Leading Silk Top Hat Specialists. Suppliers of 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 many of these at Royal Ascot! Thirdly, be aware of expensive imitations and that gentlemen always had their silk top hats ironed and never finely sprayed with water. Lastly, don't be fooled into thinking your silk top hat was fitted with the wrong band, or belonged to a funeral director. Mourning bands were put on silk top hats in 1861 for a reason, as a mark of respect upon the death of Prince Albert. They continue to be used to this day.


These are some of the reasons discerning gentlemen prefer to 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 what they're getting is original and that original items hold their value. They also know that we solely specialise in original antique silk top hats, supplying the very best to the very best. We have the largest selection of unadulturated 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.


We hope the above information has been informative in helping you decide whether to purchase a reconditioned, restored or refurbished silk top hat elsewhere, or an original from us.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
