The Bowler Hat, or Derby, as it is known in the United States, comes from... where else? London. First seen in 1850 as the creation of George and James Lock, this fun shape was meant to be used as a hard hat for the horse-riding set. Yawn! In a short while it became de riguer at horsey events of the aformentioned milieu. Muïo-Bix loves wearing his fully aware of the fact that he is taking it out of this, shall we say stagnant context, and wearing it with his BillyBoy* print shirt and his handsome face down the streets of any city center.
