Oliver Brown is the official Royal Ascot Licensee for Top Hats.

It being a specialty, we offer the largest collection of antiques silk hats in the world. Antique silk top hats are considered the height of beauty and elegance because of their impressive shine, shape and lightness, which is second to none. Made from a unique silk plush with a long nap, giving it the beautifully polished look, we recognise today. The looms that made this fabric are no longer in existence and general production has ceased. As a result, those in a pristine condition or a larger size can be very rare and fetch higher prices. We have all sizes available from 6" - 8" (54-64cm), and the hats are supplied with a complimentary Oliver Brown top hat box and velvet polishing pad.

Please note that for silk hats larger than 7 5/8" (62cm), it is advisable to come into store

If you would like our top hat expert to visit you for a specialist fitting, we are able to bring our collection of Antique Silk Top Hats to you by appointment. Please call 07768 395285 to request an appointment.
