A famous American actor Buster Keaton loved this style very much and wore such hat almost in all the films he played. The first designs of the pork pie hats were handmade by converting other formal hats like fedora into such piece. This season this hat is on top. Perhaps, it’s in part due to the popularity of formal wear, in part – to the well-known film Breaking Bad, where the lead character wore the pork pie.
How to wear it? The silhouette of such hat looks perfect with tailored and smart pieces. You can pair it with a well-cut suit in bottle green, bright socks and tan brogues.
