You’re the first to spot the sails o’ a ship on the horizon, and so the chase begins. You and your crewmates have a reputation as the most formidable pirates on the sea, and it’s time to defend your title.
You board the merchant’s ship with your cutlass at the ready. They have heard o’ your flag before, and so they be surrendering smartly. Good. This be easy loot! You and your crew pack what plunder you can find before a Royal Navy ship can come along, but as you pass the miserable captain you notice his tricorne hat. The hat is your share o’ the profit with a simple snatch from the man’s head.
A mighty fine Pirate Hat it is, too.
Epic Armoury’s “tricorne” Pirate Hat is handmade from natural full-grain quality leather and sturdy stitching, embellished with cotton canvas and laced leather around the brim. Inspired by popular 18th century hats of the time, its brim is turned up and pinned to form a triangle around the crown with leather lacing. With regular leather care, you can expect this hat to add a special touch to your kit for a long time!
Referred to as a “tricorne” or “cocked hat”
Popular by the end of the 17th century as both civilian fashion and military uniform
Typically worn with the point facing forward, although soldiers would often wear it pointed above their left eyebrow to allow their rifle to be rested on their shoulder
