SUGAR-LOAF HAT

Picture of Sugar-Loaf_Hat

A sugar-loaf hat (properly a Copotain) is a flat-topped, conical hat that was typically worn in Britain from the 17th to the early 18th centuries by both men and women - the women wearing the hat when travelling or riding, and became typical of the costume of the Puritans. By the early Georgian period at the start of the 18th century the sugar-loaf hat was no longer fashionable, wigs being popular in place of hats.
