Differences and Style Highlights of the 504 and 507 Kangol Hats
Kangol offers a range of hat shapes from trilbies to baseball caps and everything in between. These hats are hip, and popular among Hollywood elites, hip-hop stars, influencers and others, and they give you a sense of confident, self-assured style that tells the world you are hip, sexy and cutting edge.
Two of the more distinctive and well-known flat caps made by Kangol are the 504 and 507. These Kangols capture the essence of this company’s unique style and each is firmly embedded in the culture. In short, when you look for icons of the company, you think of the 504 and 507.
What’s the Difference Between the 504 vs the 507?
The difference between the Kangol 504 vs the 507 caps are slight but noticeable. Both the 504 and 507 Kangol hats are flat caps, but they have different shapes. The 507 has a slightly sharper appearance with a crown that is taller in the back and comes to a sharper point in the front. The 504 is rounder and flatter all around.
When to Wear the 504 and 507 (and what to pair it with)
Interestingly, each hat draws its name from the hat form it is made on (forms 540 and 507). So, since they are made on different forms they always have that different look.
The 504 pairs with more distinctive outfits like a sport blazer and overcoat, or a sweater. It’s also a colder-weather hat—wear it in the fall or springtime, and winter if it is not too cold.
Meanwhile the 507 with its dramatic slope from front to back and sharper overall appearance looks better with lighter weight clothing, perhaps a sport jacket, lightweight leather jacket, t-shirt or more casual sport clothes.
Choose the 504 when you want a richer accent that’s more classy than sporty, and choose the 507 for a sharp, modern appearance that is clean and aggressive.
Basically, if you like a sporty appearance, opt for the 507 vs the 504 which offers a much more distinctive shape and style. When you want a more authoritative and subdued by assured style, choose the 504.
