Chauffeurs hats are designed to sit high on the head for this reason it’s usually best, when purchasing one, to buy one that is slightly smaller than your usual hat size.
The chauffeurs hat or cap is possibly the most important part of the chauffeurs uniform. It is the finishing touch to that required professional look.
The round domed hat has been around since the early 1900’s
When purchasing a hat we recommend that you use a specialist tailor for example the chauffeurs hat pictured above can be purchased from FormalTailor.com
That said if you’re newly setting out as professional chauffeur and are on a limited budget then you can often pick up a decent used hat on eBay. It’s definitely worth checking it out to see what’s on offer.

Chauffeur Cap or Hat
Most traditional chauffeur hats feature a cockade (a rosette or knot of ribbons) and chin strap. When purchasing try to look for one that is fully lined with an internal sweatband. You will be grateful of this additional comfort on hot days.
