FROM THE CLOTHING & TEXTILES DIVISION
To see hats that represent a wide variety of themes please click on the themes at the bottom.
“Once an essential part of every man and woman’s outfit, hats have gone out of fashion now except for very special occasions like weddings. It is fun to be reminded of all the symbolism they conveyed and what hats could say about the wearer. These examples are just a small portion of the wonderful collection of hats for men and women in the Museum of Texas Tech University collection.”
