We’ve Got Nothing Against Alan Arkin’s Hat in ‘Grudge Match’
“Grudge Match” is fighting for a place at the top of the list of comedy films released this holiday season.
The story centers around two retired boxers who are 30 years past retirement and looking for the rematch they never had in their youth. In a movie context, it is geriatric “Rocky” vs. “Raging Bull,” with Sylvester Stallone and Robert de Niro playing the leads.
Luckily, neither takes their role too seriously and they put on a good show about aging, boxing, enemies and aging.
Stallone’s trainer is played by Alan Arkin, who wears a┬áfedora through much of the movie. It is a brown dress hat with a shorter brim and a wide hat band. Click this sentence to see a link of Arkin in his hat.
At Hats Plus, we have two hats that make for great matches, if you want a hat of your own that looks like Arkin’s.
One of your best options is the Dobbs Jet in the color mink. It is a rich dark brown, features a short snap brim that can be worn up as Arkin wears it, and the Dobbs Jet also comes with a wide dress band.
Also available is a nice quality but less expensive Dynafelt Pinch in the color “wood” or brown.┬áWhereas the Dobbs Jet was made from fur felt, the Pinch fedora is made from a blend of wool. However, it shares many of the same features of Arkin’s hat. It has a short brim, wide hat band and brim that can be worn up or down.
