The top hat is a traditionally elegant style that is characterized by a tall oval crown with a flat top and either flat or slightly curved brim. Top hats or toppers as they can be called, were worn primarily throughout the 1700s and 1800's but had mostly faded out of style by WWII. Nowadays they are typically worn for only the most formal events around the globe but have also found new life in the Steampunk genre of style. While we carry mostly wool ones, the most exquisite ones are made of silk and fur felt, which is beaver or rabbit fur. Whatever your need for it, the top hat is an iconic style that is sure to be instantly recognized and stand out!
