The unique houndstooth hat with raw edge is just a fun and quirky accessory. It is the sibling of our black Akuma hat. This hat is also our perspective on the Fedora. In contrast with the Fedora hat and most hats, which are made of felt, we made it of a classical houndstooth fabric. The wide brim is machine stitched several times to create some firmness. Also the brim has multiple dart seams. In first place these give a quirky accent to the brim but also have a function. Because of these darts the brim gets some flexibility to tip down or up. It changes the style of this unique hat. The hat has a flexible feel. It’s not a stiff and fixed item. This also gives some quirkiness to the look and feel of this unique houndstooth hat.
Where the Fedora crown is typically creased lengthwise down the crown and pinched near the front on both sides, the Akuma hat had a flat crown.
How to style this unique houndstooth hat
For all hat lovers we have a unique and fun version of the Fedora. You can wear this hat in multiple styles in contrast to the classical Fedora. This is possible because of the darts on the brim of the hat. These give a quirky look to the slightly messy hat but have as function to tip the brim up for a tight brim or slightly tip down for a looser and slightly wavy brim.
Wear it with the brim slightly tipped up to approach the more classic look of the Fedora. Wear it tipped slightly to the right front to get a more mysterious look. Or choose to wear it more on the back of your head to create the bohemian look.
Tip the brim down for a more relaxed fun look that, depending on your outfit, can enhance the quirkiness or the relaxed feeling of your look. Our black cotton jumpsuit is a fun item to wear this hat with.
