    The bowler hat, also known as a coke hat, derby (US), billycock or bombín,[1] is a hard felt hat with a rounded crown originally created in 1849 for the British soldier and politician Edward Coke, the younger brother of the 2nd Earl of Leicester. The bowler hat was popular with the working class during the Victorian era though it came to form the official work uniform of bankers.[2] Later in the United Kingdom, it would come to be worn as work dress by the officers of the Queen's Guards. Thought that was interesting.
