I was impressed with how authentic the top hat looks and feels up close. An added surprise that was not in the picture was a feather and hat pin tucked into the hat band. No doubt, you'll love this hat.

AWESOME!!!
Awesome quality product!! I ordered a black John Bull top hat, and it is beautiful! The sizing was spot on, it arrived much more quickly than I imagined, and in perfect condition. I'm not sure what I expected, but I was more than impressed with both the materials and workmanship, and will gladly recommend Historical Emporium to my friends and colleagues!

Great Price
Great Price and fits great. I have not worn this hat to an event yet however I can already tell you that I love this hat over the Coachman's that I have previously purchased couple of months ago. Coachman's hat feels cheaply made compared to the John Bull which is Ironic when you compare the prices.

Great Hat
The hat came quickly, the size was appropriate. The shape around the hat band is a tad strange, but I believe with some wear and sweat it will mold to the head. I am a magician and I will be using this hat extremely often and am pleased with the purchase.

I'm a big Victorian era clothing fan and I wanted a top hat to match my ivory suit. I ordered the hat and not only was the pricing great, but I received a quality top hat and I couldn't take it off for hours!!! Thanks Historical Emporium for the business. I will be back for the gray one soon!

I scoured the web and known hat suppliers but was only able to find a 'white' top hat that was a costume piece, take over a month to ship or require custom ordering. HE had what I needed in stock and after wearing it, is certainly the quality I had hoped for.

I have a black top hat just like this one. I am very pleased with how it is made and the type of service I have got. I would recommend this site and this hat to anyone who enjoys the formal look. I have a very large head and it can be difficult to find a hat that fits. This one fits great and I am very pleased.

Great Hat and Well Made
I wear a black top hat during the cooler months but during the summer I want to wear white and seersucker suits, so wanted a white top hat. This is very well made and beautiful. I stuff the crown with baby stuffed rabbits so that I can surprise the children that come through the door. (And more than a few of the adults).

This hat was a good price, and it's a very nice quality. I only wish that it came in snow white instead of Ivory, but, a little fabric spray paint took care of that problem just fine. I would definitely order again from this company. Shipping was fast, and my hate came without any damage as it was well packaged. Thank you guys!

The Tops of the Top Hats
This hat is excellent in appearance, and very well constructed. It is ideal for a tall man as its height is proportionate for a tall person. My head size is a bit larger than the Large size but not large enough for Extra Large so I used a hat jack to stretch it a bit. It fits perfectly! I wore it for the first time at my installation as Worshipful Master of my Masonic Lodge and it was a hit! I shall wear it at all meetings of my lodge, as the Master is supposed to do.

I was on the fence between this top hat and the Victorian top hat, but chose this one due to the price. I was pleasantly surprised by the craftsmanship of the hat and how it looks. I will be wearing it this week for a bicentennial celebration. Only complaint is that it is a little loose, but knowing how the sizing works I'd prefer it to be a little loose than a little snug :)

When I got the e-mail from Historical Emporium with the adv for the Lincoln Tall Crown Top Hat, I knew I had to have one. I actually bought one for myself and one for my son who is a great fan of Abe Lincoln, and teaches history in middle school here. The hats arrived promptly. Both fit perfectly. They are tall, stiff, very black, and quite eye-catching. This is an incredible hat which will go perfectly with my HE cut-away coat.

Top Hat
It is, indeed, a Top Hat. It is well made and fills a much needed niche in any Reenactor/Actor's hat collection. I have one of the original screen worn high toppers made in Rome, Italy for the film Gangs of New York in my collection, and this one is close in quality, and at a much more affordable price. Repros made by the same Italian firm run upwards of $300+shipping to the US. I have wanted one I can wear for day-to-day shows and I'm not about to wear my collector's item for that! This hat fits the bill nicely. It is made of a nice sturdy wool with enough lacquer to keep it looking nice even after it has been shot off your head a few times , or sat on at a cotillion. I recommend it highly. - Sourdoh

I use this hat for steampunk conventions and it serves its purpose wonderfully. I was getting complements all weekend on my hat when I went to TempleCon. The wool is great quality and the hat is still versatile enough to modify. I, myself, put a new hat band on it. I strongly recommend this hat.

I'm a serious hat person. I needed to get a top hat of this precise style and size, and I needed it quickly. I found it on this site (I have been here before). I left a message that if it were possible I'd like to have it within ten days . . .. it arrived, well packed, in four. Excellent quality and everything I expected here . . . . and I set the bar very high. thanks folks! Now, where did I leave my bowler?

Earlier this year, I purchased a black bowler to complete my outfit...or so I thought! As an American Civil War reenactor, I occasionally dress civilian for non military living history demonstrations. I also like looking my best at Easter, Christmas, weddings, even funerals. This hat is the icing to a beautiful Victorian outfit. The grey color also works for my character's Confederate sympathies!

I love this hat, it is a very sturdy quality and I was very revlieved that they had a XL hat, as my head could be in equivalent to giants. When I'm not using it, Sir Chillington (My Refridgerator) wears it, and I must say, he looks quite dapper with his tophat and giant magnetic mustache. Thanks Emporium!

