Introducing the Exquisite Evelyn Top Hat by Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute - NYC's Premier Millinery!

Are you ready to make a statement that turns heads? Our Evelyn Top Hat was born from a unique request for an exaggerated top hat and has become an iconic fashion sensation. Originally crafted in alabaster fur felt, its instant popularity led us to recreate it in luxurious parasisal straw. Whether heading to the Kentucky Derby or stepping out for a special evening, the Evelyn Straw Top Hat guarantees to make you the center of attention.

Key Features:

Luxurious Parasisal Straw: Immerse yourself in opulence with the finest parasisal straw. It's the epitome of elegance and comfort, ensuring you stay stylish and cool all day long.

Versatile Neutral Color: The neutral straw hue complements any outfit effortlessly. It's your canvas to accessorize and express your unique style.

Signature Lambskin Piping: Our attention to detail is unrivaled. The brim of the Evelyn Top Hat is meticulously piped with our signature lambskin, adding a touch of sophistication to your look.

Chic Grosgrain Ribbon Trim: To elevate your ensemble, we've adorned this masterpiece with a matching grosgrain ribbon. It's the perfect finishing touch that exudes refinement and charm.

Two Sweeping Pheasant Tails: Be the embodiment of grace and style with two sweeping pheasant tails that gracefully cascade from your Evelyn Top Hat.

Made to Order: Your hat will be crafted exclusively for you, ensuring a perfect fit and unique touch that's truly yours.

Adjustable Sweatband: Comfort is paramount. The Evelyn Top Hat has an adjustable sweatband so that you can enjoy a snug and personalized fit.

No more blending into the background – it's time to step into the spotlight with the Evelyn Top Hat. 

As a special gift to all of our customers, your hat will be shipped in a Cha Cha's House hat box, perfect for storing your new hat!

Custom Made vs. Made to Order

  • Custom Made

    Custom made hats are created with the client for a special occasion or holiday, horse racing events or just because. In this case we ask that you make an appointment to visit the studio either in person or virtually. We will discuss your needs, choose materials and trims and begin building your custom hat. If you are trying to match an outfit we ask that you provide a swatch. Prices for custom hats start at $650. Please visit the Custom Hats page for more information.

    We look forward to collaborating with you on your hat journey. 

  • Made to Order

    All hats on our website are made to order. Once you click buy we begin working on your hat. We order your materials and start gathering trims. You may notice slight variations in trim. This is due to availability, dye lot changes and of course feathers are each unique. You may notice something extra on your hat. Sometimes we get inspired and add an extra feather or a vintage pin that seems to fit just right on your hat. Especially if you are a repeat client and we have gotten to know your style. 

    Choosing your hat size is very important so we are sure to make a hat that will fit you well. Please visit the hat sizing guide for more information and tips on measuring your head if you are unsure of your head size.
