Do you know the story of the first Top Hat public appearance?

 In January 1797, a certain Hetherington appeared in the streets of London. The hat maker walked along the thoroughfare wearing a top hat in the shape of a stovepipe. According to a newspaper account, “passersby panicked at the sight. Several women fainted, children screamed, dogs yelped, and an errand boy’s arm was broken when he was trampled by the mob.” So Hetherington was taken to court for wearing “a tall structure having a shining luster calculated to frighten timid people.” The hat maker relied in his defence on the right of every Englishman to place what he wanted on his head.The London newspaper, The Times, wrote the following day: "Hetherington's hat points to a significant advance in the transformation of dress. Sooner or later, everyone will accept this headwear. We believe that both the court and the police made a mistake here."

Effectively short after the top hat was adopted by the Dandys and the rest is history: there has never been a more sophisticated and dominating hat in fashion than the top hat.

Le Grand Hat is an invention that combines headgear from two different eras: the street style baseball cap and the classic top hat

Risks and challenges

As a project manager I have completed dozens of complex projects: It is this experience that allows one some insight into possible snags that may occur beforehand. As this is my first time working in this particular medium with this distinct manufacturer, I hope to tackle any challenges with the same force as I am used to.
