For the individualist, sophistication and elegance can be hard art forms to nail. Every style standard has its stalwart defender after all, and the rules of men's formalwear are fluid in their strictness. Fortunately, there are some formal accessories that deftly toe the line between expectation and devastation. Take this derby hat for example. Made of a resilient and attractive wool felt, its soft sculpting and subtle styling — including a thin band and piped brim — will surely help any gentleman bowl over the room with the way he blends cool contemporary style with a more classic aesthetic.
