collapseable silk opera top hat-invented in 1812 by Antoine Gibus. Originally made out of beaver & rabbit. In silk became the popular choice. My husband has one from the 1840 era, which I have posted in another pic.
Hats from the costume company that worked on The King’s Speech. The movie really had some great hats. I especially love these brown top hats. So many awesome hats! All of the costumes in The King’s Speech were great in my opinion-not just the hats.
