During my research for this design I was surprised to learn that Jules Verne's main character from his Round the World in Eighty Days storyline never actually travelled by airship. According to the tale Phileas Fogg completed his journey and in doing so, won his wager, travelling by steamboat, sailboat, railroad and elephant. So I duly incorporated a gorgeous enamelled elephant, a compass, a buttoned, black, matt finish taffeta band and goggles with tooled pattern strap. I had to add the unusual gold foil playing cards, a mark of his bet and of course an eight of diamonds alongside a ten of clubs! I hope the gentleman himself would have approved.


The Phileas Fogg is a dark grey top hat with a 5” high crown. It is handmade from 100% wool with all embellishments hand sewn into position, lined with Ratty Tat Hat's branding, pale gold satin and finished to a fine heirloom quality. Each hat is presented in its own Ratty Tat hatbox and securely sent in a double-skin outer box.

Phileas Fogg - 60cms

  • The size shown above is the circumference of the hat's inner headband. We would suggest using a dressmaker’s tape measure to ascertain the head circumference of the wearer (measurement to be taken from above eyebrows and around widest part of head). Ratty Tat Hats are made from heavy wool and therefore quite rigid so measurements need to be accurate in order to provide a comfortable fit.
