This bicorn-style pirate hat is named after the infamous Frenchman Jean Laffite, who was as much of a businessman-racketeer as a pirate. The Jean Lafitte hat features wool felt construction. Jean Laffite controlled all sorts of illegal activities in New Orleans, as well as 10 vessels used for privateering and pirating. Using his fleet's cannons he aided General Andrew Jackson in defending the city of New Orleans against the British in the War of 1812 and was pardoned for his maritime crimes. Laffite became known as an American hero, although he did continue his life of piracy until his death in 1821.
