The English Derby


Beaver Felt

The English Derby was a popular shape worn in the Victorian and Edwardian eras and well into the 1930's. It has a short rolled brim with a round dome crown and bound edge. Similar to the bowler, but a more rounded top and shorter brim. Shown in brown w/ brown band. 

If uncertain of you hat size. Use a seamstress tape measure to measure around your head just above the ear and around the forehead level. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tight- you want your hat fitted, but comfortable and not extremely tight. Then let us know your measurement in inches.
