Deluxe Felt Derby - Black

Good looking hat !

Item: 007629



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 black wool felt, lined, with a leather sweatband, and just perfect for the period look.

Features a 2 inch brim and the crown is approximately 4 inches tall. Imported. Available in sizes M - 2X. This style available in several colors.

Looks and fits great!
I bought this derby hat as part of my 1880's costume. This is one of the few hats that actually fit me and it looks great!

Well-made hat, perfect size.
He was delighted. Got this as a gift for my nephew. He loved the hat and it's very flattering on him. Just right!

Doesn't fit in comparison
to most hat styles I've worn. I ordered a large and it's too small.This is not perhaps the company's fault, but it is a problem. I will be sending it back for either a refund or exchange. However, I do love the products available on the website; but am realizing that for my noggin it is probably wiser to get my hats custom-made.

Very Nice
The derby is very nice and is well made, I really do like it. The problem for me was I thought I could wear the M size but I had to insert size-reducing foam all the way around behind the sweatband to make it fit a 6 7/8 size head.

Good quality hat for the money
I have a lot of hats, mostly Stetson cowboy hats. But I couldn't see paying $248 (typical) for a Stetson Bowler/Derby. So I looked for a medium quality Bowler. I tried a few others that ranged from theater quality (don't be seen up close in it) to reasonable quality hats. One was decent but was mailed in a shipping bag and was crushed. Go figure huh? Send a hat in a bag for the less than careful shipping companies to modify for your customer on the way to the customer. With the background out of the way these folks sent me one of these hats in a box. A shipping box not a hat box, but for this money so what. It came in good condition and very quickly. The fit and finish of this hat was at least comparable to a $150 quality hat and for for much less. I like the hat. It fits right and looks great. I would buy it again without a doubt.

Great fit
I was concerned about the fit but is great. Very good material. Will be ordering a brown one soon. Got a lot of historical reenactors who ask where I got it. Gave them your web site.

Deluxe Felt Derby - Black
This is much better quality felt than the former "deluxe" model derby (although, to it's credit, after several years of daily use, I have consigned the earlier model to "motorcycle duty" due to wear, yet it is still holding up well even to 65mph!) The new Scala model has become my daily "town" wear hat. I have 4 "Deluxe" derbies, 2 Scala, 2 Capas, in 3 different colors, I wear them all, none feel, or look "costume-ey" As these wear, I will come back for more.
