WEAR: DIY leather trim wide brim fedora

Don't you just loathe it when you find that perfect "something" BUT, there's just one little detail off on it?  I've been on the hunt for a basic leather trim wide brim hat (try saying that three times fast), and came kind of close aside from the trim on it.

Well, you know what they say in life... if you don't like something, then By George, just fix it!

  • Wide brim hat (mine is from BCBGeneration)
  • (Faux) Leather belt (mine is a braided look from Forever21, less than $5)
  • E6000 Glue (you can also use super glue or craft glue)


Remove the old trim from the hat.  Fasten the leather belt along the trim of the hat and cut the excess length off (be careful to not fasten this too tight as it will cause bunches in the hat).  Glue the belt on and allow the glue to dry before wearing.

Hats off to you!
