The Bowler hat, sometimes known as a Derby or Coke is a true British classic. The Bowler hat is believed to have been originally designed for Edward Coke. He needed something to protect his head whilst out riding and the Top Hat, typically worn, kept getting knocked off from over-hanging branches. The Bowler’s popularity, which once defined civil servants and bankers has increased over the years and became a fashion statement.
