A similar style to other Grey Wool Felt Drab Top Hat, these Toppers this one come with a Black Grosgrain Hatband and Bow as opposed to a wool felt hatband.
Top Hats for sale come in various types and colours, this Grey Topper is made from an wool felt (not fur felt) that provides a timeless classic robust and low maintenance topper (Typically Wool 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 grosgrain hatband and bow.

Taditionally 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.
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.
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.
