Any working girl can feel like the Queen of New Orleans in this smart little number lovingly crafted from 100% Louisiana pork.

Already a staple of British fashion, the PorkPile was first introduced to American audiences at last year’s Mardis Gras, where it became a fast favorite.

The Basebull Cap

With a crown of ground buffalo and a bill of finest flank steak, this hat was popularized by right-fielder Oscar “Bappy” Gillespie of the old Negro Leagues’ Pawtucket Ebony Weasels.

Gillespie would wear his “bully” for nine innings in the hot summer sun, then serve it to fans after the game.


This cold-weather cap boasts a helmet of Canadian bacon and a chinstrap of breakfast links.

Originally issued exclusively to the Royal Mounted Police, there is now growing support in favor of having this practical and popular model replace the Chapeau Briand as the nation’s Official National Hat.


Made of finest Aussie marbleized beefsteak, this hip take on the traditional swag hat was designed by Australian Minister for the Environment, Heritage and the Arts, Peter Garrett.

His band Midnight Oil distributed thousands of these to Aboriginal tribes during their 1987 “Beds Are Burning” Tour.


Our “Beefy Beanie” is made of lean kosher brisket.

Now in its early stages of development is the Beret Pre Hagoffen, as well as the Hamulke, a skullcap of canned ham to be used by Interfaith families.

The 9th Annual Hats of Meat Fashion Expo

We are pleased to return to Burbank’s Starlite Motor Lodge for this annual extravaganza, featuring the world’s best and brightest designers showcasing the latest in Meat Hat fashions.

The weekend-long event features a fashion show, awards ceremony and silent auction. This year’s special guests include Mickey Rooney and Julian Lennon.

It’s hat time of year again! The Children’s Symphony Orchestra of Framingham, Massachusetts provides the entertainment and provides the haberdashery and refreshments for this traditional holiday gala on the Boston Commons.

Kids can make their own elf caps with chicken-finger flaps and meatball pom-poms, and dads can craft beards of pork! Arrive early; parking can be a challenge.

Free brisket yarmulkes for the whole mishpacha (“family”)! Join us in Hollywood’s historic Fairfax District for 8 nights of fun all rolled into one!

We’ll serve lean corned beef and pastrami for our famous shtreimel (“enormous rabbi hat”) building contest.

Potato latkes make the perfect side dish for this heaping helping of family fun!

And try a new chalumka, an oval-shaped, chocolate cookie inspired by Moshe Dayan’s eye patch.

Join us at Pittsburgh’s Point State Park as we board The Gateway Clipper for a trip back to a simpler time when beer was green and so was the Ohio River!

St. Patrick himself would be envious of the Spam-o’-shanters we’ll wear and the good times we’ll have. Evgeni Malkin of the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins will perform his popular “meat hat-trick,” and Pittsburgh comedy legend Billy Elmer hosts!
