CHOOSE YOUR SIZE 


Americans call it a derby, after the Earl of Derby who helped popularize it. But, Englishmen know it as a bowler as it was first introduced in the early-1850's in England and produced by the Bowler Brothers Company. It crossed the pond to America in the 1860's and remained popular well past the turn of the century.

Our best quality derby is made of brown wool felt, lined, and just perfect for the period look.

USA-made, with removable decorative feather. Features a 2 inch brim, and the crown is approximately 4.5 inches tall. Brim to brim measures approximately 9 inches in front, and 11 inches from the side view. Available in sizes M - XL. Offered in several colors.

Oversized: This item is considered oversized for shipping purposes, and may incur a surcharge if expedited or shipped internationally.

The Real Deal
Nice hat! Plan to wear with my frock coat suit in NOLA at the Jazz fest. Third order from these folks and not a bad product yet. I paid 27% exchange coming to Canada... but I still think it's a great hat at a reasonable price.

Very dapper.
This hat is certainly attractive and elegant, and the fit is accurate to my measured size. I have a lot of brown-ish clothes, so it is really nice to have a derby (or bowler here in Canada) in a colour other than black! I took off one star in my rating because the interior sweatband is some kind of artificial leather that gets rather uncomfortable if worn for long periods... a bit sticky. I guess it does have the virtue of being easy to clean. But I would happily buy this hat again. Thanks Historical Emporium!

Terrific product
I was in no way convinced that I was making the right choice, but I purchased the Derby out of necessity, with very little time left before a themed family reunion event. As luck (or search engine intelligence) would have it, the Historical Emporium was within 15 miles of where I live. The company made every effort to accommodate my need for speed and see that I could pick up the hat at their warehouse location--greatly appreciated. Almost from the moment I donned the Derby the compliments started pouring in from all kinds of people, age 9 to 99. "Awesome hat!" "Great Derby!" "Cool! Where'd you get that?" "Check it out Dad!" I kid you not. I wasn't looking for compliments--they were looking for me... I'm honestly not much for that kind of attention, but I found the hat put me in suitable character to enjoy the transformation. And compared to the baseball caps I typically wear, a transformation is exactly what it felt like. Not only did I (and family) have a fantastic evening all around, the Derby felt like its own member of the party. More than just a closet ornament for the occasional party, this is headwear that promises to be a staple of my new style. Certainly others before me have fallen in love with the quality and style of a bygone era, but I plan for the foreseeable future to launch a campaign to "Bring back the Bowler" and during more than one occasion to lean against a light post as I read a Penny Dreadful--Derby shifted over my brow. Love it!...

Deluxe Felt Derby -brown
Good hat, size is spot on. I'm a 7 3/8 and it's always a bit of a crap-shoot whether or not the generic s, m, l, xl sizing will fit, but this one's right on the money. I'm a daily hat wearer also, and have received numerous compliments on the hat, to the point that I'm surprised if someone doesn't mention it when I'm out and about. I'd definitely purchase it again and will shop here again the next time I'm in the mood for vintage style. Thanks!

Derby hat
I ordered this hat for my husbands birthday. He LOVES it. It was delivered about two days before I even thought about watching for it. No complaints at all about the quality of the hat, or the service I received. The only thing, and it is a little thing is that the hat did not quite fit. My husband has a huge melon, and can wear most XL sized hats, but anything larger is too big. This XL hat was a little tight, but not enough to worry about. Some things you just have to try on.
