Frequently Asked Questions 

What’s the difference between a bowler hat and a top hat?

Bowler hats are round, with a shorter crown. Bowler hats are traditionally associated with businessmen and the working class. On the other hand, top hats have a taller, cylindrical crown, and are traditionally associated with formal attire worn by the upper class. But here, in the 21st century, anyone can rock these iconic styles. Get yourself a classy top hat or bowler hat with the expert Australian hatmakers at Stanton Hats.

What are bowler and top hats made from?

Bowler hats are traditionally made from hard felt — meanwhile, top hats are traditionally made from beaver fur or silk. Modern bowler and top hats are made of wool, felt, and other more durable materials. Stanton Hats’ master crafted bowler and top hats are made from 100% high-quality wool or wool felt. Our top hats come with a quality inner satin-lined finish.

Are the sizes for bowler hats and top hats the same?

Yes — our hats use the same measurements for head size, but the brim size and height differ between styles. For example, bowler hats are shorter, with a curved brim, while top hats are much taller. Our bowler hats and top hats come in small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes, so there’s something for everyone.
