We don't think there is a better wool felt bowler (or derby) in brown out there! This style was created in 1850 as a hard hat for horseback riding while patrolling a game reserve by an English warden. In that tradition, this Jaxon version of the bowler is a little stiffer than its competitors. And in true English Style, a little shorter than the later American Versions. The 100% wool felt quality is impressive and the hat comes fully lined with the Jaxon logo in the tips. The hat is trimmed with a black grosgrain ribbon with a bow finish and side feather. The brim's edge in bound in grosgrain. For more info on bowlers see our info page on ~the bowler//Athe_bowler~ in our ~iconic hats page//Aiconic_hats~.
