Note: Please note, with the difficulty of accurately representing colors on a variety of monitors, the color names are meant as descriptions along with the 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 Wool, Silk and Linen are different and do not exactly coordinate.
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 Bag Hat. Our simplest 15th century hat style is the Bag or 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).
