If you weren’t aware, it’s true. The fedora was created specifically, for actress Sarah Bernhardt, for her role as Princess Fedora in the play Fedora. Linky-type source!

That said, I have nothing against fedoras! My doppelganger has one that she and I have dubbed “the fuck you/quittin’ hat”, and we’ve worn it for just such occasions. So don’t give me hat hate, guys. Hats in general are awesome. It’s just sometimes the people underneath them that aren’t.
