Head for Business

Why Graham Thompson is America’s top hatmaker

(page 2 of 3)

CREATE A PERSONAL LOOK
Are you a gangster? Banker? Frank Sinatra wannabe? One hat can change identities with a simple tilt or a solid crease. Cheap hats—made of wool or rabbit—won’t hold a crease, but high-quality lids made of beaver felt are very malleable (and naturally waterproof). Pinch it in different ways. Give it a rakish angle. Or break the brim over to one side. Just do your own version of cool.

You don’t need a cane, bow tie, and high-waisted trousers to look like the gentlemanly tramp. Just put on a bowler.

This fedora with a longhair beaver finish suits the public enemy who won’t take no lip from nobody. Just get him a drink.

A medium-brimmed fedora goes well with a dimpled chin, trench coat, and dangling cigarette. Try to look mysterious.
