The Top Hat is a wearable Dress item. It requires 6 Silk to craft and a Science Machine to prototype. The Sewing Kit repairs 62.5% of its durability.

It restores 3.3 Sanity per minute while worn.

The Top Hat can also be used to create the Prestihatitator, which is a Tier 1 Magic research station.

The Top Hat can be given to a Pig or Bunnyman to wear, which provides no effect. It will still lose durability while worn.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Top Hat used to cost 200 Research Points to craft and had a value of 10 Research Points when used on a Science Machine.
  • The Top Hat once required the Alchemy Engine to craft. That was changed in the Hungry for Your Hunger update due to the addition of the Prestihatitator, which requires one Top Hat in the recipe and is prototyped with the Science Machine.
  • Willow says "A top hat and a lighter, perfect combination." when examining Top Hat. When equipped with Willow's Lighter, it will completely negate sanity drain at night in normal conditions (not wet, not near enemies, etc.).
  • The Dress Tab's icon is a teal version of the Top Hat.
