Brown Felt Trilby Hat

Top Grade Pure Wool Felt

Satin Lined

Cotton Internal Headband

Of all the classic types of men’s headwear, nothing catches the imagination like the Trilby Hat. Although the hat's name derives from the stage adaptation of George du Maurier's 1894 novel Trilby, when a hat of this style was worn in the first London production of the play, it’s probably in the middle of the 20th Century when it became a staple part of a gentleman’s wardrobe.

It’s hard to know who to leave out of a list of classic Trilby wearers, amongst those aficionados that immediately spring to mind are such diverse characters as Frank Sinatra, Vincent O-Brien, Peter O’Toole, Harrison Ford, Dick Tracy, Pete Docherty, Edward VIII, Tamara Lempicka, George Raft, Humphrey Bogart, Arthur Daley, Marlene Dietrich…..please stop me before I go too far!

Aero have finally found a Trilby that we are happy to include in our range of classic clothing.

When receiving a new Felt Hat it is advisable to shape the brim to one’s personal taste by steaming the hat in the jet of steam from a boiling kettle, generally speaking on this occasion it IS best to try this at home as most local cafés take umbrage to it being done on their premises.

Available in three colours in all size
