Tricorne is a popular 18th-century hat with a three-sided brim folded upward and cocked together using a button, pin, or lace. It was worn by people of all stature in the society during that period, including royals, soldiers, and civilians.

Tricorne is typically a men’s hat, and its shape served two purposes; first was showing off the stylish wigs and hairstyles worn underneath; the second was the ease of tucking it in a pocket or under the arm due to its small size.

Tricornes were mostly mare from animal fiber and decorated with lace, trims, and feathers. Those made from wool were slightly on the cheaper side, while those made from beaver felt were expensive. If the Tricorne was meant for royalty, it was decorated with gold and silver lace or trims.
