About our Sock 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. Our simplest 15th c. hat style is the Sock Hat  which was particularly popular with soldiers in the third quarter of the century. A simple, long-tailed cap, this cap and scarf in one was the perfect way to stay warm while on garrison duty or a long march. You can change the look and the fit by how much of it you roll up (the more you roll it, the bigger the roll, the tighter it will fit).

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.
