I've been trying to locate some decent 16th or 17th century wide brimmed felt hats for quite a while now, but almost all I can find are crappy costume pieces at 10 dollars or so. The only site selling what I think of as decent was this:
Sweden based "Handelsgillet" has a selection of wool felt hats:
http://handelsgillet.se/shop/index.php/cPath/63_64/language/en"There is nothing more hazardous than to venture a battle. One can lose it
by a thousand unforseen circumstances, even when one has thorougly taken all
precautions that the most perfect military skill allows for."
-Fieldmarshal Lennart Torstensson.
The problem with that one seems to be that you'll have to find and fit all the extras for the hat separately (the belt around it etc.). Also, if I understand the site correctly they only carry sizes between 58 - 62, which would be ok for me (I'm a 62), but my wife would have to find another source (she's 54/55)... :/
