A style that bridged the class system, the Derby was once sought after for its stellar shape. Based on Bailey of Hollywood's earliest designs, their modern Derby hat hasn't strayed from the classic. Featuring a pencil roll brim with bound edge, the Derby includes a removable feather detail and a grosgrain ribbon hat with that comes to a squared off bow. The Derby includes a custom Bailey lining.
I waited a few years, looking for the right Derby that fell within my price range. This was worth the wait.
Bailey® began producing fine dress headwear in 1922, priding itself on founder George Bailey’s emphasis on the importance of a professionally crafted hat. Bailey evolved from fine dress headwear to include a Western and Outdoor collection, allowing Bailey to segue into a broader market. Bailey Hats are known for the craftsmanship of their product; quality that is apparent in all styles and luxury fibers and fabrics including fur felt, leather, genuine Panama, straw, wool and cloth hats and caps.
Classic styles such as fedoras, godfathers and derby’s were engineered and popularized by Bailey Hats in the 1920’s. Bailey Hats were seen on silver screen icons like Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart.
