Not to be confused with the Fancy Top Hat, Spiked Top Hat, Rare Friendship Hat, Freedom Hat, Founders' Hat, Rainbow Top Hat, or Classic Top Hat.

The Top Hat is a members-only land clothing item that is worn on the head. It was first released on June 15, 2010, at Jam Mart Clothing, but it later went on clearance soon after Beta Testing ended. It returned for a short period on January 17, 2013, in the Canyons Pathway "Hat Shop" during the Hatapalooza event. It was released for its third time on May 4, 2017, as part of another short Hatapalooza event.


The Top Hat is a tall striped hat, with a wide, round brim. The crown of the hat is narrow near the brim and flares out wider as it goes towards the flat top. Band circles around the narrow base and four round buttons stick out around the top edge of the hat. This item has eight original colors and four rare variants for a total of twelve color varieties.

  • During Beta Testing, there were additional colors available that were removed from stores such as the green color and the gray color variants.

  • There are other versions of the Top Hat that have different names and were released for different reasons.
  • Many other items have a similar style to the Top Hat such as the Gingerbread Top Hat and the Rainbow Top Hat.
  • Despite their similar names, the Fancy Top Hat looks very different from this item, being much smaller and more curved around the edges.
  • This item can be bought in Play Wild (Game) and AJ Jump.
  • When it returned for the May 2017 Hatapalooza, it was put on sale for 50% off (75 Gems).
  • This item appears to be displayed outside of Jam Mart Clothing, despite it not currently being sold there.
