Bowler hats are essential accessories in a man's wardrobe: whether for a ceremony or in everyday life, this category of hat is a must-have in the world of accessories for men and women.
Created in 1849 by London hatters Thomas and William Bowler, the Bowler is a rigid felt hat initially used for riding; it later became the complement of businessmen and today is a real ceremonial hat. In France it is called Chapeau Melon (melon hat) while in England it is called Bowler, keeping the name of the hatters who invented it.
The Bombetta hat is characterised by a very rounded cap, from which it derives its name, with a fairly narrow wing and a grosgrain brim.
Choosing the right bowler hat for your needs is a very important step and should be approached with great care: whether for a social event or a ceremony, the hat needs to be perfectly in tune with your style.
For more sophisticated looks, the choice of bowler hats will focus on renowned fabrics and more exclusive colours and patterns; a different choice if the use is "everyday": in this case the choice will fall on something that reflects one's style and with colours that match one's outfit.
We must also pay attention to the season in which we want to use this accessory: in the cold season the choice of hat will fall on a heavier and possibly waterproof fabric, while in the case of a summer bowler hat we can choose a canvas hat with brighter colours.
Choosing the right hat size is always a critical moment, also because every hat made by hand and then sold in hat shops has very different sizes compared to the classic ones that clothing shops have accustomed us to.
Hat sizes are calculated in centimetres and range from size 55 (the smallest) to 62 (the largest). There is a very simple and quick procedure to find out which size is right for you.
To calculate your correct hat size all you have to do is take a tape measure, measure the circumference of your head by holding the tape measure just one centimetre above your ears, which is the point where your hat will fit perfectly.
If you don't have a tape measure, you can calculate the size simply by using a piece of string, a string or a shoelace from your shoes: in the same way as before, use the tape measure to calculate the circumference, mark with a pen or a felt-tip pen the point where the two parts of the shoelace meet and then use a ruler or a normal tape measure to measure the shoelace.
