Description
Bollman added brands Kangol, Helen Kaminski and Ignite to it's growing family in this decade. The Company expanded its distribution throughout the world. As the clock struck midnight on January 1, 2000, the world did not crash and burn as many people suspected. Instead, people quickly forgot the Y2K scare and forged ahead into the new millennium. The decade saw devastating events for America such as the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 and the Hurricane Katrina disaster in 2005, both of which will have long-lasting impact on America. The decade saw escalating speed in innovation of computer technology with the rise of powerful websites like Google and Facebook. The decade also saw the increased use of devices like cellular phones and MP3 players. In 2008, Barack Obama was the first black President elected to office.
In the last half of the twentieth century, gender roles began to seriously morph and evolve. An illustration of this is the trend for females to wear hats normally reserved for men, which significantly rose in popularity throughout the 2000's. The fedora is one of the most common hats for women to wear that combines male and female fashion. This stingy-brim trilby is dressed in a blue grosgrain band and bow on grey felt, which features a teardrop crown with a dimensional brim that dips in front, is shorter on the sides and turned up in back. This hat comes in a special edition Bollman Heritage Hat Box.
