Widford Fedora by Christys' of London - CWF100235
The Widford is the fedora sibling of the Winchester. Subtle and stylish it is completed with feather, ribbon, flat tab & Christys’ 1773 pin - a great felt hat for everyday wear.
In North America the Fedora has become a generic term for the fuller brimmed felt hat with dented crown.
The look became popular following the staging of the French play ‘Fedora’ written in 1882 for the well-known actress Sarah Bernhardt who wore this new hat style. In the early 20th Century hat took on a more masculine form, crossed the gender divide and earned a reputation as a prohibition Gangster or G-Man’s hat – a suave look with a hint of danger that helped to secure its popularity.
This is the look of the Christys’ Classic from their Oxfordshire factory.
