Gentlemen began to replace the tricorne hat with top hats at the end of the 18th century. Popular throughout the 19th century, top hats are still considered the most elegant headwear of gentlemen. Top hats are traditionally associated with formal wear such as white tie, morning dress, or frock coat but then again – also with wanderers, street musicians, and magicians.
Our top hat does not come with a white rabbit but is crafted of precious coney wool with a hairy surface. The umber top hat also has a slightly lower crown than our black cylinder hat.
