A handsome and older Glengarry, possibly from WW1 or WW2. This Canadian Glengarry has a few holes in the dice fabric, which give it some vintage character. They are small ( see close up photo), and could be mended, but I think they make the hat look its age.. Otherwise in great shape. Size: 7 and a quarter.

History of the Glengarry:

The glengarry bonnet is a traditional Scots cap made of thick-milled woollen material, decorated with a toorie on top, frequently a rosette cockade on the left side, and with ribbons hanging down behind. It is normally worn as part of Scottish military or civilian Highland dress, either formal or informal, as an alternative to the tam o' shanter. Other Commonwealth military forces that have Scottish and Highland regiments also make use of the glengarry.

The glengarry is also commonly worn by civilians, notably civilian pipe bands, but can be considered an appropriate hat worn by any man with Highland casual dress or day wear. In this context, it most often has a red toorie. In pipe bands, women often also wear the glengarry.

The correct method of wearing the glengarry has changed since the end of the Second World War. Prior to 1945, glengarries were generally worn steeply angled, with the right side of the cap worn low, often touching the ear, and the side with the capbadge higher on the head. The trend since the end of the war has been to wear the glengarry level on the head.
