While we’ve been caught up in 2019 hat stats this week, I wanted to acknowledge a smart new hat that made its debut at Sandringham over the weekend:
In grey felt, the rounded, bowler-style crown is unusually asymmetrical with a gentle peak on one side and a gently side swept brim. The hat is simply trimmed with a pair of curving quills and white felt starflowers centered with ombre grey feathers. While the crown shape seems a little awkward, I really like how the hat’s trim links with Her Majesty’s grey and cream checked coat.
Previously Worn: this hat is new
I don’t have access to my usual archive (I’m quietly away from home this week attending a family medical emergency) but wonder if we’ve seen this coat before with a different hat- I seem to remember a Breton style hat with feathers. Can any of you help? In the meantime, what do you think about this new hat?
