Sombrero cordobés

Sombreros cordobeses.

The sombrero cordobés is a traditional hat made in the city of Córdoba, Spain and traditionally worn in a large part of Andalusia.[1] In the Spanish-speaking world outside of Andalusia, the term can simply mean "wide-brimmed hat".

There are no standard sizes for the sombrero cordobés; the height of the crown can vary from 10 centimetres (3.9 in) to 12 centimetres (4.7 in) and the width of the brim can vary from 8 centimetres (3.1 in) to 12 centimetres (4.7 in). The most traditional color is black, though other common colors are red, pearl gray, sea green and navy blue.

The origin of the style is unclear. Drawings as early as the 17th century show day laborers wearing this sort of hat. The style became more widespread in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Among the people who have worn the sombrero cordobés are Real Betis always wore it when celebrating after scoring during his time there. The fictional characters Zorro and Black Hat (from Priest (2011)) are often depicted wearing this style of hat.
