Bates Bowler - Black
The bowler hat has had a fascinating history. First created in London to protect a Nobleman's gamekeepers from the occasional whollop, it was then adopted as a hunting hat, then became the ultimate symbol of the British working class. It has featured in America's Wild West , and on the heads of countless film and tv characters since then.
