The Forgotten Fedora

Don't you just love it when you have a little wardrobe tidy and then you find something that you completely forgot you had?  I don't wear hats a great deal but there's just something uber-cool about a fedora.  I bought this one from Forever 21 about 3 or 4 years ago.  As soon as I laid eyes on it I had to have it.  Although I don't really shop in Forever 21 any more, I still love this hat and I'm so glad I re-discovered it hiding amongst my other hats.  I know you guys don't want to hear that it's years old and no longer available to buy so to soften the blow I've an idea on how you could DIY your own version of this hat.  It is of course that gold band which sets this apart from other fedoras so I have linked a couple of plain fedoras here and here (depending on your budget).  You could add gold band in the form of an elasticated hairband, these things are rife at this time of year thanks to festival season.  Or if you know of a good haberdashery store then head down there because they are like an Aladdin's cave when it comes to trims, I'm sure they would have some kind of gold leaf trim similar to that on my fedora.
