That's what i meant to imply - thanks for clarifying! :D

The big difference here might be that the jingle dress is a publicly shared gift, and was never a mark of rank or status on a society.

There are actually many, mant different hats similar to a mop top worn in that style - most notably, and perhaps even emblamic of our culture, would be made of partridge tails.

The true classics never really do go ot of style ;)
