    I was looking through hats to add to the blue hat thread and realized how much purple I was seeing. So I went to look for the thread dedicated to purple hats and saw there was none and figured with some of the amazing ones I've seen posted here I'm clearly not the only one who enjoys a nice plum colored hat, and they too deserve a place of highlight.

    "Gloria" Backbow with Crease Clip. The Wool felt (Ferrum) and ribbon (Veilchen) colors are very unique (both Violets).

    The plum hue of this Barrister fedora was always difficult to photograph. I haven't owned it for some time.

    Definitely a hat that was on my mind when naming the thread. Bob did the rare job of not only creating a hat that pays amazing tribute, but also something I easily could have seen him wearing.

    One of my favorite part about Bob's work is all the little tiny details he meticulously adds.

    Great additions from everyone here.

    I think this one is easily the most aggressively purple hat I own. A hard shell bowler in maroon sold at Harrod's and more than likely made by the same supplier as Dunn Co.

    Really unique shade of plum/brown that seems to change based on what direction you look at it from.
