Worn by everyone from jazz players to ska musicians to rudeboys to skinheads to Inspector Clouseau, here’s six modern takes on the classic trilby hat.
From left to right:
agnes b. Corduroy Cotton Django Hat (US$195)
Anthony Peto Straw Trilby (US$134)
Comme Des Garcons Wool Blend Trilby (US$134)
Uniqlo Straw Trilby (US$19.50)
Jaxon Hats Eight Ball Trilby (£16.95)
Paul Smith Linen Trilby (£90)
Outside Europe and Asia, agnès b. has been one of the more overlooked men’s labels, perhaps overshadowed by the rise to prominence of compatriates A.P.C.
However, with the latter’s prices creeping upwards and quality (arguably) diminishing, it’s a good time to re-evaluate this distinctive, made in France label.
