Men always used to wear hats, but in 1908 when Orville and Wilbur Wright made their first sustained flight in 1903 they wore beanies. A few years later, in 1908, Wilbur was wearing a beanie that he could pull down so that it did not fly off during the flight. Wilbur was a great celebrity in Europe during that time and his new fashion style became popular with young men and boys across the continent. It was called the "Wilbur" style. One such beanie style was worn after the First World War by Amelia Earhart. She had it made in soft white leather to match her white pilot jacket.

The pilot beanie can be tucked under the chin so the ear flaps keep both ears, neck and cheeks warm. They are often lined with fleece fur or artificial fur. We have several pilot beanie models here in our store.

Today, pilot beanies are once again in fashion and you often see them when you're out for a walk. You can understand why, as they are warm, comfortable and great looking. Find a pilot beanie for yourself here at Hatstore!
