Black Fur Felt Dressage Top Hat - Christys
Dressage Top Hats for sale come in various types and colours, this Black Dressage comes with a standard premium leather sweatband and finished with a Grosgrain Hat Band and Pleat/Bow at the rear.
Equestrian codes have restrictions as to persons wearing Dressage Top Hats, please confirm if you are permitted. This hat is not designed as a Safety Hat.
The Dressage Topper is traditionally shorter than most standard Top Hats, at about 4¼" crown height, and traditionally it was worn when horse riding, being shorter may have been considered less likely to fall off it hitting a branch or a tree. The short crown style was also made popular by the characters such as "John Bull" who wore an Equestrian turnout including "Tops" riding boots.
We can also provide an additional optional fitting service, where we can measure your head shape, as well as your hat size, then remould the correct size Top Hat to your head shape to make it fit more comfortably. This process is usually done at our country workshop by our Hatter in person. Call us on 01344 638 838 for details.
