    1880s Bollman Collection Topper by Bollman Hat Company
    The top hat caused a riot the first time it was seen on the streets of London. The perpetrating "haberdasher" was John Hetherington, the hat's designer, who first adorned the style publicly in 1797. According to a contemporary newspaper account, passersby panicked at the sight and ran in terror. Hetherington was hauled into court for wearing "a tall structure having a shining luster calculated to frighten timid people." He was fined £500. By the 1880's, the top hat was worn by men of every station in life for daily and formal wear without fear of fines. The Bollman Hat Company shaped these hats on five-piece wooden blocks which were cured in ovens. Bollman's "hour glass" shapes are still hand blocked and cured in this method today. This hat comes in a special edition Bollman Heritage Box.

    Classic Hat at its best Review by Spencer
    Rating
    I purchased one of these just before a Christmas Dinner event. I paired it with a long black coat and gentleman's cane. The response was immense. The quality of this hat is paramount and the fit is certain. Don't wait for this to come into 'style', just purchase one if you have the attraction to one. You cannot go wrong with Bollman, they have been making these hats for a remarkable amount of time and there is none better. (Posted on 7/3/15)

    I purchased this hat for my husband. We are living historians and Civil War reenactors. This hat is beautifully made of high quality materials, and is perfect to complete his civilian impression. He is difficult to find hats for due to his head size, a (Posted on 10/2/12)
