Originally introduced in an 1882 play by dramatist Victorien Sardou, in which Princess Fédora, played by cross-dresser Sarah Bernhardt, wore a center-creased, soft brimmed hat that was primarily fashionable, the fedora hat later became the symbol of the women’s rights movement. After Prince Edward of Britain started wearing fedoras in 1924, they became popular among men. In popular culture the fedora hat has become widely associated with gangsters and was broadcasted by prominent figures such as Indiana Jones, Michael Jackson and the 9th president of turkey, Süleyman Demirel. BBP takes the classic felt hat to the next level with a pinoreering design that adorns the fancied wide brim and indented crown with a black wounded cotton cord that is jointed in the back into a braided array and leads downward on the chapeau’s backside.
