Video of the Week: Style Like Nowhere Else

A video interview with Martin Ellis Jones of Hetherington Hats reveals some fascinating details about the world of top hats

 

Vintage ‘toppers’ are a staple at Royal Ascot and given silk top hats are no longer produced anywhere in the world, such people as Chelsea based Martin Ellis Jones have become the go-to experts that those with great taste flock to when in need of formal attire.

Our Video of the Week, titled Style Like Nowhere Else and made and shared by Ascot Racecourse on their YouTube channel, features a 2:33 minute interview with Ellis Jones in which he comments:

 

“You can’t really do much with a top hat to ruin it. They can steal it or set fire to it but if you sit on it or run it over with a car, we can mend it in the workshop, it’s not a problem”.

 

With two days of the finest racing in the world still to go, readers heading to Berkshire would do well to heed the words of Martin Ellis Jones. He concludes: “It’s all style and no content… Take the trouble and you’ll stand out a mile”.
