Originally a woman’s hat, the Porkpie was popularised by movies, TV shows and jazz musicians like Lester Young. Named after the traditional meat pie which it resembles, a Porkpie hat can be created by skilfully reshaping a Fedora or Trilby. The Porkpie has a unique look, with its upturned brim and telescoped, flattened top.
Because it can be created and re-configured by its owner, the Porkpie style is often chosen by highly creative, iconoclastic personalities. If you like to challenge preconceived ideas, this is the hat for you!
