Fedora's hat is a classic men's felt hat with a small brim and three dents on the crown, wrapped in a ribbon. It was invented in 1910, and by the middle of the XXth century it became an essential attribute of a fashionable men's suit, especially in the West, in industrial cities.

Fedora also demanded that special etiquette be observed; the owner of the hat, greeting the lady, had to lift it with three fingers (for this, the dents on the crown are intended).
In the 60s, Fedora went out of fashion, but returned already in the 80s, moreover, becoming a hat not only for men, but also for women (probably, the girls wanted to feel like the girlfriends of gangsters).
