Not many details are known about the origin(s) of pork pie hat except the style first appeared in the 18th century. Named for its similarity in appearance to a pork pie, the hat was originally a women's headwear till it gradually became a staple for men as well.
With the resurgence in interest of "gentlemen" headwear recently, so has the popularity of the pork pie hat. Various incarnations have appeared since, including a recent variant from Crooks & Castles. Hand weaved in straws, a logo imprinted hat band wrapped around the brim. Available in natural or black, the Crooks & Castles Pork Pie Hat is now on sale at Stockholm's Caliroots.
