Pork Pie Hats
The Pork Pie style hat has been a popular style since the mid-19th century, reaching it's peak popularity between the 1920s-1940s. The hat bears a similar resemblance to an actual Pork Pie, a popular British food. Many beilve that this may be where the hat's name originates from. The first Pork Pie style hats were worn by women and trimmed with ribbons and feathers. In the 20th century the hat transitioned to being more of a men's style hat with the style changing slightly. The Pork Pie is known for it's short brim and a creased, rounded crown. In the 1920s silent film actor Buster Keaton wore many Pork Pie style hats made from both straw and felt. In the recent decades they have become a popular accessory among many jazz musicians, hipsters, and Bryan Cranston as Walter White on the TV show Breaking Bad.
