Jughead's Hat

What do they call that weird cap with the ragged spikes and various decorations attached? You've seen it in old movies, TV shows, and advertisements. It's been called by many names: a fedora beanie, jagged beanies, Whoopee cap, palookaville caps, devils caps, clubhouse hats, and Kingpins. I'm Learning to Share takes a look at how the style developed in the early part of the 20th century. Link -via Metafilter

I think originally they were felt hats modified by auto mechanic's to keep their hair out of their face when they were working,I've seen base ball caps worn by mechanics with the brim cut off, so that when you walk under the lift to change the oil etc,you dont catch the brim and knock your hat off all the time

Thalia wears one of these in the first few episodes of "Maria la del Barrio", a telenovella.
