On the first of January, I wrote about my new year's resolutions and one of them being "investing in three more hats". Well, I was browsing through Tom Smarte hats, which offered styles like Fedoras, Trilby's Homburgs, Porkpies, Baker boy caps and much more.
When I met with Allon Zloof, the Creative Director of Tom Smarte, I was immediately drawn to his attention for detail and sensitivity to the materials.
What does one do when he finally sees a burgundy hat and shy away from it? (Pointing at myself right now!). I ended up choosing a beautiful melange grey mixed fur Fedora.
Normally, before I select anything, I think about what I already have in my wardrobe and ask myself the question, "Does this fit in"? However I broke my own Sartorial rule (oops) and went with what felt right in the spur of the moment!
As soon as I got home, I felt compelled to see how I would wear the hat in conjunction with my current wardrobe. Here are some ideas of what I came up with:
Feel free to comment/questions and share your ideas below.
Until next time, have a good day!
Special Thanks to Allon Zloof, Creative at Tom Smarte for kindly allowing me to write about my excitement for getting closer to my New Year's Resolution goals.
