Top Hat

The top hat was a staple of upper class culture in the 19th and early twentieth century, as men wore it in a number of social gatherings from Galas to opera shows. Unfortunately for the top hat, it’s 2021 and the only time top hat appears in culture is as a representation of capitalism or a mediocre magician. The top hat mainly struggles from the fact that it will never be useful in day to day life, and so unless you want to look like the Monopoly man while going out with your friends, it will almost always stay in your closet until Halloween.
