The top hat
Walking home on Saturday night, this couple passed me, and the guy was wearing the most amazing top hat. Continuing my walk home I kept thinking on top hats – how awesomely cool they are and how sad it is that they just disappeared out of our everyday wardrobe. So, this will be my attempt (the first of many) to encourage the top hat’s comeback.
The top hat “is a tall, flat-crowned, broad-brimmed hat”, which stayed in fashion for over 200 years, from the mid 18th to the mid 20th century.
They come in various colors and made from various materials, but they all have in common that they look smashing and can put the umph in any outfit.
Did you know that the Jägers in the Russian Imperial Army wore top hats as part of their uniforms for nine years? That’s so lovely! If I ever go to war (which, yeah, I can totally see happening) I want my enemies to wear top hats. There’s nothing wrong in fighting with style, darling.
Now, if my post can’t convince you, maybe some of these fabulous people can:
