Anybody like or dislike them for rendezvous wear?


It is pitiful when a man lets his ego push his intelligence beyond his ignorance.

I like them.
Last Saturday I attended a seminar that had nothing to do with reenacting or anything old. Yet, there was one guy there who wore a similar top hat, except his was black. He also had a long beard that dropped halfway down to his waist. Just a "character", I guess.

Looks good on you Bull... Myself, I don't think it looks right. IMHO, some hats fit a person, and some don't. Smiler

Top Hats for rendezvous, nope no problems.

I wonder at the shape of them, for there were a great many, and I have not idea from a historic point which to use IF I was to do Maryland Rifleman for War of 1812....

I like all of those styles, but I have an enormous head. So I had to go as close to correct as I could get and as big as I could get. This is the only one I found in a size 8.

Well you probably have saved me some time and effort, as I too have a "large grape". Wink
