The World's Leading Silk Top Hat Specialists. Supplying Fine Original Antique Silk Top Hats and Vintage Silk Top Hats For Royal Ascot.


For those of you wishing to purchase an antique silk top hat, it's extremely important you make us your first port of call. We will help you to choose the correct Silk Top Hat. One that's the perfect height, shape and fit. That balances the contours of your face and sits correctly on your head, showing both your face and silk top hat as one mirror image. Beware of expensive pit falls when choosing your silk top hat. Firstly, it might not be an original and secondly, it might fit you perfectly, but look terribly silly, in that the crown might be much wider or narrower than the width of your face, or too tall or too short compared to your height. You'll see alot of these at Royal Ascot! Thirdly, beware of expensive imitations and don't be fooled into thinking your silk top hat's been fitted with the wrong band, or belonged to a funeral director. Mourning bands were put on silk top hats in 1910 for a reason, as a mark of respect upon the death of King Edward V11. Lastly, silk top hats were always ironed and never sprayed with water.


These are some of the reasons discerning gentlemen choose us, when purchasing their silk top hats and leather hat boxes, for The Derby, Royal Ascot, or any other fitting occasion. They simply know that original items hold their value and that our main focus has always been silk top hats, in supplying the very best to the very best. We have the largest selection of original, unadulturated antique silk top hats and vintage silk top hats in the country to choose from, specialising in a great variety of different makes, shapes and sizes, at affordable prices; all of which are fitted with utmost precision and shaped to the contours of the head, for ultimate comfort and fit.


This should clearly explain why there's absolutely no need to purchase a reconditioned, restored or refurbished silk top hat elsewhere, when you could purchase an original from us.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
