Hats have allows been important in civilisations, esp. in Islamic civilisations. So i would like to know more about this area, as well as any interesting information.

If there have been any that i have missed out please add an image.

My personal favourate is the Fes and the Shemagh!!!

<Takke/Topi skull cap

<Shemagh

<Sindh style

<Kashmiri

<Central Asian

<Also Cetral Asian

<Turkman

<Berber

<Fez

 

Also, just out of wondering. I recently heard that the Shemagh is red for those Arab nations that are republics (Jumhariya) and black for those from monarchy (Memlakatiya). (hope i got the Arabic translation correct) Is this true?

I like the shemagh aswell.

As for the color, i don't think it matters, here in the UAE which is a monarchy, alot of people wear the red shemagh.

This "Afghani" Hat  is one of my favorite hats.  This type of hat is guaranteed to keep your head warm:

 

Along side that, there is also these other designs found in Afghanistan:

Karakoli  Hat as shown on Karzai

the red shemagh is popular in jordan. as for the black ones, there r two i think, one with larger "dots/shapes" (or watever) than the other. The larger ones is common among palestinians, like the one arafat used to wear

so that concept doesnt apply i guess.
Jordan=monarchy
palistinians=not monarchy.
so i guess its quite the opposite

The Fez replaced the turban, as the national headgear in 1826 by the Ottoman sultan Mahmud 2. This move was due to the sultans westernisation reforms. However i think although iam not sure that the Turks initially got their Fez from Tunisia. Since then the Fez has been linked hand-in-hand in with the Turks. Although Mustafa Kemal banned the Fez in his so called hat revolution in 30/08/1925. I believe at present the fez is still used in Syria and many of the Muslim ex-Ottoman lands (maninly North Africa). Can be found in Turkey and North Cyprus but merely as a souvenier.

Hat revolution , who ever heard of a hat revolution. its kind of embarrising. but it was our "father" who made the changes so who are we to question it.

As for the Afghan Hat (known as the Pacol), I want to add there is the 'correct' way of wearing it, and the the incorrect way.

Correct:

Correct me if I'm wrong, I thought hats are supposed to be worn on your head.  This is more like a scarf.

To me the shemagh is unbeatable... so classy. All arabs should be proud to have one. I do.

I never wear mine like this because my employers would fire me .

Lori or Bakhtiari hats have a long history, lori hats look like Sassanids one, maybe they came from there. But they are not islamic.

I like that Afghan hats. They look so nice.

I've seen many years ago a picture of an american soldire with an afghani hat, wearing rayban and cheawing chew gumes

Is that a picture of Rayhan, the Islamic nasheed group?

I like those hats, they look very similar to the fez. Although these hats would be more acceptable in modern society, then the fez.

Are they also wearing traditional Malay costume, mashaallah looks very stylish
