This three cornered tricorn hat with gold braid is good for all kinds of 17th and 18th century characters.
It's made of soft dressed fabric and so is more forgiving of rought treatment than a felt hat which can be useful in situations where you could get wet and frisky or both.
My hat, it has three corners, three corners has my hat.
Highway men, captains and lords all sported a black tricorn. Great Poldark prop.
