Wouldn't this apply to the fedora? Sure looks like it has a Tyrol influence (same with most of hats posted on this forum).Originally Posted by Shaul-Ike Cohen
Also you can't throw them all into the same category. The Zapf hats I posted were designed for the Habsburg's. Certainly not common folk. Also the Bittner city hat.
Do you know how long companies like Mayser, Bittner, Zapf and Wegener have been making these type of hats?
Actually no. I think you need to brush up on your history. The Alpine (southern Germany, Austria, northern Italy) influence is undeniable.Originally Posted by Shaul-Ike Cohen
