Where did the flat caps originate?
The flat cap originated in North England in the 14th century. By the 16th century in Ireland a law was passed that any male over 6 years old must wear a woollen cap on Sundays. This was to boost the wool trade. This law was abolished many years later and as men got accustomed to wearing these Irish hats they became staple pieces for any working class man.
