Coke Hat - Mid 19th Century - synonymous with bowler hat.
Panamas and soft hats - became popular head attire from the mid 1800s. With styles such as the pork pie in both felt and straw and the helmet in straw being introduced in the mid-late 1800s. After this period men's hats varied little. To this day top hats and bowler hats continue to be worn for formal dress, with felts and panamas being worn for everyday wear. (source: thehatsite.com)

January 15 – Hat Day
Hats – I think they have been around since the beginning of time. I am sure Adam and Eve had some made out of leaves or something. I think it is interesting how some people look GREAT in hats and others look…well…not so great.
