Trilby hat, a timeless one!

Let us just begin by heating ourselves up: we must pronounce rightly triLBy [trilbi] and not "tribly" or "triby". Inescapable, it is one of the most fashionable hats of these last years. In a period when many are those who dare not adding a hat to their daily outfit, the trilby is still riding high!

"an excellent choice for those who are not used to wearing a hat'

Its rounded lines, its small size and its modern shape make of it a discreet and elegant hat at the same time. In the first buying intention, the trilby is then an excellent choice for all those who are not used to wearing a hat.

Discover here the history and characteristics of this timeless headdress.

The trilby: a simple, elegant and modern shape!

Forme du chapeau trilby

The trilby hat shape is very close to the one of its cousin, the Fedora. It is characterized by a short brim of 5 cm or less (against more than 6 cm for the Fedora). A pinched and lowered brim on the front which goes upwards towards the back. Lastly, its crown is slightly hollowed, creating the form of a teardrop.

"Its lowered visor structures the look"

Why would you choose the trilby hat? Thanks to its small volume, the trilby covers but dresses you in a blink of an eye! Its lowered visor structures your look and brings to the silhouette a subtle note of boldness and modernity.

The elegance and sobriety of the trilby give you the confidence of best the days!

The trilby: how to wear it?

Many answers can be proposed here! First of all, the trilby is appropriate for men and women, and even for children. Moreover, it can be combined with a business attire -- for example with a black suit, just like a gangster. On the contrary, it will also match with a casual dress, or even very relax...balancing the look.

"with a black suit, just like a gangster"

Wearing a hat is not necessarily a matter of routine and it can be added to that the fear of worrying too much! But the short brims of the trilby and its more discreet shape make it a small-dimensioned and less showy model.

"slightly leaning on the back of the head or on a side, for a more relax style"

In its style, the trilby is a rock, sober and elegant hat, at the same time. It enhances the silhouette and be worn 
slightly leaning on the back of the head or on a side, for a more relax style.

We do believe the trilby is the perfect compromise between relax style of a cap and the elegance on a long-brimmed fedora hat. Therefore, it perfectly fits a casual look (jeans, shirt, t-shirt) or a more formal outfit (suit or cardigan).

The Trilby: when to wear it?

On a walk or during a picnic, at work or at a party, you can opt for the timeless elegant trilby. For an arty or rather dandy style: we recommend you wear it straight or pinched.

Be confident and adapt it according to your rebellious or classic personality!

The trilby: an all-season hat!

As said above, the trilby model is a hat of all times and of all trends. Adaptable, elegant and discrete, it's a very useful choice to combine with all outfits. And whatever the temperature! Thanks to its different materials (linen, straw, felt) and its multiple designs, it follows your mood according to the season. In summer, under the sun and with a UV protection. And in winter, under the cold and the rain with waterproof models.

The trilby: our morpho tips

We advise you to harmonize the length of the hat brim with the shape of your face (find all of our morpho tips here). For example, we recommend the trilby for those who have a thin, heart-shaped, oval, square, round...face. For larger faces, it's ideal if you choose a trilby with rather long brim or turn yourself, for example, towards the more classic fedora.

Bear in mind that the trilby will  soften your traits, disrupt the round shape of your face, or refine your charm.

Plus, it is a hat which will always bring its stylish and authentic touch to your dress, and under any climate.
