Antique Silk Top Hats

Oliver Brown specialises in top hats offering a substantial collection of beautiful antiques and contemporary alternatives. Antique silk black 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 6⅝" - 8" (54-64cm) and the hats are supplied with a complimentary Oliver Brown top hat box.  Prices start from £500, please contact us for more information.

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.
