    For centuries, the top hat has been a mark of distinguishment and class among discerning gentlemen, synonymous with Royal Ascot and weddings.

    The High Crown Town Shell is crafted from stiffened rabbit felt, trimmed with grosgrain along the brim, and finished with a wool felt band. The crown is 2.5cm taller than its relative, the Town Shell.

    Each topper is fully lined and with a leather inner headband. We also include a complimentary white hatbox to keep your topper in and can personalise the hat by monogramming.
