About our Brimmed Cap 

 

Head-coverings were a critical component of dress in the Middle Ages. Hats were common with men and women of all classes, and came in a wide variety of forms, and made of a wide variety of materials. Men wore their hats alone or over a hood or coif. Our men's hats are based on a pattern that dates from circa 1315 to 1440 and is such a universal style that it is appropriate from the Late 13th century into the early Renaissance.
