No Prohibition of Fedoras in “J. Edgar”

Submitted by on December 3, 2011 – 10:02 pm

Leonardo DiCaprio continues rockin’ the fedora in his latest period film,”J. Edgar“where he plays the title role. It is an intense bio pic by director Clint Eastwood.


For those who haven’t seen it, J. Edgar Hoover was America’s number one lawman from the desperate days of the 1930s, helping to put an end to the careers of bank robbers such as John Dillinger, until his death in the 1972. He both modernized and centralized crime fighting in America.

In the film, DiCaprio’s Hoover sports a grey teardrop crown fedora with a wide band much like the Biltmore Ark. Biltmore’s Ark is a handsome fur felt fedora that has a confident air of authority. A similar hat but with a narrower hat band is the Stetson Downs. Fans who want to replicate Dicaprio’s look will be a winner either way.
