shopping: October 2010 Archives

The once iconic Bowler Hat is set to make a fashion a comeback, according to tailors who say they are being inundated with requests for them.

Worn by Charlie Chaplin and the headwear of choice for civil servants and bankers the bowler dropped out of fashion in the 1960s.

But now tailors Austin Reed say they have has so many customer enquiries about the quintessential British headgear they will soon stock it for the first time in 12 years.

Celebrities including Jude Law have recently been pictured wearing one, which is thought to have sparked an interest in the hats which date back to 1849.

However, as a word of advise for anyone tempted to buy one, you really need to look in a mirror and check you look more like Jude Law than OddJob before purchasing.
