The bowler hat, aka the 'Derby', is a iconic menswear item that dates back to Victorian England of the mid-late 1800's. The style of hat has gone on to be associated with many famous actors, social castes and fictional personages. Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, James Bond nemesis, Oddjob (whose derby featured a deadly razor sharp edge) as well as the droogs from the movie "A Clockwork Orange" all are known visually for their Bowlered noggins. This brown beaver felt derby is a Pilgrim brand hat from the late 60's - early/mid 70's. The interior is lined in black satin and the crown has a plastic internal covering. It fits like a snug size 7. The total circumference is 21.5" which equates to a 6 7/8 but the soft felt will conform to the shape of your head and may allow a fit of the above mentioned size 7.
