Top hats - endless glamour

The top hat is probably the most classic headwear for special occasions. The timeless classic with the curved-up brim does not just give ringmasters in the circus or magicians who make rabbits appear from their hats a magnificent presence. Stylishly combined with a tailcoat, the classic hat is a popular headpiece at weddings, sophisticated evenings and other social events. The top hat, which is usually made from black felt, is part of the dress code of competitors taking part in dressage competitions.

Top hats by Stetson are made from precious rabbit hair, which lend the striking hats their silky soft wearing comfort. Elegant hat decorations made from lustrous fabrics are not uncommon and give this classic hat shape an elegant finish. A leathery lining combined with a smooth fabric make this hat from the house of Stetson comfortable to wear.

The top hat, which is usually made from black felt, is part of the dress code of competitors taking part in dressage competitions. Whilst they were initially made from light grey or beige felt, today’s designs are available in black or dark grey shades. The chapeau claque, a collapsible top hat, is the perfect companion when travelling. It is a special version of the top hat which can be flattened due to a silk-covered wire mechanism, so that it is only as tall as the brim. In the past, when it was unheard of to wear a top hat in the daytime, it was associated with horse riding. In the 19th century however, the tall, cylindrical hat became a symbol for the middle class. Proud aristocrats resisted taking off their top hats during celebrations. The black version of the top hat with red lining was replaced by a grey version to be worn during the daytime. Top hats made for women were decorated with colourful ribbons, bows and borders. After a while, the top hat came to be associated with chimney sweepers and coachmen.
