What's in a Name? #7: Bowler Hat

14 mins - Published Thu, May 4, 2017 by Gordon Frye and Nancy Frye

Famously worn by the likes of Charlie Chaplin, and Bat Masterson, the bowler is a hat with pizzazz. It was also worn by super action guy John Steed. It’s too bad James Bond didn’t also customarily wear one; this being episode 007 and all.
