Bicorns were the defining hat shape of C18th and descended from the Tricorn. They were made for European armies in 1790 but are mainly known for being worn by the French Emperor, Napoleon.
Bicorns were mainly worn by staff-officers and military generals. These hats are made from good quality black wool felt with an inner band and lining. The edges of the brim are bound and they can withstand some fairly rough treatment.
