Imagine a hat that seamlessly combines the elegance of yesteryear with a modern twist, meticulously crafted just for you. Enter the "Topedora," a delightful fusion brought to life by the talented hands at Cha Cha's House of Ill Repute, a woman-owned millinery in New York City.

This hat isn't just an accessory; it's a statement. It's the result of creative minds melding the stately charm of a hand-pleated top hat crown with the quirky tilt of an asymmetrical fedora brim. The Topedora was born from a spark of inspiration a few seasons back and has since become a beloved staple for those in the know.

When you order a Topedora, you're not just getting a hat; you're indulging in a piece of wearable art. Cha Cha suggests donning it a size larger than your usual, to achieve that effortlessly chic, low and slouchy look. This isn't a hat that you simply wear; it's one that you inhabit.

Crafted with a keen eye for detail, the brim is accented with a snazzy black faux lizard piping that adds just the right amount of edginess. It's all tied together—quite literally—with a sumptuous wide grosgrain ribbon that's both understated and striking.

And let's not forget the practicality; the Topedora is a savior for those crisp days when the chill in the air is biting, yet you're not willing to compromise on style. It's a warm hug on a cold day, without the bulk.

Every Topedora is a labor of love, a statement of fashion-forward thinking, and a nod to timeless style. So, when you choose to grace your wardrobe with this unique piece, you're not just keeping up with the trends—you're setting them.

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.
