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.

Local designers, Sarah Jane Estes and Pilar Marite have launched a lingerie line called Penny Royale. To celebrate, there will be a trunk show at Street Scene (2575 Regency Road) 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 9 with champagne and sweets and a runway show featuring the collection’s lace panties and camisoles (pictured above).
Pieces are made from a modal and cotton blend and bamboo fabric. And each pair is accented with either lace or velvet.
“Pilar and I are both really big fans of the high waisted cut,” said Estes. “So the majority of our underwear will have a fit that is higher than what many people are used to seeing.”
Starting Feb. 9 Street Scene will carry sizes small, medium, large, and extra large. All underwear will be $25.

While I grew up in small-town Kentucky I’ve always been fascinated with the cosmopolitan world of high fashion. On the other hand, I love a bargain and the thrill of shopping for just the right piece.
I have a degree in English from the University of Kentucky, and since 2002 I’ve written a column for the Lexington Herald-Leader about shopping, beauty and fashion. During that time I’ve interviewed everyone from designers to boutique owners about trends and style. And I’m still forever searching for the next big sale.
