Item details

This is a beautiful hat block set made by premier block makers Guy Morse-Brown (UK).

It is a rare XXXL and the finished hat will be size 26" (men's 8+).

It is a classic bowler or derby design. Crown is marked CB114. Crown height is approx. 4.5"

The crown block can be attached to any of GMB's down-turned or cloche brim blocks with the screw holes, as long as the sizes are compatible. It's a versatile shape that can be used to create a variety of men's and women's hat styles.

NOTE: the small block stand shown in photos 1 & 2 is NOT included with the two hat blocks!

This set includes a flange brim used to create a classic upturned bowler brim. Brim block is marked BB64. It's inner circumference measures 26.75" - just a but bigger than the crown block so you can "block in one." Brim block includes attached legs to make this process easier.

Block has an integral string groove that allows the traditional turned-over brim to be created straight on the block. The groove ‘fades out’ at the front & back. Finished hat brim measures approx. 2" wide.

Blocks are in excellent condition and were only used once. There are a few small pinholes on the brim block, as seen in the last photo.

$300 USD plus shipping fees, calculated at checkout. I do ship internationally and all packages include insurance and tracking info.

Additional policies

Most hats are a Medium, or 22 1/2" hat size. Size will be noted in the description of each hat; if you need it a little bit smaller or larger, please add a brief comment to your order.

Not sure of your hat size? Measure the head horizontally above the eyebrows, around the largest part of the head. Do not wrap the measuring tape too tightly or the hat will not have a comfortable fit. Adult women's sizes average 22 1/2 to 23 inches. Please double-check your measurement, especially if it is smaller than 22" or larger than 23".

I have customers from 21" to 26" - I can't make every style in every size, but I can make you a hat that fits perfectly.
