It comes with a standard premium leather sweatband and finished with a wool felt "Mourning" hatband.

SIZING NOTE: As these are rigid stiff Hats, even if you have the correct size; They do not readily confirm to your head SHAPE (like a soft Panama Hat). If you are buying online and not visiting to have our fitting service, often one may need ONE SIZE UP to fit the max "outer" periphery of your head shape, so it may fit "front to back" but then have slight gaps on the side. eg if you measure 55cm, you may find a 56cm fits better, unless you have our fitting service.

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 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.
