: The word Trilby is an alusion to the novel by the same name by George du Maurier. Meanwhile Fedora comes from the play Fédora by Sardou. A fedora is a trilby and a trilby is a fedora.

...and the term "fedora" is based on the style hat that the main character "Fedora" created and wore IN that particular play meotnione above, which won rave reviews and demands of the public of the hat industry to copy the style for sale to the masses, so your comparison is right in allegory, but then not quite right in description. (grins) Ah, ain't trivia interesting!? Regards. Michaelson
