Hats for oval faces

An oval face fits almost any hat style. You can choose between various models, such as the Panama Montecristi superfino , the Sanremo Panama or the Fedora Coccos .

Hats for round faces

To balance the curves of a round face, opt for hats with squarer lines and straight brims, like the Classic Trilby or Traditional Fedora .

Hats for square faces

Hats for rectangular or elongated faces
