Black Fur Felt Melusine Top Hat - Christys
Top Hats for sale come in various types and colours, this Black Topper is made from a "Melusine" Fur Felt, that gives the appearance of a Vintage Silk Plush Top Hat. It is a Polished Top Hat, and can show a luxurious high sheen and lustre similar to an antique silk top hat (or a beaver top hat) effect due to long nap fibres of the "Melusine" fur felt, as opposed to a "Drab" fur felt. It comes with a standard premium leather sweatband and finished with a wool felt "Mourning" hatband.
The Topper, at about 5¼" crown height, provides a classic Victorian or Edwardian Period fashion wear style, a refined look perfect for The Social Season in the UK, including the Royal Enclosure Dress Code for Gentlemen at Ascot Racecourse, Weddings, Investitures, Coach / Carriage Driving and other Formal occasions.
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.
Whilst this is a stiffened Top Hat it is not designed or intended as a Safety Riding Hat.
