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.
The Derby is a popular style hat that bridges the gap between casual and formal; a gentleman can feel dressed for the occasion without being gauchely overdone.
