Great Resource for Men’s Hats in the 19th Century


Some of you may already know about this site but I found it accidentally today.
It’s Clearwater Hats: www.clearwaterhats.com/ .
I think this site is a gold mine!
Its categories include CIVIL WAR, VICTORIAN, OLD WEST, and HOLLYWOOD. (Jude Law wore their Slouch hat in the movie, COLD MOUNTAIN.)
I didn’t know a Derby from a Bowler, or that there were/are different kinds of Top hats. They also show Homburgs, Trilbys, Pork Pies, Tucsons, Plantation hats and Panama hats.
Their historical photos are very informative too. You can tell men are always men – whether they’re in a ball cap turned backwards or in a top hat.
You can order any of their hats.

    I just checked out this site. What a great resource! I was already familiar with the different types of Civil War hats, both military and civilian, but this gives more information, plus pictures.