I really like this hat!
The straw is tightly and finely hand woven Panama Hat from Ecuador. The price is very reasonable. I have a Panama Fedora for which I paid over $200 six years ago and this is comparable in quality. I'll be using it for my musical stage performances in Columbia, CA this next month and for years to come. For the hot weather you can't beat a Panama. With moderate care, they last forever. I wanted a topper that was a little lower in height and this fits the bill perfectly. I really like this hat!

This was the best deal I have found anyplace while looking for a SteamPunk top hat. I was thinking I hope this is close to the quality of the other hats I have bought from Historical emporium. Well first off when it arrived I was super impressed, it came in 2 boxes and the hat was in a very nice slik type bag. This would have survived a major accident in the boxes. Then the real surprise this hat fit like a glove, the product is of really high quality. One awesome purchase well worth the funds spent and I am going to be th top rooster of the groupo.

The perfect hat for our Tom Petty tribute band. Highest quality. Love the bling. Ask for hat padding if you need to buy this hat in a size a bit larger than your actual size.

Looks great, weird fit
The hat is very elegant. Got lots of complements. Looks good with steampunk goggles on them. However, the hat is not oval (head-shaped) enough. On my head, it binds at the front and back -- which is sort-of good since it has gaps on the left and right, and only only the front/back pressure is holding it on. Even so, it rocks back-and-forth, left-right as my head tilts.

This hat (like most products I find on here) is durable, yet elegant. It's reinforced quite well to retain its shape including the slight "bell" shape the brim has. It's not a bad price as well. I'd recommend it.

interesting size
Hat size was a little bit bigger than expected. It was much fatter (side to side) than a normal hat, and much shorter (front to back). It fits on my head, but tents to tilt side to side. I expect I could reshape it, but haven't tried to do so yet, so don't know how that would work.

boyfriend loves it
I ordered this for my boyfriend for our anniversary. it looks just like the picture and fits pretty well (a little big, but that may have been a measuring error on my part). he practically won't take it off!

Great Looking Hat
The John Bull top hat is a great product and fits the era wonderfully. I measured as instructed and ordered the indicated size. The hat I received was slightly large but serviceable. If you want to exchange any item with Historical Emporium you will have no problem but the added shipping costs will double the purchase price of your items!

Lovely topper
Perfect complement to my ensemble, makes me feel I've stepped out of an H.G. Wells novel. Fits well, not too tight, not too loose.

hat
even though i measured my hat size correctly and have ordered a previous hat and it fit perfect, this one does not run true to its size. i was dissapointed that it was too large out of no fault of my own. the size that this hat states is not accurate and I'm stuck with a hat that does not fit due to the restrictions of the return policy. nice hat but the sizes are off. very dissapointing.

Perfect for a semi formal event
When you don't feel like wearing a full sized top hat, this one is a perfect alternative. Great for a fall evening in Florida!

Top marks for top hat
Thank you for providing great quality options for period clothing and accessories. The John Bull top hat is a well made and terrific looking piece that beautifully compliments your Klondike Vest. The quality of your clothing and accessories is superior to any other source I have found for period clothing, costumes, accessories and props. Unlike most other providers, your in stock inventory is large enough that even when I have a last minute need for a piece or even an entire outfit you provide multiple options. And your complete outfits web page not only makes it easy to find pieces that will coordinate wonderfully well, but also provides great inspiration. Well done!

Used this hat for a Willy wonka Birthday party. It looked wonderful! I wish I could post a photo. It came neatly packaged and arrived right away. The color is like a milk chocolate.

This hat is beautiful, and very high quality for the price. However, it is more brown than it appears in the photo-- there is no caramel/ faint orange cast as it appears.

Color Issue
The hat is not the color shown in the photo on my screen. It's much grayer. The one on the screen appears to be brown, a dark camel color. Computer monitor color rendition can vary, yes, but this is more than a few shades of difference. In the industry-standard PANTONE color registry index (available online), a search for "Pecan" yields PANTONE color Pecan Brown 17-1430 TCX and this is close to the website image color. The actual hat I received, however, is closer to PANTONE color Cocoa Brown 18-1222 TCC. Compare. Definite difference. I can live with the color I received (but really would have been nice to have closer match my camel hair overcoat), so I give the 4 Stars instead of 5.

Unforgettable gift
This hat was purchased for a nurse who works for the US Veterans Administration in western North Carolina. She has taken very good care of the people who are patients there and this was a gift of appreciation for her dedication.

Now this is just basic Steam Punk isn't it??? If the hat isn't right nothing else matters. Made in USA. Made to last. This is so good you will want to start looking for a hat box.

I love this hat! I was Willy Wonka for Halloween and this top hat was perfect; however, I quickly realized that this hat really looks great with several of my professional outfits, and I now WEAR IT in my normal everyday life. It is a fine and wonderful hat!

Super Deluxe
This is not a theatrical prop, this is a first-quality hat suitable for everyday wear. Well, everyday wear in certain circles I suppose... Recommend taking it to your local Western emporium and having the hat steamed and sized to fit perfectly. If you do, it's quite comfortable for all day wear.

First top hat
Very great hat. I don't know how long it took to come in because the post office had a mess up and miss placed it, but I was able to track it down and it took a total of 2 and a half weeks to get it from when first ordered. So I have no credible view on the shipping speed. But every thing else is absolutely great. The hat blew me away. I knew it was high quality but this just went way past what I though it was going to be. I will be ordering from this site again.
