Ini istilah fashion, yaitu sejenis topi gaya Skotlandia yang awalnya diperuntukkan kaum pria.

Nama topi ini berasal dari puisi berjudul sama karya Robert Burns pada tahun 1790. Puisinya panjang dan berbahasa sangat rumit, saya salin sedikit saja dari sana.

“Of Brownyis and of Bogillis full is this Buke.”
Gawin Douglas.

When chapman billies leave the street,
And drouthy neibors, neibors, meet;
As market days are wearing late,
And folk begin to tak the gate,
While we sit bousing at the nappy,
An’ getting fou and unco happy,
We think na on the lang Scots miles,
The mosses, waters, slaps and stiles,
That lie between us and our hame,
Where sits our sulky, sullen dame,
Gathering her brows like gathering storm,
Nursing her wrath to keep it warm.
