Very flamboyant Landsknecht hat featuring double layered crown with decorative slashing, similar design slashing on the underside of the extra wide brim, and puffs of contrast colour along the edge. Wear pinned at a jaunty angle over a coif, and add feathers for a totally over the top look (feathers not provided)
In wool melton (occasionally a wool blend, some colours are hard to get in pure wool) stiffened with buckrum and brim reed, to be worn at a jaunty angle pinned to a coif for best stability. All visible stitches hand sewn.
Similar hats can be made to order in different shades subject to fabric availability. Good wool canbe tricky to get and need special ordering. More shades are possible if we also consider other fabrics especially for linings and slashes, drop me a line to discuss if you have a particular shade in mind.
Made to order. The way our order book is currently working, we open the shop approximately once a month for new commissions and shut it again once we have as many orders as we think we can realistically make over the next 4-6 weeks. Please be aware that your order may fall anywhere into that timescale. We'll always aim to be as prompt as we can.
