Although we call this a cavalier hat because of its connection to the Musketeers in the 17th century, it was actually made popular during the 16th century by the Lansquenets, German mercenary soldiers, who decorated them with cuts and slashes, braids and feathers....lots of feathers! Of course, it was worn much earlier and in other countries as well, but not as flamboyantly.
This listing is for a wide brim felt hat with one side laced up with soutache cord forming an "x" shape. This makes it easy to attach a fashion brooch because the felt is too thick to fasten one through it. We have long ostrich feathers available to slip through the laces or tuck between the crown and brim.
The hat crown is about 4” high and the brim is approx. 4” wide. It will be blocked and sized before shipping. Black only!
No feathers with this listing! Check in Feathers and Masks section for long ostrich feathers, pheasant tail feathers or peacock eyes that are available to slip through the laces or tuck between the crown and brim.
We can also add hat bands to this style. If interested in adding a hat band and/or feathers to your order, send a convo and we will give you FREE S&H for the additional items.
NOTE - Made to Order - Please allow a couple of days for us to make this hat especially for you!

I received my black cavalier hat yesterday. It was packaged very well; the feathers were wrapped in heavy paper separately so everything was undamaged. The hat itself is very well made and I'm anxious to wear it as part of my pirate garb this summer. Thank you, Gwen!
