Size Information: Hat runs 1 size large. Order 1 size down from your original hat size.

Made in the USA

A standard during Jazz's glory age, the Pork Pie gained relevance during a time of worldly transition, as evidenced by its growing popularity among celebrities and public figures. Physicist Robert Oppenheimer regularly wore a pork pie hat during his field studies. Jamaican ska artist Laurel Aitken even wrote the tune "Give Me Back My Pork Pie Hat" as a tribute.
Its namesake inspired by the British delicacy, the Pork Pie's distinctive dents around the crown and low flat top was a comfortable look in an unsettling time. Dozens of Bollman Hat Company employees gave their lives serving their country in World War II. The third generation of Bollman family now led the Company and kept in touch with employees serving in the military, and provided regular updates to it's workforce at home on those lost in action, in captivity, injured and those returning home. Some of these letters have been preserved and hang in the hall of the Company's main office today.
