The trapper hat has a long and interesting history. First worn by, you guessed it, trappers, in the 1600s, they became a fashion darling when early aviators donned them to keep their ears warm in open cockpits. Nothing was as dashing as Charles Lindbergh in his leather aviator cap. Soon the Russian all-fur ushanka hat came on the scene and consumers everywhere were scrambling to get this fully fur trapper hat into their wardrobes. Warm and waterproof, no one cared that they were a little, well, bushy.
