When it comes to the World of hats, top hats for men make a style statement like no other. Sure other types of men hats say something about the man wearing it but a top hat tells a whole story. The top hat first made it's appearance during the 1600s but did not become the popular style felt hat until 1797 that we know today. It's during the Victorian era in England where the top hat really took off because it was a fashion item that really went well with Victorian style clothing of the time. Originally they were known as stove pipe hats due to the straight rising shape of the crown. Eventually those gave out to the style we are all more familiar with. Top hats for men these days have a crown that starts from the hat band and gently flair up and out to a flat top unlike the stove pipe which stays straight to the top.
