Directly influenced by the Bukakke craze that swept Japanese secondary schools in the late 90s, a Hackney Trilby is the act of several men blasting off in to a trilby (or any brimmed hat) and placing it on to the head of a subject (often male).

So called because the practise originated in Hackney amongst the homosexual gangster hairdressing scene (hence why the only people who wear trilbys in Hackney are gay hairdressers).
Dave - Did you borrow my hat last night?

Mike - Sorry mate, we were down the Angel gagging for a Hackney Trilby and it was the only one around... do you want it back?
