Item: 004091



Our Tall Derby in Black is must-have headwear that tops off a gentlemanly outfit with timeless style. Perhaps the most popular hat attributed to the 19th century, the bowler-style derby was sported by the wealthy and working class alike.

Made from 100% wool felt in black, our handsome derby is crafted with every attention to the era including a close-fitting shape, rounded 4 to 5 in. crown, short curled 2 in. brim with a bound edge. Grosgrain ribbon and lined inside with a leather sweat band for comfort.

Imported. Sizes M - 2X.

I LOVE it!
I just wanted a different old west look. I'm getting a ton of compliments. It feels good on my head. I look awesome. I have lost a lot of weight due to surgery so I put a couple strips of felt in the sweat band to make it a little tighter on my head.

Great fit!
It's one of the best fitting hats I have! Not one I'd wear out in the heat of the sun all day, since it gives no protection from that. A fine old west dress hat, nonetheless........

All the attention to detail, the arm bands, the hat, the tie, and the suspenders, created a perfect historical outfit.

Wonderful Classic
As with most hats from HE, this one does not disappoint. The hat is well made, elegant and surprisingly sturdy. This hat is slightly taller than a standard derby making it look a bit more formal. If you collect as I do, this one is a must. The compliments strart almost immediately. Thank you once again to Historical Emporium.

Very nice hat
Considering the price, I wasn't expecting such a high quality hat. Very nice. Sizing is a little big, but nothing that can't be solved with some newspaper in the sweatband. Very satisfied.

Tall Black Derby
Once, again Historical Emporium comes to my rescue for costume items I need for characters in film productions. This company had the item I needed and the size. This is most likely a common hat ordered by many so I was thrilled when the item was in stock and had the correct size in stock. Very please with the hat and its fit.
