The Classic Churchillian Bowler

This is the classic bowler hat reminiscent of Sir Winston Churchill’s signature look. Created in 1849 by London hat-makers Thomas and William Bowler, the hard, rounded hat (known as the Derby in America) first became popular among the working classes for its protection and durability. Over time it became adopted by London’s elite noble class and statesmen, including one of Great Britain’s most legendary prime ministers known for his peculiar sartorial style. The bowler is made of wool felt, has a grosgrain band, 2" curved brim, and leather sweatband. Imported. Black or Chocolate. Men’s sizes M (hat size 7-7 1/8; head circumference 22 1/4"), L (7 1/4-7 3/8; 23"), or XL (7 1/2-7 3/4; 23 7/8"). (16 oz.)

How To Determine Your Hat Size

To get the proper fit in a hat, we recommend that you measure your head to determine your proper hat size.

How to Measure Your Head
  • Use a good quality tape measure, such as those used for sewing, to achieve the most accurate measurement.
  • Wrap the measuring tape around your head. The tape should be placed where you want the hat to rest, usually 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch above the top of your ears. For the best-looking and most comfortable fit, the bottom of the tape should touch your eyebrows while positioned straight around your head. Don't pull the tape too snugly or your hat will fit that tightly.
  • Once you've positioned the tape exactly where you want it, measure to the nearest one-eighth inch, or three millimeters.
  • Measure your head a second and third time to ensure accuracy.
