This collection includes many choices from which you can select the right men's Bailey hat for you. The company offers many different styles of hats, including the cowboy hat, fedora, newsboy cap, and the felt hat. Here is a quick guide to help you figure out which one is the right fit for you:
- Color: There are many different colors that are available, from lime green to violet to beige. There are also options available in neutral colors like black, white, dark blue, and gray. Striped patterns, checkers, and plaid patterns can add another layer of style and contrast if you're looking for something that stands out a little more.
- Outfit: If you're planning to purchase a hat that you're going to be wearing regularly, choose a hat that will work with your regular attire.
- Fabric: A big part of style come from the fabric of the hat. Hats from Bailey offer over 30 different types of fabrics, so be sure to match the fabrics with the right Bailey hat styling for your needs. For example, wool is frequently chosen for newsboy hats while and felt is chosen for cowboy hats. Look at what fabrics go well with a specific type of hat, and compare different combinations before you make a final decision.
- Style: Because there are so many types of hats available, you should categorize hats as casual, formal, glamor, or vintage. For example, a black Fedora or a gray wool newsboy hat can be worn with a casual outfit. A top hat can work in both a formal and evening outfit.
To find the right fit, simply use a measuring tape to measure the circumference of your head just above the eyebrows. As guidance, the tape should be measured around 1/8-inch above the ear. The measuring tape should be held firm and should not be pulled too tight.
The other part of choosing the right fit is getting a hat that matches the shape of your face. A person with a long face might want to choose hats with low crowns. A person with a heart-shaped face may opt for a hat with a medium brim as it balances out the width of the forehead. A person with a round face may go for a hat with a tall crown to add height to the face.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Bailey.
