After all the hoopla about fanciful women’s hats at the British royal wedding and the Kentucky Derby,
it’s about time that styles for men had their day in the sun.
Matt Ransdell, owner of Matt’s Hats, which opens Wednesday inside Street Scene, 2575 Regency Road, says that men’s hats are hotter than ever and that Lexington needs a new place to find them.
“I’m trying to fill a void here in town,” Ransdell said. “I was a customer at the Mad Hatter,” a longtime downtown Lexington retailer that closed in 2007.
Ransdell will carry more than 28 styles of men’s hats, including fedoras, riding caps and porkpies. (Those styles would look just as good on women paired with a sheer summer skirt or a linen jacket.) Labels will include Bailey of Hollywood, Scala and Stetson.
Street Scene will host a grand opening of Matt’s Hats from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday with food and refreshments. The woven fedora (shown above) from Bailey of Hollywood is available for $55 at Matt’s Hats.

Pieces are made from a modal and cotton blend and bamboo fabric. And each pair is accented with either lace or velvet.
