Ottoman for the Man – Headwear

For those who know me, they know I’m a big fan of hats in the SCA.  I don’t have a lot of my own (yet), but I really like them.  With that in mind, my sweetie needs proper Ottoman headwear.

Mehmet II
Gentile Bellini, c. 1480


Suleiman the Magnificent, 1557 (engraving) by Lorck, Melchior (c.1526-88)

An Ottoman Official, c. 1650.

They all seem to start with a conical hat as a base, and then have a turban wrapped around that.  As you can see, these things can get pretty big.
