Top Hats at Patey

Top hats are always so elegant. A good top hat is made from silk and you use a velvet mini pillow to brush the silk to give it a beautiful shine. These hats are from Patey Hats. Patey Hats is part of the Firmin & Sons group, who made Prince William’s uniform for his wedding. The top hats are made using the same skills as hat makers in the eighteenth century.

This is a rare vintage white silk tophat (it’s not for sale). I love the old labels inside the hat.
