Is fedora hat in or out? Most of you might want to know and wondering? To me the answer is very simple, any fashion accessory that create style and fashion, will definitely be in.
Let me briefly share some historical background of fedora hat. A fedora is a soft felt hat that is creased lengthwise down the crown and pinched in the front on both sides. The term fedora was in use as early as 1891. Originally a women's fashion into the 20th century, the fedora came into use in about 1920, as a men's upper-class clothing accessory. Its popularity soared, and eventually it eclipsed the similar-looking Homburg by the 1930s. Fedoras can be found in nearly any color imaginable, but black, grey, tan, brown, and red are the most popular.
Although the fedora became popular 30 years after the cowboy era (1865-1890), the use of fedoras is common in most TV/movie westerns. The fedora is widely recognized with the characters of The Blues Brothers, Indiana Jones, and Freddy Krueger. The fedora is closely associated with film noir characters.
If you are still not convince, just look at the recent 2009 Spring/Summer collection put up by various fashion designers, you will have the answer.
