] In the move "Persuasion " Captiain Wentworth wears the typical naval hat. Does anyone know what this hat is called,
The short answer is that it is called a bicorne(two-horned), and you wear it "fore and aft" like Fredrick Wentworth or "athwartships" like Nelson. And just for the record, it's not the same as Mr Darcy's Assembly room hat.
