Black Silk Toppers - Larger Sizes

Larger toppers for sale. Bigger hats, sized 7⅜ and above, are not easy to find. However we usually have a stock of hats in larger sizes, all fully restored.

Please be aware that some of the silk top hat we have for sale may not be listed.
While we try to keep the list up to date we have new hats arriving all the time. Phone or email for current stock details.

Size: 7 ⅜
Price: £2100.00

This beautiful top hat has been fully refurbished by us and is now ready to complete a gentleman's Royal Enclosure habiliments. Do note that it is rare to find a vintage top hat which, even though the correct size, fits properly. Toppers are rigid and do not flex to match the shape of the wearer's head. We shape the hats we sell to the contours of your head using special equipment; this gives the best and most comfortable possible fit.
