Derby Daze

Vented hats are felt hats with hand cut leather or fabric covered gaskets, and each rivet is set by hand. Embellishments are held on by E-6000.

Derby hats have a taller crown (top part of the hat that isn’t the brim) than Bowler hats do. I use Derbys for venting because there is more room for cutting the holes and adding the leather gaskets and other embellishments.

Most of these hats area Scala brand and their size chart can be easily looked up online.

My hubby and I live in the desert. Steampunk and Victorian clothing is notoriously hot to wear. When it comes to topping our head with hats on top of that warm clothing, it just seemed unbearable. We started with trying to add a fan to the top of the hat, but found it was too heavy, shook like mad, and didn’t push enough air to cool us. So, we took it off and magic happened. If you wear a Vented Hat, the breeze cools you almost instantly. They are infinitely cooler to wear than a fully enclosed hat. When you walk into an air conditioned building from the outside, it feels like a peppermint chocolate candy commercial is being instantly filmed on your head. It’s bliss! At night, the Vented Hats don’t keep the heat in at all, so I’ve been known to wear a scarf or handkerchief on the top of my head, under the Vented Hat to keep warm.
