Topic: Bowler Hat!
Message: Posted by: Mario Morris (Jan 27, 2006 05:43PM)
I just got in the finest Bowler hats on the market. Made from black wool felt with stiff rims this specially designed for juggling, balancing, hat manipulation and finale load ticks.

Not like some on the market that will crack if you crushed them. This is a real worker's hat. This Bowler comes with inside leather trim for comfort and beautifully lined.

I have owned one of these hat's for the best part of 15 years and is a by great for hat manipulation.

If your looking for a real good hat look no further. http://www.fathatmagic.com

They cost about $98.00 but I will include the postage with it.

The nils Poll hats are awesome too. You should see if you can carry those as well. Great for those who do hat manip.



P.S. The site is looking great!

Thanks Dan
Nils Poll hat, are nice but they don't look like a regular hat. They are tow-tone so it is harder to match it with your suits, they look clown-ie and they are very heavy because they are trippled layared that is what gives them their bulky look. That is great if that is what your looking for. I personally think that the Bowler can give it self to magic and final loads best and it is very easy to mix and match it to your suits. Now I can get them in if their is a strong intereset in them.

I have one that is all black. You can get them in solid colors. They also make a derby as opposed to the regular Pol hat. the bowler hat looks just like a bowler hat.

That's great, is it still trippled layered if so they must still be heavy?

Yes, but heavy is a good thing if you also do hat manipulation. It is also good for loading a melon. :)

I do not think it is necessarily better than a regular bowler but variety is the spice of life as my mother said to the milkman. ;)

Hey Dan & Mario,
I've got several hats that I use, depending on the occasion. Bob Sheets got me started with the Jester hat years ago. Thanks Bob!!! Now have several multi-colored ones that match the outfits, plus several others. I guess my favorite is the Indiana Jones type hat, soft, flexible, holds lots of bucks.

I have a number as well, Bowler's, Trobies, Pork Pie, Fez I think I have got that many hat's that I have cases and trunks. There are some things I just collect.
And now bloody cups. :)

I didn't see the size of the Cellini Cups. Maybe I didn't pat close enough attention.
Also, I wear a pork pie that I picked up in New Orleans last year. The only problem is it is hot and I tend to perspire in it causing the dreaded whit ring. Do you have any suggestions for lining the hat or something to treat it with?

No, sweat and blood stained hat. Means your working hard.
Wear it with pride.

Thanks, I keep catching flack from other magi friends of mine. They don't Busk, so they're always trying to tell me that I dress unprofessional and the hats I wear need cleaned and so on...

Like I said, they don't busk.
Thanks for the re-inforcement Mario. I kind of liked the way it looked but sometines one gives in to others' suggestions.
