* The '''yarmulke''' (also called a '''kippah''') ''screams'' "I'm Jewish!" at the top of its lungs. But it's only worn by men, and hardly ever worn outside of a synagogue by non-Orthodox Jews. Only use if you need to make someone visibly Jewish without resorting to [[UnfortunateImplications racial stereotypes]].

* '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucket_hat Bucket hat]]''': A must for any fishing trip. Bonus points if there are fishing lures stuck into the crown for easy access. Used constantly instead of just for fishing, this style of hat can become an [[NiceHat iconic part of the character]]. For example, [[GilligansIsland Gilligan]] or [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kisuke Urahara]]. Or HunterSThompson (when he's not [[BaldOfAwesome sporting his natural crown]]). [[IThoughtItMeant But not]] {{Buckethead}}.

* '''Whoopee cap''': A felt cap with a short brim turned up all around, cut into a jagged shape reminiscent of a crown. It's usually accessorized with pins and buttons with slogans on them. Popular among kids during the 1930s and 1940s, when they would cut up their fathers' old (and, one hopes, officially thrown-out) fedoras to make them. Most appearances in fiction died out after the 1950s, but it can be seen on characters like [[ArchieComics Jughead]] and [[TheAndyGriffithShow Goober Pyle]]. The stereotypes for wearers (if they're not kids in contemporary works) are "teenage {{delinquent}}" or "ManChild", depending on age.

** In VictorianLondon through Gangsterland, the helmet-like characteristics of the bowler (designed for riders, as the previously popular top hats, unlike the bowler, were easily knocked off by branches, could not survive being trod on by a horse, and offered no protection for a falling rider), made it incredibly popular among those [[SatisfiedStreetRat who expect blows to the head]]. They can usually be identified by their low quality suits, slightly oversized hats, and face that demonstrates that the bowler only protected the top of the head (one very violent gang was called the "plug uglies"). It was also a favourite with ScotlandYard CID inspectors for the same reasons.

Hats have [[HollywoodDressCode connotations]]. Even [[NiceHat nice ones]]. Check out this page if you're looking to give your character a little extra ''something'' to make them stick out in the mind of your audience.

* A [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Custodian_helmet custodian helmet]] screams BritishCoppers, but be careful only men, and only uniformed police ''outside of Scotland'' wear it (female bobbies wear a bowler with checker band). Originally, it was made of cork, covered with navy felt, but after 1980, the inner construction was changed to a lightweight hard wearing plastic material (like a hard hat), and had some padding and an extra ''riot chin strip'' added (the original cork did little to protect against thrown missiles, although it certainly protected from being hit over the head). It usually features a helmet plate that shows the respective police service/constabulary's coat of arms at its front (which is usually the Brunswick Star).

* '''Turban''': Another stock foreign hat, it's another 'somewhere from the East' cap, though in this case, it's more specific: either the Middle East or India[[note: In real life it is more widespread, ranging from parts of Africa to northwestern China.]]. Wearers in fiction often occupy an important but ultimately stereotypical/bit role; if your average superspy is in India looking for his contact, he'll be the guy wearing the turban. Another trope so dead it's only parodied outside of very specific regional variations used to denote setting.
