This is a fine hat from the world renowned hatter Tress and Company who made hats here in London from the mid-1800s until the year of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. Their Southwark factory is now the site of the Mad Hatter Hotel - http://www.madhatterhotel.co.uk . Silk lined, with new inner band and Ascot style band and bow, this hat would complete perfectly the attire of any gentleman attending this year’s Royal Ascot race meeting.

VT177J
Size: 7 ¼

This topper arrived with its insides missing so we are unsure of the maker. Despite its "orphan" status the hat is obviously of high breeding. Once we have sorted out the missing elements and restored it fully it will be ideal for a gentleman requiring a silk topper for formal all occasions including Royal Ascot.
