“Chacun à son goût”

Four different customers…

One wants a dark blue fedora of substantial proportions. That means a full crown, a serious brim, and a wide blue ribbon. Not a problem: he gets a majestic blue hat. Striking.

Another wants a classy but hip looking city hat. We go with cocoa brown, a more tapered, shallower crown, a very narrow brim, and an overtly contrasting grey-green ribbon with a nifty little two-tone detail in the knot. Cool.

Yet another likes the hand-bashed look of the Scribbler, but wants the informal feel of a brim that angles downward all around the hat. In charcoal grey with a narrow white-gold ribbon, the look is rich and rugged. Handsome.

A fourth customer’s request is simple: a traditional black fedora of ample scale and balanced proportions. A very fine grosgrain ribbon of pure silk adds some spit and polish. Classic.

You see the point: “to each his own taste.”
