The Heisenberg Pork Pie Custom Hand Made Beaver Fur Felt Fedora Movie Hat
Naturally enough this style of hat got its name from its resemblance to a pork pie. These small brimed hats were first seen in the mid 1800s and were a popular British town style hat. In America they were worn by many soldiers during the American Civil War, and sailors still refer to their white caps as Pork Pies.
