This is a replica of the hat that Napoleon wore throughout his military and political career and which became a world-wide symbol of his persona, just as the pose with his hand in the waistcoat. Whether you're in China, Japan, South America or elsewhere, the first thing that comes to mind when you see this hat is "Napoleon!".
The bicorne was originally the headgear of revolutionary soldiers before being gradually replaced by more functional or fashionable headgear like the shako.
The bicorne we are presenting was originally intended to be an exact replica of the Emperor's hat, but eventually underwent a small facelift with a leather coating that does not soak at the first drops of water.
This handmade leather hat is very strong and durable and will last by your boots for many years.
