About this deal
While some hats belonged to the first episode set in 19th century London, other hats were worn in other episodes set in the modern era. Lastly, the character is seen wearing a bowler hat in a few scenes. Bowler hats are made of stiff felt and have a round crown. They can be worn with both formal and semi-formal wear.

There is no question, though, that despite this, Holmes remains one of the few characters that can instantly be recognized by his silhouette. Another hat that Holmes wears is the newsboy cap. This was a typical style worn in the 19th and 20th centuries. The newsboy hat looks like a flat cap but has a more round and puffier body. The film takes place in London in the 1890s, so the choice makes sense with the film’s period.
