Summer and Winter Bowler Hats

Bowler hats are essential accessories in the male wardrobe: both for a ceremony and in everyday life, this category of hats represents a must in the world of accessories for men and women.

Created in 1849 by the London hatters Thomas and William Bowler, the Bowler is a rigid felt hat initially used for horse riding; later it became the complement of businessmen and today it 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 created it.

The Bombetta hat is characterized by a very rounded cap, from which it derives its name, with a fairly narrow wing, edge folded to the brim in grosgrain.

How to choose the most suitable bowler hat for you

Choosing the bowler hat that best suits your needs is a very important phase and must be faced with great attention: both in the case of a social event or for a ceremony, the hat must be perfectly in tune with your style.

For the most refined looks, the choice of the bowler hat will focus on renowned fabrics with the most exclusive colors and patterns; a different choice instead if the use is "daily": in this case the choice will fall on something that reflects one's style and with colors to match one's outfit.

You must also pay attention to the seasonality in which you want to use this accessory: in the cold seasons the choice of the hat will fall on a heavier and possibly waterproof fabric, while in the case of a summer bowler hat we can choose it in canvas with brighter colors.

How to Choose the Right Hat Size

Choosing the correct hat size is always a critical moment also because each hat made with craftsmanship and then sold in hats have very different sizes compared to the classic ones to which clothing stores have become accustomed.

The sizes for hats are calculated in centimeters and range from size 55 (the smallest) up to 62 (the largest); to understand which is the most suitable size for us we need to follow an extremely simple and quick procedure.

To calculate your correct hat size, all you need to do is take a tailor's tape measure, measure the circumference of your head keeping the tape measure just one centimeter above your ears, which is the point where your hat will fit perfectly.

If you do not have a tailor's meter, you can calculate the size simply using a piece of string, a string or a lace of your shoes: in the same procedure as before, calculate the circumference with the meter, mark with a pen or a felt-tip pen at the point where the two parts of the lace meet, after which with a ruler or a normal meter measure the lace.
