A Party Angling and the Angler’s Repast, engravings after George Morland, 1789 via Donald Heald.
Y’all, those are some pretty amazing hats all around. If I didn’t have white guilt because of the presence of that poor slave, I would desperately want to recreate this whole scene.
More about Angling from Donald Heald:
“A pair of the most famous fishing prints after George Morland, the master of English genre painting.
During the eighteenth century punt fishing became a very fashionable sport, gentlemen and ladies gathered in droves to enjoy this popular outdoor pursuit. Morland was so struck with the charm of this pastime that he quickly rendered it on to canvas, thus creating two of his most cherished paintings. The two fashionable ladies pictured in the paintings are in fact Morland and Ward’s wives, while the gentlemen are John Raphael Smith and the engraver himself.”

What splendid looking fellows!
Epic hats! This is what baseball is missing today!
Revolutionary War Cocked Hat, 1776-1780. Via the New York Historical Society.
“According to the accession records, this hat was worn by John Shethar of Connecticut, an ancestor of the donor. Shethar was made a lieutenant in the 2nd Continental Dragoons December 31, 1776, and promoted to captain October 11, 1777. He resigned from military service March 8, 1780.”
You know, for the ubiquity of the black cocked hat in our history, there really aren’t that many that still exist today. The gorgeous silk cockade is icing on the cake!
Recruitment poster for His Majesty’s Coldstream Guards, 1914. I’m guessing the incentives to join here are the epic shakos and the hot comrades with postures as rigid as their never mind.
Yo, this is pretty much the dude version of the awesome bird hats I posted yesterday!
