HERE IS THE HISTORY OF THE BOWLER:
 

Perhaps one of the most famous icons of the 21st century to wear a bowler hat was Sir Winston Churchill.

Cavalry officers still traditional wear Bowler hats and suits for their annual parade and both Princes William and Harry have worn them for official duties. The tradition for officers to wear bowler hats for their annual parade dates back to the first such event 82 years ago, when the outfit was considered correct dress for walking out.

Officers are still expected to wear their City gent attire whenever they are in London on duty.

The Bowler rather than a cowboy hat or a Stetson was also the most popular hat worn by men in America in the 19th century - such Billy the Kid and Butch Cassidy.

Lock & Co still sells around 4,000 to 5,000 Bowlers each year "mostly to City workers, ex-miolitary gentlemen and young Americans".

In the James Bond film Goldfinger, the evil henchman Oddjob threw an iconic, razor-edged bowler as a weapon.

Thomson and Thompson, identical twin detectives from Herge's The Adventures of Tintin, are recognisable for their bowler hats and walking sticks

The villains in the steampunk anime Steamboy wear bowler hats; as well as one of Batman's best known villains, The Riddler.

In Stanley Kubrick's film A Clockwork Orange the lead character Alex DeLarge wears a bowler hat

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were well-known for their bowler hats, as was Lou Costello.

During the Silent Film Era, Charlie Chaplin's character "The Tramp" almost always wore a bowler.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
