A subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that includes a fashion and lifestyle aesthetic, steampunk can be traced back to the early 1900's when authors and artists began experimenting with visions of the future and developed a unique style of fashion and technology inspired by then-current steam power, air travel, and complex geared machinery. Hats feature prominently into the clothing of steampunk, specifically hats popular in the Victorian era such as top hats, bowlers, pith helmets, and other formalwear of the 1800's. These are often worn altered with gears, complicated bands, or worn with goggles to give an industrial feel. Steampunk as a genre continues to flourish in yearly conventions, private social clubs, and in popular media (most notably in the extremely popular video game series Bioshock and films such as 1999's "Wild Wild West" and 2011's "Hugo").
We offer a range of top hats with various crown heights and shapes, a number of styles of bowler hats, as well as unique hats that fit some of the more non-traditional steampunk outfits like pith helmets and avaitor hats!
