About our Acorn 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 Hat.If you want something that is quintessentially 15th century, but are a bit overwhelmed by ostentation, then our Acorn Hat is perfect for you. As simple as the chaperone is overblown, it is probably the single-most popular hat of the 15th century, worn by soldiers, craftsmen, artisans and even court dandies.

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.
