Tipping point! Our Tall Derby in Chocolate Brown pushes your 19th century style to the top. The hat of choice for nearly every Victorian man, banker to barkeep. And, across the pond, the bowler-style derby was considered to be the hat that won the West.

Imported. Sizes M - XL.

Beautiful, high quality hat!
This hat is of exceptional quality. My husband says it is the most perfectly fitting and comfortable hat he owns. He is also pleased that the feather is removable; it is nice to change the way it is accessorized depending on his attire.

Tall Derby Brown
Just what I needed for a character for a film. A brown derby is not the easiest to find, but Historical Emporium is my go to store for some hard to find items for costuming. And, had the size I needed which is not always true of this company for commion popular sizes. That is one thing I would like to see corrected by this company. Please restock or have more on hand. Thinking a brown derby may not be a hat that is ordered compared to a the color black. So, having is was a good thing and then in size I needed for character was a real plus. Very happy with the hat, color, size and quality.

Dance Hat a Smash Hit
I bought the derby for my son's first solo dance routine. He's 10, the medium fit perfectly. He's doing well, High Gold in his Charlie Chaplin inspired solo dance routine. Also added the Bamboo Van Dyke Cane. Thank you very much, one happy dancer and one very impressed Dance Teacher. Curt in Saskatchewan, Canada.

I've been on an H.H. Homes phase these past few weeks after reading Devil in the White City and I've always wanted a Derby. The hat willalso go well with my Pinkerton Detective costume this Halloween. The hat is well constructed and looks wonderful. A great value!

High-Quality Hat
Nice. Definitely a real hat, not a cheap costume prop. The only issue was that it's just a touch small for my husband's size 7 3/4 head. Probably best for people no bigger than a size 7 1/2.

Tall Derby
It's unbelievable what a fine quality hat this is for the money! It is everything I had hoped for. I get looks everytime I wear it. Envious from the men and flirtatious from the women! Ha! It's amazing how good wearing a nice hat makes you feel. Thank you again for another quality purchase.

Great Look
I love my brown tall derby and have added it to my black derby? The look, quality, and the fit was outstanding enough that I added your straw derby for summer. I have had a great experience purchasing from the Historical Emporium. Thank you. I will be ordering more from your company. I'll be needing it when all the would be presidents visit our first in the primary, "Live Free or Die" state of New Hampshire. Derby up.... Jon

Buffalo Hunter Bowler
Remember the buffalo hunter Big Swede in Lonesome Dove? That's the look I wanted with this swashbuckling tall bowler and my duster. Hat was quality material and looks great after I "seasoned" it by hanging in dusty barn for 2 weeks. Tossed out the standard feather and added my own longer feathers for one of a kind accent. The ladies in the Walmart pharmacy can't get enough of me now!! 5 Woohoo's for that kind of attention. ;))

This is a beautiful hat. It's a tall derby. If you're not in the mood for a Top Hat and not quite in the mood for a derby, this is the best of both worlds. And you can't see it from the picture but there's a feather on the side. A great hat that garnered compliments. Very happy.
