Top Hats for sale come in various types and colours, this Grey Topper is made from an premium "Drab" fur felt (not "Melusine" fur felt) that provides a timeless classic robust and low maintenance topper (Typically "Drab" felts need brushing as opposed additional care for polished hats like Antique / Vintage Silk Plush Top Hats and "Melusine" fur felt hats that have a luxurious high sheen and lustre). It comes with a standard premium leather sweatband and finished with a wool felt "Mourning" hatband.
Traditionally at the Royal Enclosure for many years, "Ascot Grey" was considered the colour associated with Toppers for the Royal Week of Racing in June at Ascot. As in days past "Black" toppers would be more frequent for Everyday-wear, and Evening-wear; So Grey became considered more Day-wear at select events like no other when Toppers were more frequently worn.
The "Taller" Topper, at about 6¼" crown height, provides a classic tall 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.
