Tall Derby
This was my first purchase from Historical Emporium. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical and expected the hat to be more like a mediocre costume quality item based on the price. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and workmanship on the hat. It has a full liner and sweatband inside and the construction and materials are very solid; the fit was perfect too. I am a historical music re-enactor and this item is perfect for one of my impressions. I'll be a return customer for sure.

I needed a hat that I look good in AND has no hint of "cowboy". This hat has a curved brim to distinguish it from a British Banker bowler which has a straight brim.

OF ALL the places I checked, this site had the closest to the derby I was looking for, albeit I would have preferred a LIGHTER shade of gray, which proved to be impossible to find! ~ Maybe if enough people request a lighter shade, the company just might consider producing them as an additional color option.

Nice hat, good color, well made. Well worth the price, quick shipping and excellent customer service. I would have given it 5 stars, but I wear a 7 5/8 fitted and the XL is a little too tight, although not enough for me to go through the hassle of making a return.

Durable Topper
This purchase was made to replace my brown derby, which I have worn for over eight years. I ordered this hat gray in color to supplement both my winter and spring/autumn coats. Based on the sizing options, I knew that the hat would be slightly larger than needed. This was a quick "fix", however, with some double-sided tape inside the inner flap (and thus out of view) to provide the correct dimension. As stated by others, the hat is stiffer than other derbys, which I believe will make it more durable. I am pleased very much with this topper!

Very nice felt derby
I really like my derby. I would like to wear a dress up hat for certain occasions. I don't think a baseball cap is dressy enough, and I don't want to wear a cowboy hat, or a '40's gangster fedora. The next logical conclusion is a derby. I wear it around, and nobody gives me strange looks like I'm 100 years out of style. I think the secret is the camel color. It makes it look stylish and is a neutral color, as opposed to an authentic 19th Century black. My teen-age son said: "I thought that hat would make you look weird, but it really doesn't."

A Short Oval
This hat is a little bit wider and shorter of an oval than most hats of its size. You may want to invest in a hat stretcher (good to prevent hat shrinkage if hats get wet as well) to adjust the shape if its fit is slightly off. Other than that it appears to be a good wool felt hat.

Camel Derby
Love it; wear it whenever appropriate; get admiring looks and compliments - then again, it takes a bit of chutzpah to wear a derby these days in Canada, as I get a few strange looks, too. But who cares. I also wear bow ties (because they are easier to tie as I'm lazy), so I'm used to that.

Perfect look..perfect fit
Have to say I was highly impressed with the tall derby (I ordered mine in black) It fits true to size and I have to say I am highly impressed with the quality of the hat. I read in another review that a purchaser felt the derby appeared "costume like" and not authentic ..I want to say I found this not to be true in my own opinion. Again, the fit is perfect..I have always worn a 7 3/8 and this derby fit perfect to order. I personally like the "tall version" of this iconic hat because it appears more "Old West American" than say a "British Bowler" with a stingy brim. Very cool look, very well made, and very authentic looking. It arrived much sooner than expected and packaged perfectly.. Will most definitely be a returning customer. Jerry New Jersey 😊

Very nice costume hat- put directly next to a vintage derby you can tell this is something modern, and I wouldn't use this in a situation where strict accuracy is needed, but for a costume piece this answers beautifully. Slightly heavier than a vintage derby but VERY stiff & durable- this can be knocked off and dropped with little or no fear of crushing it, and in my Steampunk Supervillain mode it could make a decent bit of armor.

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!...

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!

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.

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. ;))

I received my new derby just in time to wear to the company holiday party. It looked quite smart with a sprig of holly! It is well made and sturdy, and looks equally dashing on ladies or gents. I got quite a few compliments. Thanks so much for the topping topper, and for your great service (I got it in only two days - wow!)

runs a little big but excellent hat
My husband has wanted a bowler for quite some time, and this one certainly fits the want. The quality is excellent with very nice finishing touches. The crown and the brim are just the right size and hold up to good wear. We ordered according to the size chart, but it ended up being too big. We exchanged for the next size down and it fits and looks great! Love the way it looks and the understated "everyman"elegance. thank you!!

Nice, a bit short of deluxe
This is a nice Derby hat with a deluxe liner. However, the feel is boxy, hard. I discovered a local store after I had ordered mine and found the exact same style (but Scala brand) which felt like real deluxe, not stiff hard and at about the same price. THE FIT: ordered XL, too big so I sent it back to replace with a large, the large was a bit small for my head. My size seems to be in between the large and XL, so I had to go get it steamed for a better fit. The Scala that I tried on at the local store was size Large and fit perfect.

What a hat!
I wish I had bought for myself after seeing it. That hat looked amazing and the detail was very accurate. Including a hat pin and a small red feather. I wish you could find products like these local.

Not much to say about this. The hat arrived promptly and was exactly as described, of obvious good quality, fit as expected - and looks pretty spiffy, too. This was a good shopping experience from start to finish.

Love it! Professional looking and well built. Came in beautifully in a crush-proof container which was magnificent. This company is top of the line.

Perfect!
This hat is super attractive. I am happy I chose Historical Emporium. The description is completely accurate and I appreciate it is made of great material. I have not actually crushed the hat but sometimes I dent the top and the hat maintains it shape after. I really enjoy the hat.

Fits well
The hat goes very well with a vest I purchased somewhat recently and I wore the combination to a wedding and got many compliments. Also I have to mention that it is quite comfortable and fits well.

great for travel
This hat truly is crushable but then bounces right back into shape. My husband has wanted a bowler for a while and this one is his second from the emporium. We are very pleased with the quality and will be the most fashionable campers ever!

Very good but
not excellent. This hat lacks a certain pizazz. That said, it's far better than the other offered here - the wool one - which is wrongly sized and so stiff and hard as to be virtually unwearable. This one is comfortable and properly sized.

Bowler Hat
The hat is exactly what I needed to complete work costume. I work for a 1880-1900 theme park and even though they supply my costume I needed/wanted a hat of the period to complete my individual look. It worked perfect. The hat is made of very good materials and feels great on. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Ordered this hat as the sizing suggested, the medium was way too small. I exchanged for a large and its too large... fortunately I can deal with the larger one so I suppose that I'll keep it.

Hat review
Great hat. Not a costume quality hat but a wear it ever day quality. I have a large head. I need to get XXL in things like motorcycle helmets. I ordered an XL which is a big as they come here. It is a snug fit but no too bad. It looks fine an I could wear I all day

Quality product for the price
Good, quality hat for the price. Would rate as a 5 except we had to return the first order as this hat runs smaller than the measurements in the sizing chart. The good news was that the return process was very easy, and the second purchase arrived within 2 days with standard shipping! Will definitely order again from this site in the future.

Will purchase again in future
My experience with Historical Emporium was very good. I ordered my hat and received it in a very timely fashion. I am a musician and perform regularly and I received many compliments on it after I wore it on stage the first time. I accidentally ordered the wrong size when I first ordered it, I printed out the return slip, sent it back via USPS and received my correct size very quickly with relatively no hassle at all. A very pleasant buying experience. My only suggestion is that an email confirmation would be sent out when the order is made to the client, and the tracking # when it ships. This helps to confirm that the online purchase actually went through. Correct this, and the 4 stars jumps to 5 in my book! I love the hat. And look forward to more purchases in the future. A. Crosby
