Roxie’s Guide to Hats
The Trapper Hat
These are the warmest hats going in my opinion. These were first created to keep (as you may as guessed) fur trappers and hunters warm in the extremes of winter. That is why they sit low on the forehead and have long ear flaps, it’s an attempt to cover as much of your head as possible from the elements. They were typically made using rabbit or fox fur as the lining with a leather exterior. However, in the past couple of years they have re-surged in popularity; being worn as winter accessories and made out of many man made materials.
Personally my trapper hat is like a best friend to me. It is super warm and stays on my head with the ties on the bottom, which is what I need considering in it minus 35 degrees Celsius today where I live. But it is not only useful in the cold, but looks great untied with a scarf, casual sweater, jeans and booties. Also, in my opinion can be worn by any face but fit is very important so make sure it is the right size.
Stay tuned for more hat tidbits and factoids as I make my way through my entire collection of hats.
p.s. my luggage was returned to me this morning, I am overjoyed.
