This film is about two brothers that run a successful liquor business in Franklin County, but one of their friends decides that they will use their bar for illegal activities, once this happens all hell breaks loose!! In this film they show a huge selection of characters in different hats! It’s a great watch we would highly recommend it! One of the main hats in which the actors wear is the famous Fedora hat. One in particular hat that stood out to us is the one in which Forrest wears played by Tom Hardy, we have found it to be very similar to our Christy’s Hat Foldaway Fedora in the colour brown. This hat is perfect as its foldaway so you can shape this hat to which ever style suits you, or you could style it so it’s almost identical to Tom Hardy’s hat! It is made from fur felt, has a grosgrain head band included and is packable.

Hats in Movies – Lincoln, Django Unchained & Gangster Squad

With movies such as Lincoln, Gangster Squad and Django Unchained being release in the last month and over the coming weeks, you can see some amazing hats in films this year.  I can only imagine that costume designers have loved these period piece films to keep them busy and show off some of the famous hat styles throughout history.

Spielberg’s presidential epic, Lincoln, covers top hats.

Lincoln - Daniel Day-Lewis

Gangster Squad, with Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling has the fedora hat of the 1940’s sorted out.

Gangster Squad

Tarantino’s, Django Unchained has DiCaprio, Foxx and Waltz all sporting some awesome cowboy hats.

Django Unchained

We could even throw The Hobbit in with these movies because Gandalf has a pretty awesome wizard hat which would be a great costume.
