The hat is typically creased lengthwise down the [[Sweatband (hat)|crown]] and "pinched" in the front on both sides.<ref>Cotton, Elizabeth (1999). ''Hats''. Stewart, Tabori & Chang.</ref> Fedoras can also be creased with teardrop crowns, diamond crowns, center dents, and others, and the positioning of pinches can vary. The typical crown height is {{convert|4.5|in|cm}}.
The brim is usually approximately {{convert|2.5|in|cm}} wide, but may be wider,<ref name="Kilgour"/> can be left "raw edged" (left as cut), finished with a sewn ''overwelt'' or ''underwelt'', or bound with a trim-ribbon.
The term ''fedora'' was in use as early as 1891. Its popularity soared, and eventually it eclipsed the similar-looking [[Homburg (hat)|homburg]].<ref name="Kilgour"/> Fedoras can be found in nearly any color, but black, grey, tan ("fawn"), and dark brown are the most popular.
Some fedoras have no crease and are also referred to as bucket style hats.

The word ''fedora'' comes from the title of an 1882 play by dramatist [[Victorien Sardou]], ''[[Fédora]]'', written for [[Sarah Bernhardt]].<ref>Encarta Dictionary, Microsoft Encarta Premium Suite 2004.</ref> The play was first performed in the United States in 1889. Bernhardt played Princess Fédora, the heroine of the play. During the play, Bernhardt, a notorious cross-dresser, wore a center-creased, soft brimmed hat. It was popular for its stylishness and its ability to protect the wearer's head from the wind and weather.{{Citation needed|date=August 2013}} Since the early part of the 20th century, many [[Haredi Judaism|Haredi]] and other [[Orthodox Judaism|Orthodox]] [[Jew]]s have made black fedoras normative to their daily wear.<ref>Shields, Jody, and John Dugdale (1991).
