in certain circles men are still required to wear top hats
(with morning suits) at horse races, like The Royal Ascot, thus retaining the long-established perceived connection between top hats
and wealth, prestige, tradition and the aristocracy. Known as silk hats
and even stove pipe hats
(a la Abraham Lincoln, said to keep important documents inside his top hat
while traveling on horse back), the crown of a top hat
is distinctively tall with a flat top, while the brim nowadays is usually rather stingy and often turned up.
