How Borsalino Makes A Men's Fedora Hat | MR PORTER



The name may no longer be universally familiar, but there was a time when this 160-year-old company was synonymous with fine gentlemen’s fedoras. At its peak, in the first half of the 20th century, Borsalino was crafting in excess of two million hats per year and employing 3,000 people. It dominated the market to such an extent that the word “borsalino” even appeared in the Oxford English Dictionary as a noun used to describe “a man’s wide-brimmed felt hat”. It made it into the movies, too.

If you’ve watched Casablanca, you’ll have seen Hollywood legend Mr Humphrey Bogart wearing a Borsalino fedora. If you’ve watched Borsalino, a 1970 gangster film starring Messrs Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo, which was named after the hat-maker at Mr Delon’s request, then you’ll have seen plenty of them.

As you’d expect from one of the watch market's most influential tastemakers, his selection hit all the right notes in terms of desirability, uniqueness and investment potential; perhaps more pertinently, though, the watches he chose were wearable across a wide range of scenarios. Which, ultimately, is what Styled is all about.

Mr P. My Way | Painter, Mr Aten Molly | MR PORTER

Half-Croatian, half-Surinamese and named after Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten, Mr Molly is a quite a character. It’s hard not to envy the life of peaceful solitude he has carved out for himself here, or to admire the boldness he has shown in choosing to eschew traditional life goals – salaried employment, home ownership and so on – in favour of forging his own path. And, as we found out when we visited his home, his sense of style is every bit as offbeat and idiosyncratic as the man himself.

The result was Café Binnenvisser, which opened its doors for the first time last summer and has since earned a reputation not just for its wide selection of natural wines but for its skilfully executed seasonal menu, too. Before the beginning of another busy night, we took a moment to chat with the café’s co-owner about the good things in life: food, wine, vintage cars and clothes.
