Men's dress hats and caps from Borsalino sizzle anyway, but none quite so much as The Virgilio Dorse. Buy it as an ivy cap or fur felt fedora, this baby's been 150 years in the making. Another magnificent dress hat from these master hatters is The Ultimo, a 100%
beaver fur felt fedora for men. It is in fact a copy of The Stingy Brim Ultimo, but with slightly larger brim - and everyone knows how important size is! In a completely different style, there's a sporty baseball cap from Borsalino worthy of serious consideration here. We're calling it The Genoa (pretty much because we can), and have the wool blend cap here for you in light grey (with a delightful tan plaid lining). You may have noticed a stingy brim fedora called The Diamond Crown. It's likely the lightweight "melange" fur felt with its soft, furry texture caught your eye, or maybe it's the attractive two tone or even its diamond crown. Anyway, good call. Nice hat.
Leather caps have long been a Borsalino specialty, and The Zorzi in rugged, distressed calfskin leather, is top of the line, as is The Franco, a soft-as-butter fashion ivy cap. You'll want to see The Giuseppe, too. It's an all-leather newsboy with snap front and snappier attitude. But the newsboys and ivys and baseball caps aren't limited to leather, naturally. The Umbria Borsalino baseball cap is made from a sweet merger of linen and wool, while The Cuffler (a high crowned, preshaped ivy cap) is crafted from a rich blend of beaver and hare fur felt. As a matter of fact, The Ettore, an exclusive newsboy (made by Borsalino exclusively for HartfordYork.com), is a mix of wool, silk and polyester, and the classic Matteo is an eight panel fashion ivy cap, perfect in tweed.
If you think cashmere is just for girls, think again! Look at the 100% cashmere scarf for men, called The Niccolo, a flawless match when paired with The Leonardo Cashmere Men's Cap. Another matching set is The Abruzzi Scarf and Newsboy, both made of the same fine Italian wool, and exclusively available at HartfordYork.com. For fur felt nearly as soft as cashmere, The Como Fedora (in a blend of beaver and rabbit) is a handsome choice that'll last a lifetime if treated well, and even The Silvestro Trooper, that tough little winter hat, is actually quite plush in soft cotton corduroy with a rabbit-like faux fur, and fully lined in satin.
Delight yourself (and others) with mens' hats from Borsalino this year.
