Men's Straw Hat

Men's Straw Top Hat

This is something new for me-- We are trying men's straw top hats! They are quite similar in style to ones worn at our local 1840's living history museum and I was told that the base was designed to look like hats worn in the British Navy, but I have been unable to find pictures to prove it (does anyone have one?) What I have found is an 1801 print from Ackermann's Repository showing the tall style of straw hat for men (albeit exaggerated) and of course, who could forget Jeremy Northam in Emma, with his dapper straw hat. Mine is hand trimmed with black grosgrain ribbon and a flat bow on one side.

These hats are "one size". The brim (it's an oval) which is 13"x12.5" across. The crown, also an oval, measures 7"x6.5" and 5.25" tall. The interior circumference is approximately 23". This includes a lining "band" which could be removed or padded to adjust the fit.

Men's Top Hat

Men's Holiday Top Hat

These fabric covered tophats are trimmed to order for your next Dickens' fair or Caroling event! Choose your ribbon and berry/bird trim options when ordering. Each hat is custom trimmed and no two will be exactly alike, but quantities are limited! When they are gone, they are gone for this season! The hat is shown here in Black and Red Buffalo Check ribbon with a Robin, pinecones and holly. Ribbon Trim will be done around the brim, with a flat bow on one side (the bow here is covered by the bird and holly.) Hats are approximately 8" tall, one size.
