The hat style of the 1950s reemerged at the beginning of 2004, when celebrities such as Brad Pitt and Justin Timberlake tossed aside baseball caps and showed men how to wear a fedora with a retro swagger.
Today, the fedora is part of the trendy man’s casual uniform. *Droves of young men add the ironically formal fedora to their V-neck T-shirts, skinny jeans and chunky *sneakers for a 1950s, West Coast look.
Now, however, the hipster uniform is beginning to both bore and annoy people. “When a guy stepped out of my elevator yesterday wearing that look, I wanted to send a text to a friend of mine: ‘When is this look going to go away?’” said Los Angeles fashion stylist Albert Mendonca.
