Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute in New York City brings to life a piece of history with a modern twist. The Pickwick, named with a nod to the classic literature of Charles Dickens, is a delightfully crafted hat that draws its essence from the enchanting Victorian era. Each Pickwick is meticulously made-to-order, ensuring a touch of bespoke elegance. Imagine the charm of a classic top hat but with a dash of playfulness—the Pickwick is slightly shorter, offering that same delightful sensation when tipped atop one's head, yet it doesn't tower quite as high, making it a unique, wearable piece of art for everyday adventures.

This particular coachman-style hat is adorned with a whimsical dotted veiling that falls gently to the back, hinting at a bygone era of mystery and romance. That sort of detail adds an element of intrigue to your outfit. To complete the look, a sweeping pheasant tail feather curves gracefully along the side, its natural patterns and colors adding an earthy yet refined touch.

And because it’s from Cha Cha's—a woman-owned millinery known for crafting with passion and precision—you can trust that your Pickwick hat is not just an accessory but a statement. It's for the bold, the spirited, and those who aren't afraid to tip their hat to the past while stepping confidently into the night.

Pair the Pickwick with your favorite Doc Martens to add an edge to your step and fingerless gloves to keep your hands ready for whatever the night may bring. Whether it’s a gathering with friends, a night out on the town, or simply a statement to your daily ensemble, this Victorian-style top hat is ready to party, just like you.

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.
