Sir Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin, and the Riddler from Batman... What did they have in common? That's right, a bowler hat!
Bowler hats were created back in the 1840s, when British soldier and politician William Coke ordered this kind of a hat for his gamekeepers. Before that they had worn top hats, but such a design allowed them to ride under low-hanging branches in the forest. At fisrt bowler hats were taken as a part of the work uniforms, until Edward VII made them fashionable.
I cannot imagine my
wardrobe life without hats! Without them almost every outfit seems boring and unfinished and I can't do anything about that.
