This Postilian hat, so named for the post chaise coach riders of France who preferred to wear them, came onto the fashion scene around 1780. Their popularity dramatically increased over the next ten years, and by 1810 they had virtually replaced the tricorn. These tapered top hats remained popular until about 1830. Stretched right here in our hat shop from rabbit-fur felt and finished by our own Milliner. Trimmed with a leather hatband with brass buckle and lined with an adjustable linen liner for a perfect fit. Comes with a Hat Jack!
