"Many entries include references for further reading and research. Summing Up: Recommended." - Choice

"Entries are easy-to-read yet complete and provide a nice springboard for further research. Overall, this is a nice addition to any library with patrons interested in fashion or the history of clothing." - Booklist

"With the publication of this title, researchers in fashion and costume history now have a well-researched reference work in which to find the history, significance, and meaning behind hats and headwear worn throughout the world." - ARBA
