from the oven. Hats of this style have been made from many different materials, from felt to cotton to canvas. Pork pie straw hats have also become popular.
Best Pork Pie Hats for Autumn/Fall
The pork pie hat is one of the best-styled and most elegant men’s hat styles. Its versatility allows you to style it with a variety of outfits that can make you look great at a special event and enhance your style all at once. Now, let’s take a look at the best pork pie hats for men this fall.
With a classic two-inch telescope brim, Bruno Capelo’s wool pork pie features Australian wool felt construction that imparts a nice smooth feel to a hat that is already of great value. It includes a satin lining that completely covers the inside of the hat and a cloth sweatband to help wick away moisture. In addition to the self-matching grosgrain ribbon, this hat is accented with decorative feathers.
The traditional straw pie is made from thick, finely braided poly braid straw that’s lightweight and cool-to-the-touch. An accent stitch in contrasting colors is woven into the lower portion of the telescope crown, continuing onto the brim. There is a 1.5″ grosgrain ribbon band encircling the crown featuring a two-tone double bow and crosspiece. The unlined interior makes the cap lightweight and the cotton sweatband helps to wick away moisture!
