Steel Brimmed Bowler Hat
These film is so iconic that it seems every scene has a stunning historical cinematic moment for the viewer, shortly after we meet Goldfinger’s stunning 1937 12 cylinder Rolls Royce Phantom 337, Oddjob flings a steel brimmed bowler hat at a statue and knocks its head off.
Fortunately, Goldfinder owns the golf club.
Other Hats Are Available
As they might say on the BBC...
While Bowler Hats are not currently in vogue, another type of headwear has experienced a renaissance in recent years.
The Flat Cap.
While most would have had at least one flat cap prior to the Second World War, by the time of the 1970s it was seen as the preserve of men from the north of England.
The post millennium period has however seen a return to popularity and many UK menswear stores carry them as standard.
