Breton Hats

The Breton hat is styled after the hats worn by agricultural workers in Brittany, France. Fishing and agriculture have always been major industries in the French province, and these hats have come to be associated with nautical attire.

What does the Breton hat look like? The men’s Breton hat looks different than the Breton hat for women. The traditional ladies’ version is made of lightweight material, such as cotton or wool felt. The round crown is fairly deep, and the brim is turned up all the way around the circumference. Men’s Breton caps are similar to Greek fisherman hats. They’re usually made of cotton, wool or leather, and they may have rope detailing above the visor.
