Top Hat & Derby

Top hats and derby hats are the perfect finishing touch for all kinds of character costumes and period outfits. Black ones work well with historical outfits and colorful ones are a dramatic touch for all kinds of entertainer costumes.

Traditional top hats and stovepipe styles are black felt with tall cylinder centers. They were worn by gentlemen in the late 18th Century through to the early part of the 20th. These tall hats are iconic of formal attire of those days and are often associated with the upper class. Wear a tophat with an Abraham Lincoln costume or any period gentleman's outfit.
