Crooks & Castles   Pork Pie Hat

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 http://crooksncastles.com/” target=”_blank”>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 http://caliroots.com” target=”_blank”>Caliroots.

Whether or not this is a pork pie hat, do your research through a legit site, not Wikipedia. Additionally, I've been wearing a hat like this for 25 years and I've always called it a pork pie. In the end it's a killer hat so who cares?

Um, actually according to Wikipedia this is a Fedora. Not a Pork Pie. "A pork pie hat or porkpie hat is a type of hat made of felt or, less commonly, straw. It is somewhat similar to a trilby or a fedora, but with a flat top. The crown is short and has an indentation all the way around, instead of the pinch crown typically seen on fedoras and homburgs." ....Just sayin'

this is not a port pie. it is a fedora. just a curved up brim does not make it a pork pie.
