Product Details
Eric Lynes, the man currently at the helm of this almost-century-old Canadian haberdashery, might be the world's foremost aficionado on gentlemen's hats. (Seriously, ask him anything.) So it's no surprise that when people go looking for an authentic old-school style, this is where they end up. This braided straw fedora is the kind of piece we'll be wearing all season long—and it can only be found here.
  • Straw.
  • Dry clean.

Madewell x Biltmore® Braided Fedora Hat

Madewell x Biltmore® Braided Fedora Hat is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, The Perfect Hat Although I desperately need sun coverage, I'm not traditionally a hat person. Partly this is because I'm afraid I look goofy in a hat, and partly it's because of my GIANT head. Someone mentioned that this hat runs a little large -- and thank goodness. I got the M/L and it's just the right size. The brim is stiff and wide enough to provide actual sun protection, the cord keeps you from losing it in the wind, and I don't even look goofy! I'll be wearing this all summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Love this hat - just a bit of movement at the brim but not a floppy hat by any means. Perfect hat for summer. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing is strange/Love it! Love love love this hat. Excellent quality. The only strange thing that I found the sizing to be off. The sm/m is what I ended up going with even though it felt slightly snug, because the M/L was HUGE. It's still really cute though, and a nice stiff brim if that's what you're looking for (not a floppy hat).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hat for style, not for sun. Great hat for fun and fashion. Not so much for keeping the sun off your face. I am normally a size medium BC I have really thick hair, so I went with the small/medium and it fits fine. I’m keeping it BC it is a fun hat, but if you’re looking for a hat to protect you from the sun, I’d purchase another one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful not effective Beautiful hat but doesn’t keep you protected from the sun, which is what I bought it for. The brim flips up as you walk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute hat but floppy - not sturdy. I really like the shape of this hat but l do think it's overpriced as it's too flimsy to be sun-protective. Wish it was sturdier. Also, because it's handmade, mine had a lot of frays (un-tucked straw ends) on the crown and brim. Might try ordering another to see if I get a better one, but still, it's just for looks as it's not sturdy enough to keep the sun off my face.
