The “Reveille” is the wake up call the bugle boy plays at the break of dawn and this unique hat design took inspiration from the 1940’s women’s air force caps. Think, “Andrew Sisters and the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy!” Then add just the right amount of magic with lovely delicate scalloping, multimedia combinations of leather, silk velvet or Nuno. Complete with detailed stitch work, intricate filigree and art engraved detail. This Reveille even comes with a re-shapeable wire brim for curls both front and back, making it a breeze to pack in your suitcase for travel. Lastly add unique pin~button~feather embellishments to create that unmistakeable Elven poise.
