ALL ABOUT THE HAT: SS15: Bailey’s Noteworthy Technology: Litestraw®

It’s Thursday: You just got done with your last round of after work drinks.  You’re about to head home and the rain starts. It wasn’t supposed to rain. Your rain jacket: at home. Your umbrella: no idea. The hat you wore, now in your briefcase/tote/rolling trunk is the kind that no water can penetrate.  It’s glazed with Bailey of Hollywood’s finishing technology called LiteStraw® .  We developed this process to protect you against the rain, give the hat a softer feel and help keep the hat shape no matter how many times you lean on it. The indestructible choice for the Bailey® Man of Style.

The term pin-up girl originated from Burlesque performers and actresses using photographic advertisement as business cards and these were “pinned- up” on walls. Later on in 20th-century, film houses used these to their advantage having their actresses both drawn and photographed and put on posters to be sold for personal entertainment and film advertisement. One of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable, whose poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of G.I.s during World War II

EDITOR'S PICKS: SS15 Summer Style featuring Panama

The Panama Hat is handsome, lightweight and provides shelter from the sun. This straw hat of Ecuadorian origin is made from Toquilla leaves and gets its name from the hat being worn during the construction of the Panama Canal.

The Cutler done in the Cuenca Weave is our take on the “urban cowboy.” Whether you’re lounging by a campfire or at a weekend brunch this hat will make you look like a sophisticated survivor.

Try the Roll Up, a classic style that’s been around for decades, for that ‘old-wordly’ look. As the name says, it rolls up, comes with a carry bag, and can be easily tucked into a weekender.

The Purefoy is an ode to the heritage: a little bit Puritan with a lot of style, this hat looks great when paired with linen or selvage denim.
