How to Pick a Winning Top Hat
Modern or antique?
Although pricier than their modern counterparts, antique silk top hats are conidered the height of beauty and elegance, thanks to their impressive shine, shape and lightness. Modern versions can be slightly bulkier but you’ll find they’re still handsome and wear well.
Although black top hats are considered slightly more formal, the Royal Ascot dress code specifies black or grey without any adornments. So it’s up to you! Choose a hat which complements your suit.
The taller the better! Taller hats look elegant and make for a great investment. Although it’s a personal choice, so it’s worth trying a few before making your decision.
Finally, after you’ve invested in a top hat, look after it! With proper care and specialist cleaning, it’ll last a lifetime if fully wrapped in silk and stored in a box away from moths and damp. We can even restore your top hat for you – just visit us in store.
