Only two of the top hats are from Time Travelers the other two are from previous years, But I thought they looked better all together in a row. all of my top hats are silk plush top hats though most people think there beaver. silk plush began replacing beaver around the 1840s. I believe this had to do with the fact that beaver was becoming harder to find because of over hunting. silk also produced a not so heavy hat with higher shine.
|I got this hat at last years Time Travelers Bazaar.|
|I repaired the sweat band and lining |
as well as the hat band on this hat.
|Actually I don't remember were I got this hat.|
|This hat almost has completely straight sides.|
|This hat is in really bad shape,|
I'm going to try my hand at repairing it.
|This one is to small for me but it will fit my dad or sister.|
|Made in Toronto or Montreal.|
Odd fellows cap and medallion. I like this style of cap with the stiff brim.
It looks a lot like a military cap. Unfortunately I cant were this cap because its to fragile.
A couple of detachable collars size 14.5 These collars just barely fit me a size 15 would probably fit a little better.
