I love this type of hat. It’s sort of the pimp-daddy of Elizabethan headwear, and I really think they should be more popular with rennies than they are.
This is a cute, easy little hat. If, for some reason, you only wanted to learn one kind of hat for your ‘bethan costuming, this would be it. The shape of the hat really responds to the fabric it’s made from – with a stiffer fabric, it has height and sophistication, and with a thinner fabric it’s totally flopsy and common.
This is a slightly untidy look that’s great for characters who are a little down on their luck, generally dishevelled, countrified, or who generally wish to convey that "aiming for fashion but missing" appeal.
