All our customers are shown how to care for their toppers. Caring for your Black Silk Top Hat properly will ensure it give you years of excellent service.


Vintage Top Hats should be stored in leather or cardboard boxes and should always be brushed to ensure the "dust of the social arena" is cleared away before the next outing.

The hat within its box should be stored in a dry, standard heat, constant atmosphere.

We can of course supply leather hat boxes and top hat brushes.

If a hat gets wet in the rain (as opposed to the spray of champagne!) then do not attempt to place it near heat but allow it to dry naturally and then brush it vigorously with the nap thereafter.

To keep your hat looking its best return it to us from time to time to be cleaned and polished.
