What is a Close Hat?

A close hat is a 1950s term for a shallow-crowned brimless hat that fits close to the head, usually covering only the top portion of the crown. They were originally are worn square (not tilted) on the top of the crown, exposing the forehead. They come in many shapes, and often have veils. Today they look equally great tilted on the head.  From Hatatorium:  An Essential Guide for Hat Collectors, 2nd Edition.
