I'm working on a mini top hat and am not sure which brim to use a 1 inch or 1.5 inch brim.
I've included pics below of both brim types, lemme know which one you like best.

I think it depends on what you're going for.  The 1" looks more proportional.  The 1.5" reminds me of a Mad Hatter style hat.

Thanks for the reply. I'm tinkering with ideas but I'm mostly going for a mini top hat that looks balanced. I'm mostly worried about the brim being too small in comparison to the height (2 5/8 inches) of the hat. This hat is a prototype for a series of mini hats that I want to create so I'm mostly looking for a good versatile brim size. Also I'm planning on leaving the brim flat.

In that case, I'd go with the 1".  If you look at full-size top hats, their brims aren't that big, in comparison to their total height.

Agreed, I'd go with the smaller brim. Sometimes it has more to do with the width of the cylinder not the height compared to the brim. Mini hats with wide brims and narrow cylinders look odd.

I've decided to go with the one inch brim. I might use the larger brim for a curved brim, but I agree that the smaller brim looks better proportioned. Thanks yall

I think I like the look of the one inch... maybe it could even be a TINY bit smaller?
