The street is a hard place to conduct business, but it’s a way of life you’ve become very good at keeping. Two coppers jingle in your pocket, but by the end of the day you’re determined to increase the lot to a gold or two. A good card game and a poor ol’ sap is all it takes.

On your way to your regular spot you pass a lovely lady in a fine dress. You may be a ruffian, but with your candid smile you give the lady a tip of your fanciful Top Hat. She looks flattered, which is a good distraction...because now you’ve got a silver to add to the copper in your pocket.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s full-grain quality leather costume Top Hat is handmade and embellished with a cotton canvas and leather band, giving this interpretation of the 19th century fashion a rugged twist. The stitching around the edges and the stiff crown strengthen this hat’s structural stability, so with regular leather care you can expect Epic Armoury’s Top Hat to have a long lifetime. Use this Top Hat to create a steampunk statement or add some interest to your kit.

Available in Brown and Black, and sizes Small, Medium/Large, and X-Large.
