New for Fall: 'Johnnie' Prototype
As you may have gathered, small top hats are my best-selling style. Over the years, I've collected a few different sizes and shapes of mini top hats, to suit different sizes and shapes of people. I've had the 'Johnnie' style around for a little while but up until now have mostly just used it for custom work. With its shorter height but almost-full-size headsize, it's been universally flattering to the people who've tried it on (unlike some of the other top hats, which tend to look best on a particular type of face). It's coming into ready-to-wear rotation for the fall. Here's a prototype of the new style.
