Every week word-lovers post new words they’ve discovered while reading. It’s called Wondrous Words Wednesday and was created by Kathy at Bermuda Onion’s Weblog.
I saw this word while reading the blurb for The Dress Thief by Natalie Meg Evans:
trilby: A tilted trilby and shoes of black glacé leather suggested a young lady of means, as did silk stockings accentuating slim calves and ankles.
A trillby is a soft felt hat with a narrow brim and indented crown. I know this hat! It wasn’t called a trilby back in the 40s, but I remember my dad wearing one of these. Here’s Ins[ectpr Clouseau/Peter Sellers wearing one.
