The top 5 styles of fur hats for men aren't well known because men don't usually wear fur hats unless they are living in Arctic conditions or truly love Russian and mid to late seventies style. However, fur is considered a luxury thing to wear by many people and also is incredibly warm in cold conditions, as wearing animal fur is one of the best ways to hold in heat. Many people also consider wearing fur contributing to the cruel and unusual punishment of animals so you may want to look into getting faux fur hats if you are actually thinking about wearing this fur style, so you don't get paint thrown on you. Regardless of what you decide, check out the top 5 styles of fur hats for men listed below.
The fur covered Russian style hats are one of the most recognizable and popular styles of men's fur hats, made famous by the Communist party leaders who wore them to political events during the chill of the Russian winter, fall and spring which were broadcast on television around the world. These hats are in the shapes of squares with an oval top for the crown of the head and are lined with thick fur on all areas. It is excellent for keeping your head warm in Siberian temperatures, but a bit comical to wear anywhere else, as it makes a man's head substantially bigger.
Aviator hats are hats which were classically worn by the earliest pilots who were flying in open air planes at high speeds a few thousand feet above the ground. They wore these hats because it's much colder with that amount of wind at that altitude and it would keep their heads from freezing. These hats were lined on the inside with fur and on the outside with leather, holding in as much heat as possible yet also being light, thin and aerodynamic so the pilot could move their heads easily. While these hats are only a fashion statement now, they are a funny and sometimes cool fur hat for men to wear.
With a similar design to the aforementioned aviator hat, the men's Trooper hat was originally popularized by state troopers in northern states like North Dakota and upstate New York who constantly had to climb out of their cruisers in the dead of winter to write tickets or investigate things. These hats have leather on the outside and fur on the inside and are funny to wear if you're not a member of law enforcement.
Mountain man hats are some of the more outrageous fur hats for men as these still have the heads and paws of the skinned animals on them and often include the full pelt which drapes down a man's neck and upper back, as if he lived in the mountains and skinned the animal himself. This is an intense look and will draw more people giving you dirty looks or possibly tossing paint.
Another Russian fur cap is the Cossack cap which is a very popular men's fur hat style, as it is basically a ski cap made from fur. This one comes in a number of different styles and types of fur and may be one of the best to get with faux fur and wear on a regular basis anywhere it is cold.
