Is General George Washington an idol? Has your little guy already read the biographies? Does your boy often dream of marching with minutemen in funny uniforms? Well, we may just have something for him! It's not exactly one of those funny uniforms, but it's an iconic, integral piece! While the Tricorn Hat has become synonymous with revolutionary war era style, few know that it had an immensely practical purpose. In rainy weather, it both protected the wearer's face and funneled water out of the back (over the wearer's shoulders). While rain gear has evolved since then, you can still procure this signature style for your child's historical themed costume! George Washington would definitely be proud. Who knows, it may inspire your little dude to achieve greatness akin to our first president!
