#WeLove Fedoras and #Fashionista s….#Style Profile

Here’s an interesting question we found perusing the net.  What we thought was a Fedora is actually a Trilby.  Well, guess what we have in stock? Grey, Dk Brown and Ivory Trilby’s at TryingTwenties.com.

Reader Question: Trilby vs. Fedora

By Truth in Fashion | Published: June 27, 2011

Dear Truth in Fashion,

I see hats called fedoras, and others called trilbies, but I really don’t see a difference, are they the same thing?

Dear Mindy,

They look a lot alike but actually have subtle differences. What we are seeing right now in fashion being called a fedora is most likely a trilby. A trilby hat has a thinner rim than a fedora. For some fun facts about the names of these hats, the trilby was named after a play based off of George du Maurier’s book, Trilby. In the play, one of the characters wore one of these hats. The fedora was also named after a play called Princess Fedora where the main character wore this style of hat.

Thanks Truth in Fashion!

Lesson Learned and I still get to be in Style!

LIVE Life…And get your terminology right.
