Until World War II such uniforms were worn by even junior embassy staff but now survive only for ambassadors in a few long-established diplomatic services such as those of Britain, France, Sweden, Belgium and Spain. Governors of United Kingdom overseas territories may wear a cocked hat with white swan-feather plume, or in tropical territories, a plumed pith helmet.

If a hat is too small, it will sit too high up on your head so if you are in-between sizes, it's generally best to go up a size and add some hat padding. The bicorne inherited several modifications from a large military headgear from the beginning of the 17th century. This excellent quality material, sought after for its resistance and fashionable since the 16th century, undermined the population of these peaceful animals, a few colonies of which lived in France and more numerous in northern Europe.

g. at Prorogation) the Lords Commissioners wear plain black bicorne hats with their parliamentary robes (except the Lord Chancellor who, if present, wears his tricorne).

The Republic quickly adopted it for its generals and representatives of the legislative and administrative power. the rim is folded up on itself to form a bicorn, decorated with golden trim, tassels on each side and a golden button on the front. Of the four taken with him to Saint Helena, one was placed in his coffin, which is to say the importance Bonaparte attached to his bicorne and the symbol they represented in the eyes of his intimates. No need to look for beaver hair on these historic bicornes, the softer and old leather no longer wears one. An exception of prestige which, however, only manages to equal in our imagination what this forehead wore the most and the best, this simple and black hat, without braid or embellishment.This hat is perfect to recreate famous characters as Napoleon or Captain Jack Aubrey (Russel Crowe) from Master and Commander.

A strategist gifted both in the military and in propaganda, Napoleon had a character that easily accommodated himself to precisely what set him apart from the crowd. Because it was he who, from his Parisian boutique at the Palais – Royal, delivered the famous “French hat” to the General, First Consul and then Emperor.

The first two are in Paris, we can see the towers of Notre-Dame in the background, then here are ancient columns: Italy and Egypt. The points or “corns” were placed parallel to his shoulders, a style referred to as “en bataille”, in contrast to the majority of his officers, who wore theirs at right angles to their shoulders. The first item invoiced to Napoleon I, namely “a full-size embroidered hat”, is sold for 660 francs, a fortune compared to the simple black beaver hat! Please note when we receive two or more absentee bids for the same amount, the first bid received will be the one taken.
