Welcome to the Hat Guide

Welcome to the Hat Guide where we aim to gather together information about hats. So, what is a hat? Sounds simple enough, but let’s define it – a hat is a head covering used for several reasons. It may be worn for protection against the elements, for ceremonial or religious reasons, for safety, or as a fashion accessory. In the past, hats were an indicator of social status. In the military, they may denote nationality, branch of service, rank and/or regiment.

We hope you enjoy reading and finding out more about hats.
