Ah, the Grimm, a masterpiece of headwear craftsmanship, is not just a hat—it's a statement. Handcrafted with precision and care at our woman-owned atelier in New York City, this top hat carries the essence of a bygone era straight into the heart of contemporary fashion. 

The hat, a beloved design among connoisseurs of classic style, boasts a lush black velour finish, selected for its rich texture and deep color, ensuring that it stands out in any collection. The fur felt material provides a luxurious feel and durability for a lifetime of wear. Around the brim, you’ll find Cha Cha's signature faux lizard leather piping, a detail that adds an exotic twist to the classic top hat silhouette.

A band of black grosgrain ribbon complements the striking brim. However, the pièce de résistance is the natural pheasant tail feather, which provides a splash of organic elegance and completes the Dickensian look we adore.

Whether you’re stepping out for a night at the opera or adding a touch of class to your everyday wardrobe, the Grimm is sure to turn heads and start conversations.

Understanding that style is personal, Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute invites you to make the Grimm your own with custom color requests. Contact us to start the process.

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.
