An Aso Oke Hat (/ɑːˈʃoʊkeɪ/), a type of soft fez, is a traditional Yoruba hat that is made of hand woven Aso Oke, cotton, velvet, or damask. In the Yoruba language, this hat is called a Fila. Although these hats originated in Nigeria they are worn by many men of African descent. Typically, the top of the hat slouches to one side, and rests above the wearer's ear. It is said by some that slouching the hat right signifies unmarried man and left side indicate a married man. It is commonly worn with the Yoruba formal attire, Agbada (equally made with Aso Oke, lace or cotton) or brocade dashiki suits. Many men wear a bowler hat with the lace dashiki suit. However, an aso oke hat or crown style kufi cap are the most common choices when wearing any other type of formal attire.
