Vintage silk top Hats for sale.
Royal Ascot, London & The Cotswolds.

For those of you wishing to purchase the very finest antique silk top hat for Royal Ascot it should be mandatory you make us your first port of call. We will help you to choose 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 antique silk top hat as one mirror image.

For years discerning gentlemen have chosen us for their antique silk top hats and leather hat boxes, for Royal Ascot, The Derby, or other fitting occasions. They simply want an original as they know originality holds value. They relish the fact we hold the largest collection of originals in the world and supply only the very best to the very best, in offering a great variety of different makes, shapes and sizes, all of which are contoured to the head for ultimate comfort and fit.

When choosing your silk top hat do your research and make sure it's in fine original condition as it may have been reconditioned. Then try it on to see how ridiculous it might look, in that the crown might be much wider or narrower than the width of your face, or too tall or too short compared to that of your height, or even too large, resting on your ears like a baby's bonnet. Also, be aware of expensive imitations and don't be fooled into thinking your silk top hat belonged to a funeral director because it carries a felt mourning band and needs to be replaced with a modern band and bow.The mourning band replaced the band and bow in 1861 on the death of Prince Albert and adorns antique silk top hats to this day.

We hope the above has persuaded you to compare your findings, in that purchasing from us is far the superior option to purchasing a reconditioned antique silk top hat elsewhere.

We look forward to making your acquaintance...
