1940s Bollman Collection Pork Pie
by Bollman Hat Company
A standard during Jazz's glory age, the Pork Pie gained relevance during a time of worldly transition, as evidenced by its growing popularity among celebrities and public figures. Physicist Robert Oppenheimer regularly wore a pork pie hat during his field studies. Jamaican ska artist Laurel Aitken even wrote the tune 'Give Me Back My Pork Pie Hat' as a tribute. Its namesake inspired by the British delicacy, the Pork Pie's distinctive dents around the crown and low flat top was a comfortable look in an unsettling time. Dozens of Bollman Hat Company employees gave their lives serving their country in World War II. Many of their letters home have been preserved and hang in the hall of the Company's main office today. This hat comes in a special edition Bollman Heritage Hat Box.
