The word fedora comes from the title of an 1882 play by Victorien Sardou, whose work popularized this style of hat when it was worn by the cross-dressing lead actress Sarah Bernhardt. The hat evolved from the very formal homburg style and became popular in the 1920’s. A fedora is characterized by having a wide brim, 5-6cm and a pinched crown. It is usually made from felt as a winter hat or from panama straw as a summer option.
