Where did this amazing big, brown, campy hat originate? Rumor has it that the rapper purchased the handmade felt 'Mountain Hat' from Vivienne Westwood's Worlds End Boutique in the UK a few years ago. The hat is reportedly available in various colors and goes for $157.
Many speculated inspiration behind this hat came from a myriad of cultural symbols, including Smokey the Bear, Yosemite Sam and the Arby's logo, but it turns out there's actually a musical reference.
According to The Cut, the oversized hat was an homage to style in the 1982 hip-hop video "Buffalo Girls." The popular song has a long history in American culture, originating in 1844 as "Buffalo Gals," performed by John "Cool White" Hodges.
After the show, Pharrell told The Hollywood Reporter, "It's a Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat from when she was with Malcolm McLaren... It's not vintage -- I would've been really stylin' if I had one from the '80s."
