Pièce de Résistance

Pièce de Résistance

Paris has long been associated with the finer things in life, a city synonymous with gourmet food and drink, fine art and high fashion. So it’s fitting that our top-of-the-range trilby, our Rivoli Trilby, should take its name from one of the city’s most famous streets – and the home of our French outpost – the Rue de Rivoli.

The Rivoli Trilby, a structured trilby with a conical crown and medium brim, is made from the finest grade of beaver fur felt found anywhere in the Bates collection. The luxurious and incredibly dense fibres give beautiful colour clarity and are renowned for their robust qualities, offering excellent water repellency for wet-weather days.

A timeless style, which won’t go amiss in any urban setting, the Rivoli Trilby is a smart choice in our classic mid-brown or versatile navy blue or, for a bolder statement, try a standout lilac or cream colour. Truly a hat-lover’s hat, the Rivoli will add old-school charm and a certain je ne sais quoi to your seasonal look.
