Tyrolean hat

The Tyrolean hat (also Bavarian hat) is a hat named for the Tyrol in the Alps. Tyrolean hats are made of felt with a cord wrapped around the base of the crown and a feather or brush on the side as trim.

In the 1960s, it was popular for tourists visiting the region to collect pins from local cities and adorn their hats with them.

One of the more popular brands is Wells & Coverly, and to be worn a little smaller then your actual hat size, so the hat sits on top of the head rather than over it.
