When I saw the word in that context, I was immediately reminded of a hat that used to be known as a "Pork Pie", because of its resemblance. I'm sure that there is a connection, just can't find it.
I'll keep looking!

I can visualise a hat looking like a pork pie, but a hat looking like a gimlet doesn't sound right. I've always thought of a gimlet as looking something like a giant needle, but I must admit I've never actually seen one as far as I know, not being a cobbler.
