An interesting rundown Maureen, thank you for posting it.  I suppose he used the term millinery in favour of alliteration, but no doubt generations of Luton and London hatters we’re turning in their graves at such a sacrilege.

Headgear would sound more appropriate.

Added:

well done, Taff for resisting any Tommy Cooper impressions.

headgear or Head dress?

 

Good presentation by Taff and just at the right level for those with some knowledge and those without.

I hope the dealer community see Taff's video it might stop the constant reference to 'Trench Caps' in their listings.

Frogsmile, I can't speak for the London hatters but I can assure you those old Luton ones won't be spinning in their graves, they'll be too busy holding on to all that money they took with them. As my parents, who migrated from Sunderland to the Luton area in the 1930s, used to say, "You can always tell a Lutonian because they are that tight that when they walk their arses squeak". I understand what they meant because I married one and believe me that woman knows how to grip a wad!!!.  Pete.
