Hats have been worn as a form of style and status for many hundreds of years in London and the famous Bowler hat was invented in this very city by James Lock and Co. in 1849.
Hat makers embrace luxury materials such as felt and silk in order to create the 2 main types by which hats are divided into; brimmed and brimless.
Hats are also seen in sports such as polo and cricket where they act as a functional accessory that makes a sport easier to play. Spectators also usually wear hats to sporting events such as Horse Racing due to the tradition implemented by Royal Ascot where guests in the Royal Enclosure are required to wear hats.
