Trilby Hats

You need a keen eye not to confuse a trilby with a fedora. The main difference isn’t in the look, but in how the hats are worn. Trilby hats have a shorter brim, which is tilted down in the front. Fedoras, on the other hand, have a wider brim and are meant to be worn at a more level angle.
