Borsalino celebrates its deep and lasting relationship with the world of cinema by introducing ‘The Bogart by Borsalino,’ a special collection dedicated to Humphrey Bogart, the great Hollywood actor who was a loyal Borsalino customer.
The relationship between the Hollywood actor and the Alessandria-based firm was always a special one, and became legendary thanks to Humphrey Bogart wearing the unforgettable Borsalino fedoras from his personal collection in many of his most iconic film roles.
Created in collaboration with the Humphrey Bogart Estate, The Bogart by Borsalino is now available in 4 models.
FALL WINTER 20-21 / CUT 05
If you think of the great Humphrey Bogart, both on set and in his daily life, a flood of descriptions most certainly comes to mind: elegant, casual, charismatic, iconic, versatile, and without a doubt his incredible sense of personal style. Dedicated to this kindred connection, Borsalino launches its fifth series collector’s hat the Bogart by Borsalino Cut 5 in exclusive partnership with the Humphrey Bogart Estate. The shape is one of Humphrey Bogart’s absolute favorites, with a high dome and medium brim, exclusively in warm turmeric shaved felt, the fedora style is cleverly paired with a floral hat band that sports a poppy motif and the elegant lines recall Borsalino’s sophisticated collection approach. Influenced in-part by 19th century Decandentism movement, where excess was both celebrated and cursed, and in perfect synchronicity,
inside the hat is one of the actor’s famous and humorous expressions - “Never trust a man who doesn’t drink” , imprinted on the internal brown leather Moroccan band. Additionally, the Bogart by Borsalino Cut 5 is featured with a collectible and dedicated hat box, inspired by the actor’s legendary 1952 Oscar win for his role in British-American film “The African Queen” (John Huston 1951.)

Two dedicated tributes adorn the inside of this special edition: a stylized Bogart silhouette engraved on the satin lining and one Bogart’s most famous phrase, "A character has to be slightly nuts. I suppose I am" imprinted on the internal brown leather Moroccan band. The Bogart by Borsalino Cut 4 also comes with its very own hatbox, inspired by the great Hollywood actor.

Inside the hat there are two special tributes to Bogart: a stylised silhouette of the actor features on the satin lining, while the brown leather inner band has an imprint of one of his most celebrated expressions, “At heart I am a lovable character.” The Bogart by Borsalino Cut 2 also boasts an elegant hatbox dedicated to the legendary Hollywood actor.
FALL WINTER 18-19 / CUT 01
The CUT 1, created from a precious mixture of hare and rabbit fur, reinterprets the typical shape of the fifties with a medium brim and a high dome. The gray “Sebino” felt has been matched with a charcoal Gray Canneté belt, closed by the ribbon with the characteristic logo of the legendary brand.
Inside, next to the gray satin lining on which Bogie’s silhouette and the Borsalino logo stand out, the hat conceals a secret: on the Moroccan black leather band, one of Humphrey Bogart’s iconic expressions is engraved in gold: “Do everything. One thing may turn out right.”
In honor of this style icon, Borsalino has captured shared inspiration with a series of street style video clips and pictures: Wear it, Style it, Interpret it from both Bogart aficionados and new fans.
