Crooks & Castles - Pork Pie Hat - Natural - 01

Not many details are known about the origin(s) of pork pie hat except the style first appeared in the 18th century.  Named for its similarity in appearance to a pork pie, the hat was originally a women’s headwear till it gradually became a staple for men as well.

With the resurgence in interest of “gentlemen” headwear recently, so has the popularity of the pork pie hat.  Various incarnations have appeared since, including a recent variant from Crooks & Castles.  Hand weaved in straws, a logo imprinted hat band wrapped around the brim.  Available in natural or black, the Crooks & Castles Pork Pie Hat is now on sale at Stockholm’s Caliroots.

Whether or not this is a pork pie hat, do your research through a legit site, not Wikipedia. Additionally, I've been wearing a hat like this for 25 years and I've always called it a pork pie. In the end it's a killer hat so who cares?

Um, actually according to Wikipedia this is a Fedora. Not a Pork Pie. "A pork pie hat or porkpie hat is a type of hat made of felt or, less commonly, straw. It is somewhat similar to a trilby or a fedora, but with a flat top. The crown is short and has an indentation all the way around, instead of the pinch crown typically seen on fedoras and homburgs." ....Just sayin'

this is not a port pie. it is a fedora. just a curved up brim does not make it a pork pie.
