About our Italianate Hat

Fifteenth century fashion is nothing, if not dramatic, and a part of that drama comes from the panoply of headgear worn by both sexes throughout the period. We've chosen four different styles for our men's line that run the gamut from practical to outright outlandish; The Stuffed Chaperone, The Italianate Hat, The Acorn Hat and The Sock HatThe Italianate Hat is a distinctive piece of 15th century headwear, usually worn by the mercantile and upper classes. Originating in Italy, it was particularly popular with military men, as shown on portraits of Federigo da Montefeltro and Francesco Sforza. It can be worn tall for a really distinctive 15th c. look or with the brim turned up, for the shorter, more every day look.

Note: Due to the difficulty of representing colors accurately on a variety of monitors we've included color descriptions along with our swatches. Please use both when deciding on what color to order. Also, despite how the colors may appear on your monitor the same color names in Silk and Linen are different and do not exactly coordinate.
