Comment on Top Hat 'n' Tails

Walk through the City of London and you will still see an occasional top hat. The black silk topper denotes a Government broker a Sterling broker. A top hat is worn to wedding, funerals and even race meetings.

Comment on Top Hat 'n' Tails

As I write this comment, I'm humming the theme tune from 'Top Hat'. the thirties Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers movie. And that's why I don't think this is an English icon, as it's too international and not uniquely English
