Hat Day is January 15th in recognition of the first top hat. On January 15, 1797, James Heatherington from England left his shop wearing a top hat. The story goes that a crowd assembled, turning into a shoving match, resulting in a fine for Heatherington. A top hat is a hat with a tall crown usually covered with silk or with beaver fur.

Hat Day is set aside to wear and enjoy a hat of your choice and style. Isn't it great that hats come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles? There's one to fit every size head and personality. Often, hats are used to make a statement, or to promote a cause or a product.

Oh yeah... hats have logical uses, too. Some hats (Aka helmets), offer safety protection. Some hats keep your head warm....how boring.

Hat Day is not intended to just keep you warm. Its a chance to make a statement and to display you favorite headgear. We suggest you wear a number of different hats over the course of the day.

Did you know? More body heat is lost from your head than other parts of the body. So, wearing a hat goes a long way towards staying warm on a cold winter's day (or night).

Origin of Hat Day:

Its no doubt that Hat Day was created by a hat loving individual or group.
