Another interesting item to come through our doors today

This late Victorian double ended brush is used for keeping your Top Hat in tip top condition.

We love our job, always something new to learn about and share.

History of the Top Hat

Also known as a Topper, a Cylinder Hat or a High Hat, the Top Hat is a tall flat-crowned hat for men associated with formal wear such as morning dress or frock coats.  Made of black or grey silk, the Top Hat came onto the scene in the late 18th century and had declined by the 1960's.
