Men's Hats . . . The Bowler

The classic American derby.

“The bowler, not the cowboy hat or sombrero, was the most popular
hat in the American West, prompting Lucius Beebe to call it "the hat
that won the West". Both cowboys and railroad workers preferred
the hat because it would not blow off easily in strong wind, or when
sticking one's head out the window of a speeding train. It was worn by
both lawmen and outlaws, including Bat Masterson, Butch Cassidy,
Black Bart, and Billy the Kid.” from Wikipedia.
