Mensagem: 

Ah.... Cockney slang.

 

I may have the name wrong, but I believe we have a hat (not terribly popular) in the USA called a "porky".  It's often made of cotton and has a very narrow brim.  Sometimes they are made from waterproof cloth to be used with raincoats.

 

A "porker" is an ugly or obese girl.
