A Brief History Of The "Elmer Fudd" Hat
At the turn of the 20th century, American ingenuity and the need for cold weather comfort evolved into the now famous "dog eared" baseball cap made famous by lumberjacks and outdoor adventurers of the Great Northwest. In legend and lore this Winter hat has graced the heads of legends like giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and that wiley waskily wabbit hunting brute Elmer Fudd who wore it to good use while stalking his arch enemy Bugs Bunny in many Warner Brothers cartoons during the 40's, 50's and early 60's. This classic ear-flap hunting and logging hat married to the classic red and black
Buffalo plaid is just about as American as apple pie and iconic to the Manly Man as an axe or a pick-up truck. Buffalo plaid (red and black being the most popular) was first pioneered around 1850, and is attributed either to Hudson’s Bay Company or the Woolrich Woolen Mills (the history is a bit fuzzy about this) and is said to have been named after the herd of buffalo owned by the plaid's designer. The pattern was popular during the Westward expansion, and thereafter embraced by the logging industry in the Great Lakes region. The Buffalo Plaid pattern was manufactured into hats, hunting coats, flannel shirts and pants. When worn together as they often were at the time, the look was called the Pennsylvania Tuxedo. And who'd have believed that the "Fudd" hat in classic Black and Red Buffalo Plaid with it's "dog ears" down would make a fashion statement on the hit TV comedy GLEE!
