A fancy hat of the type worn in Italy in the Middle Ages in your choice of brocade fabric. See choices in Brocades page.
I needed a hat that didn't look like the traditional flat cap. This hat was the perfect look and fit.
The hat is not as structure as the picture suggests. Its a bit floppy.
So I own both this hat and the corduroy version. This hat has much less structure than the corduroy one. However the brocade does match the brocade used in several other garments, which makes it a much better hat for constructing a cohesive outfit.
Construction quality is high. Materials are good.
I wear this hat with a deluxe horseman's tunic in matching brocade to present as a scholarly minor noble.
