Re: Memling Hat
- Thank you for your help. The gown and truncated henin are for
my teenage daughter who is unmarried and has waist-length hair so
this should work out perfectly. If it turns out as we hope, I will
post a picture. Once again, thank you for the wonderful information.

- I seem to have a real bee in my wimple about the Memling hats.
Would someone be so kind as post the titles of some quality research
books that covers these types of hats? I have 20,000 Years of
Fashion, by Francois Boucher, but it offers little information other
than it holds that the term "henin" was meant to be used as an insult
when used in reference to the pointy hats.
