Stetson Pork Pie Hat

See the Stetson collection here

The pork pie hat, with its distinctive flat top and narrow brim, has endured as a timeless icon of style since its inception in the mid-19th century. Its origin lies in the working-class culture of the United Kingdom, particularly in the industrial towns of the Midlands. While its exact beginnings are somewhat murky, the hat gained widespread popularity among British and American men in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.




The pork pie hat also found favour among certain subcultures, particularly within the jazz and blues scenes of the early 20th century. Musicians such as Lester Young and Thelonious Monk were known for sporting pork pie hats, adding to its association with creativity and individuality. Its adoption by these influential figures helped cement its status as a symbol of counterculture and nonconformity.

The pork pie hat's origins may lie in the working-class culture of 19th-century Britain, but its influence has transcended social boundaries to become a symbol of style, individuality, and rebellion. From its humble beginnings to its continued presence in contemporary fashion, the pork pie hat remains a beloved accessory with a rich history and timeless appeal.

How do I find my hat size?

Take a measuring tape and place it at the back of your head. Next, draw both sides of the tape to the front, just above the ears and over the eyebrows, bringing it together roughly in the middle of your forehead. Please be careful not to pull the tape measure too tight. You can now use a mirror to read off your head circumference.

We recommend rounding up the number you see to the next full centimetre (e.g. round 57.5 cm up to 58 cm).
