Truffaux Hatmakers

Ironside Fedora


Sometimes a dark hat is just perfect. The Ironside combines the lightweight coolness of Panama straw, with the satisfaction of a steel grey hat. With the brim down it feels like inner-city Melbourne in the 1940s. With the brim snapped up, it is a rockin' festival hat for magical adventures. Snapping the brim down all round is glamorous runway.

This is my favourite dark hat. In Melbourne, it makes perfect sense.

I've had this hat since 2015

I purchased it while in Honolulu, and while it has lightened by the sun, it is my favorite hat. I get compliments every time I wear it. I want another!

Go dark for a lark!

I love my Ironside Fedora! The craftsmanship is so impressive and the color is gorgeous! Light, comfortable and very stylish. The dark color will help you stand out from all the light colored summer hats out there and the enamel hat pin is a classy accessory. Love it!

From Grey to Gray

I transitioned for this masculine and exquisite gray straw fedora for summer from a grey flat cap for winter. It distinguishes from the natural colored. Be prepared to wholeheartedly accept compliments with a single nod and a confident "Thank you."

Finally have a summer hat I love

Usually, I wear felt hats all year, which can get bloody hot in summer. You are lifesavers - thank you. Amazing hat.
