The traditional Scottish cap, bonnet or Tam O'Shanter made especially for us in the University of Glasgow tartan. An essential item for the wardrobe of fighting Scots, teuchters (Highlanders) or Hollywood portrayals of Scottish life! It can be worn by men or women.

The name Tam O'Shanter comes from the eponymous hero of the Robert Burns poem but the hat shape has been around since the 15th century (back when the University was founded) Known in military circles as the Tam or TOS, it was first worn by Scottish soldiers in 1915 and is still part of uniform for regiments in Scotland and Canada today.
