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 Tall Acorn Hat and The Sock Hat.If you want something that is quintessentially 15th century, but are a bit overwhelmed by ostentation, then our Short 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.

    I was looking for a hat for a very long time to tie my garb together. Glad I went with this one. Very nice quality, especially love that it is lined. Had to wait for the color I wanted to be made, but they were very communicative during the process. Overall very happy with the product and experience.
