    This is not a bowler hat. The shape is very distinctive, and I've wanted one since I saw it in this film. Bowler hats typically look very flat, low and symmetrical, like this:

    All the bowlers I can find are squat, flat, round affairs as originally pictured, though. Is there a name for this...variant?

    They're not very bowlerish out of profile. Thinner at the top, with the front angled down.

    On second thoughts, it looks kind of like a homburg, which would make sense considering where the movie's set.

    Here's a couple pics for comparison:

    Looks like he has a brush on the side, too.

    Definitely not a fedora. Besides, such a gentleman as a Crown Prince would not be seen dead in one :)

    A derby is a bowler hat, isnt it?
    Wear both at the same time for maximum props

    This is true, the Derby was only called a Derby as some yank saw a Brit wearing one at a Derby (horse race) and began making them and naming them Derbys i think you'll find. I was subjected to a long conversation with a guy who worked in a hat shop when i was at uni. *Yawn*
