Pharrell’s Hats Make Us ‘Happy’

Biltmore Selkirk

In the video to "Happy" Pharrell Williams wears a teardrop crown fedora very similar in size and shape the the Biltmore Selkirk pictured here. This hat comes in a deeper brown, but the Driftwood above is actually more brown and grey in real life and a closer approximation of the color, though by no means a close match to the color of Pharrell's hat.

The artist Pharrell Williams is one of the hottest in music today. As both a performer and a producer, everything he touches seems to go to number 1. From “Blurred Lines” last summer to “Happy,” which almost an Academy Award earlier this month, and a whole lot more, Pharrell’s work keeps going straight to the top.

In addition to loving his upbeat and playful neo soul sounds, we love his obsession with hats. It is something we have in common.

Although we don’t carry his famed blown-out-crown-oversized-Canadian-Mountie hat, we do have a hat very similar to the one he wears predominently in the video for “Happy.” (Click here to watch the video on YouTube.)

For most of the video he is wearing a light brown felt fedora with a teardrop crown, narrow hat band and large brim. We have a very similar hat in the Biltmore Selkirk. It doesn’t come in the exact color, but it has a large 2 3/4-inch brim, teardrop crown and narrow hat band. It also has a killer stitched-edge brim. We have it in a rich brown and a lighter color called “Driftwood,” which I think is a closer approximation of Pharrell’s topper. In real life the Driftwood is a little browner and greyer than in the photo.

If you Google Pharrell under images, you will find him wearing myriad hats that include center dent fur felts and panama straw fedoras.

If you are looking for┬áa specific hat he wears, send us an image in an e-mail, and we’ll try to identify it for you.
