the “Burgunder”

While perhaps not the hat for everyone, the Burgunder fills a certain niche: a functional yet dapper country hat. The wide brim provides excellent protection from sun or drizzle. At the same time, its tart-pan curl and invisibly stitched, hand-tacked binding on the brim provide a certain ritziness, particularly with the eye-catching limestone felt shown here (see also the Budapester). Of course, the impact can easily be taken down a notch with mid-tone colours and slightly reduced proportions as shown in the customer photo below. And if you choose to wear it while harvesting your pinot noir on the cool days of autumn, it will soon feel more like an effective and durable working companion, not just a style statement. The Burgunder is offered in variable proportions—the crown ranging from 33/4 to 4 inches high and the brim from 25/8 to 3 inches wide—the key being to maintain a proportionally balanced look that best suits the client. As for ribbon, the binding on the brim should match either the felt or the crown ribbon or both, ensuring the hat be either monotone or two-tone, but preferably not three-tone.
