The Trilby is a hat made for men. It is now also adopted by women, for a look to the flapper. Its shape reminds us of the Borsalino but with a short edge, significantly lowered in the front.

Face, morphology
If you have a nice regular face, deserving of a Greek statue, you are lucky ... There is no need to read the following lines, you can all wear. On the other hand, if you are not perfect (e), or rather, if you think you're not; or you have small complexes, choosing the right hat can erase you from these defects, while a wrong choice would make them more obvious.

Let’s take an example: you have protruding ears. Imagine a hat with a very short edge and ears which, exceed. Not great, right? On the contrary, a Borsalino, or cape, with a long edge, gives the impression that your ears are smaller in contrast.

In the same order of idea, if you have a big nose, also choose a long brimmed model, and wear it slightly leaning on the front, for look away from the nose.

With a wide or square face, choose a small brimmed model, it will refine your silhouette.

Conversely, for a narrow and elongated face, choose the longer edges which "break" the facial lines. You can even add a pair of glasses to accentuate the effect. Also avoid too high caps, certainly not a top hat!

If you have a round face, avoid melons or cloche hats and choose a skullcap wider than the face.

If your face is small, prefer the small edges to lengthen your silhouette.

However, if you are both small and chubby , with protruding ears and a very big nose, then all my efforts will have been vain. It only remains for you more that solution. Wear a hood!
