The tricorne or tricorn is a style of hat that was popular during the 18th century, falling out of style by 1800, though actually not called a "tricorne" (three cornered hat) until the mid-1800s. Tricornes had a rather broad brim, pinned up on either side of the head and at the back, producing a triangular shape. These hats allowed stylish gentlemen to show off the most current fashions of their wigs. Tricornes ranged from the very simple and cheap to the extravagant, occasionally incorporating gold or silver lace trimming and feathers. In addition, military and naval versions usually bore a cockade or other national emblem at the front. Pirates would steal gentlemens hats and then wear them until they basically fell apart, so if your hat has seen better days, all the better. This hat is constructed of 100% full grain tanned and treated leather. The outer portion of the brim has been treated with a leather protector and waterproofed. Both sides have been laced in place with leather string. This entire hat has been custom made and hand stitched for a quality piece that will last throughout the years. Don this beautiful hat the next time you find yourself dressing up in Pirate garb just make sure you take it off before you walk the plank. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!
