If you've heard rumors about a new SuperDuper fedora, it's true -- we've got The Parabuntal Grey ready for your order. It's a rare find crafted in Italy from decades-old woven parabuntal fiber by Pitti Uomo award winning designer Matteo Gioli. It's one of the lightest, and finest, fedoras you will ever experience and sports a handsome dark grey band set on grosgrain trim. This is in addition to the other SuperDuper fedoras brought back this season, The Parabuntal Black, and the paper braid fedora, both made by hand, one at a time, and are offered exclusively by Hartford York. You will not be disappointed.
Another back-by-demand fedora, is a Tracy Watts' hat, hand-blocked in toyo straw and made in NYC. Called The Vinnie, it's got a soft weave, bound edge and matching contrast grosgrain ribbon trim. Finishing touches on this unlined hat include a decorative button tether. One satisfied customer who ordered his in natural/navy says he "couldn't be happier with the color combination," adding that "the brim's bound edge was more of a royal blue, and [he loves] how it works with the navy ribbon band."
