The smoking cap arose around the 1800’s because apart from keeping the head warm in draftee rooms, where it was affectionately known as the lounge cap, it also kept the smell of cigar smoke away from a gentleman’s hair. The hat later became popular amongst scholars and became "the thinking man’s cap".
It is one accessory that has stood the test of time for its versatility, as it compliments so many styles including formal, steampunk and gothic, to the more flamboyant. The characterful indie aspect of this piece of clothing is guaranteed to get the magical wizard and magician within noticed.
