Slash Top Hat
Slash Style Top Hat If you've ever fancied looking like Slash from Guns N' Roses then now's your chance! A quick and easy 80's fancy dress idea. Wear with some Biker or Aviator shades, Inflatable Guitar and a black/rock t-shirt with jeans to complete your look. Ever Wonder where Slash got his trademark hat? Slash has had his top hat since 1985, when he decided to shoplift it from a store. At the time, he was still extremely poor and didn’t have the money for it, so he just took it. He needed an accessory for a show in Los Angeles, and wasn’t about to put the purchase off for later. A top hat is a pretty awkward shaped thing to steal, so Slash made no attempt to hide it as he left the store. He just put it on his head and walked out of the store. When he got home he decided the hat was a bit boring, and added one of his belts to it for a little flavor. It has been a trademark part of his look ever since.
