The Bowler is the classic urban style hard felt hat with a round crown and a small, shaped, curved brim. It was originally created by the Bowler Brothers in London during the mid 1850's in response to a request for a more practical alternative to the top hat; it is also known as a Derby, as the style was also made popular by the Earl of Derby in 19th century England. Popular since Victorian Era for people of all backgrounds and lifestyles -- the Bowler is the hat style that dominated the West -- despite the popularity of the Cowboy hat.
It comes standard with a pencil rolled bound edge in your choice of colors.
- Brim: 2 or 2½"
