This majestic piece, lovingly named "Ringmaster," is more than just a unique top hat; it's a declaration of personal style and finesse, expertly crafted to order by the artisans at Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute. With its towering crown and timeless brim, the Ringmaster is accented with the woman-owned millinery's distinctive lambskin piping, adding a touch of understated luxury to the design.

Adorned with an opulently wide ribbon cascading around the base, this top hat is embellished with delicate coque feathers - a signature trim that adds movement and a hint of whimsy. Whether commanding the boardroom or captivating an audience at a gala, the Ringmaster allows you to orchestrate your day with the confidence of a true showman.

The hat is handcrafted from the finest black fur felt and complemented by black trim, creating a seamless, monochromatic tableau that exudes elegance. Inside, the Ringmaster is just as exquisite, lined with plush black satin that promises comfort with every wear.

For those with a vision as unique as the Ringmaster itself, customization beckons. Engage in a personal consultation via email and explore the possibilities for making this top hat your own. 

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.
