Made in the USA


The top hat caused a riot the first time it was seen on the streets of London. The perpetrating "haberdasher" was John Hetherington, the hat's designer, who first adorned the style publicly in 1797. According to a contemporary newspaper account, passersby panicked at the sight and ran in terror. Hetherington was hauled into court for wearing "a tall structure having a shining luster calculated to frighten timid people." He was fined £500.
By the 1880's, the top hat was worn by men of every station in life for daily and formal wear without fear of fines. Our Founder, George Bollman, wore this style as he worked to grow his factory and advance the craft of hat making. Bollman shaped these hats on five-piece wooden blocks which were cured in ovens. Our most pronounced "hour glass" shapes are still hand blocked and cured in this method today.


6 1/8" high "hour glass" shape crown.
2-3/4" Hand-Shaped bound edge brim.

Genuine wool felt.
Hand Finished
Printed leather sweat, custom 140th lining.

$100.00
