Block of the Month September 2015 – BB69 midi bowler

Every month we offer a discount on one of our popular designs and this month it is the midi bowler brim block BB69.

The midi blocks have one great advantage in that they will fit on all heads. Rather than having to fit the head exactly and therefore be the correct size, they will perch a little higher on the head but still retain a ‘hat’ rather than ‘fascinator’ look.

Our midi topper set CB52 and BB54 is very popular and we’ve seen lots of great photos of hats made with them. The BB69 however is perhaps overlooked which is a shame when you see how well it can turn out. The example below is by Gabriela Dumitran and is paired with the midi homburg crown CB110.

As well as the brim we will offer discount on the midi bowler crown CB104 and the midi homburg crown CB110 below.

You will receive 15% discount on the prices below when you quote ‘Block of the Month’

A great midi brim to accompany the midi bowler crown CB104. Upturn rolled all the way round, less in the front and back than the sides. String groove as standard. Head block not included.

CB110 – Midi Crown Block


A mini homburg! Again, this will combine very nicely with BB69 above. Also available is a creser to easily shape the valley, simply place it in the groove with a weight on the top and leave to dry.

  • A personal service

    Dedicated to providing you with the best hat blocks you can buy - here at Guy Morse-Brown, our focus is firmly on working with you to make your own personal creations.

    To make things with your hands is a fundamental part of human nature and whether it is the weaver, the felt maker, the block maker, or you the milliner, we are all part of a process that culminates in something that is more than just an object to admire - it is a statement, an expression that enriches the life of the wearer and creator alike.

    We feel that the parts of the process shouldn't be completely separated so we want to work with you to enable us both to share in it all. For that reason you won't find online ordering here on our website but you will find a huge range that shows that almost anything is possible. It's too simple to just add products to a cart; we want to keep alive the personal communication between block maker and milliner that used to be so essential. Get in touch with us and share your ideas, let us know what you want to make and we're ready to serve.

    They are almost too beautiful to use.

    I really appreciate your help, you are so approachable and kind and in my moment of stress your advice helped me see clearly :) I can't thank you enough x

    Judy Parker - AUSTRALIA

    I'm more than happy- everything is just perfect. I've worked on many different blocks but I think those are the best quality I've ever seen and now I feel like I've just got an early birthday gift :). Thank You very much!
