Instantly chic. Effortlessly cool. Always seems pull together every outfit once this gorgeously crafted piece is meticulously perched atop your crown, right? It’s no question that many of us love a stylish fedora. But the real question is: where to find one that is made responsibly?
Ever since I began shopping more ethically, this has been a question I ask often. I see a trend I love and want to try out, but am unsure where to find a similar piece made transparently? I’ve decided to take on a few popular styles we all know and love and debunk the mystery and burden of finding ethically made versions. First up? The classic fedora.
My particular fedora is vintage, which I victoriously scored secondhand on Etsy last year. Though you can’t buy my exact look, don’t be discouraged! I have three wonderful companies for him & her that produce brilliant, quality, ethically made fedoras in a variety of styles and price ranges.
Yellow 108 has a wide variety of fedoras in every color and style you could desire. Seriously, this shop has a little something for everyone. Each hat is made in the USA, and they even have a line of 100% salvaged wool and saved leather fedoras.
Priced range from $65 to $135.
Equal Uprise is a company I can personally recommend. Several months ago, I snagged some gorgeous pieces for our home and had a wonderful shopping experience.
With multiple styles and shades to choose from, you are bound to find the perfect fit.
Price range from $35 to $80.
Has your man been on the lookout for a sturdy, flat brim essential? Look no further than Whisler Civilian. A quintessential explorer look, this hat offers a fedora crown with a long brim.
Generously offered in five different sizing options to ensure excellent fit and styling.
Price range from $140-170.
If you’ve been loving the classic look of a fedora, I encourage you to invest in a quality piece that will not only last you for years, but was made in a responsible way. I truly hope this simple selection of options helps you find exactly what you’ve been looking for. See? Shopping ethically, even when you have your eye on a particular trend or style, isn’t as difficult as it may seem!
