This is a broad-brimmed pirate hat with a dashingly up-turned front brim. It's big and bold like the Scottish sea captain William Kidd from New York, who was employed by the English crown as a privateer. Wool felt available in an oil/wax treatment, as well as untreated or acrylic-treated. Kidd and his crew of cutthroats were commissioned to capture all French ships and the Pirates of Madagascar. After near-mutiny from his crew along the way, and having to kill his chief gunner in hand-to-hand combat, William Kidd turned pirate and plundered any ship along India's coast. Their biggest score was the Quedagh Merchant, a treasure ship of 400 tons. Returning home to New York with a ship filled to the gunwales with swag, Kidd tried, but could not fool the authorities that a large part of his treasure rightfully belonged to the powerful British East Indian Trade Co. He was clapped into irons and returned to England for trial and execution.


A Captain Jack's Exclusive Acrylic Treatment. This offers moderate weatherproofing and gives the hat a dull matte finish, great for a weathered look. Rigid and a scarf or bandana should be worn for comfort.
