Antique Silk Top Hats

Antique Silk Top Hats


Antique top hats are considered the height of elegance as a result of the impressive shine, shape, and lightness produced by polishing the silk plush. Unfortunately, this cloth is no longer manufactured, and therefore, those hats in pristine condition or a larger size fetch higher prices.


At Oliver Brown, we have the largest offering of antique silk top hats in the world, with over 1,200 in stock. We are also the only retailer who sells top hats in the Royal Enclosure at Ascot. Our collection is carefully curated to provide the finest hats still available today.


We offer a complimentary velvet polishing pad and hat box with every purchase of an antique silk hat. There are also many options for repairs, should your hat need a bit of attention. Follow these link to learn more about Top Hat Care and Refurbishment
