The faux fur Men's Stromel is the hat commonly worn by Hasidic Jews and orthodox rabbis. The hat is also known as a shtreimel. It is worn only by married Jews on Shabbat, Jewish holidays and specials. Make Halloween the special occasion for you to dress like a Rabbi and wear this Men's Stromel With Payis. Payis are the ear locks that dangle from the temples. That is, the temples on your head, not the temples where you pray!
