Mens Bowler Hat

The bowler hat is a true British hat style and it inspires many milliners to design their own interpretation of the bowler. At Oliver Sander, you will find a true classic black bowler for men, made of a stiff wool felt and nicely lined .

The bowler hat for men was developed in 1849 as an alternative hat shape to the high top hat. Gamekeepers were interested in a protective, more shallow hat shape that would not be knocked off under the branches of the woods. In the 20th century the bowler hat became popular with business men in the City of London, the City Gents.

Iconic celebreties like Charlie Chaplin, John Cleese and John Steel all contributed to the fame of the bowler hat style.
