Top Hats

Top Hats is a Birthday card featuring three gentlemen in top hats, with scarves and a speech bubble, ‘Happy Birthday, let’s have a night on the town.’

This is quite a dark card, with the gentlemen looking into the future leading from the viewer, looking towards the promised night out. Their clothing is Edwardian and their scarves are bright and colourful, and there are undertones of a night out to remember.

Edwardian Men About Town

They are self assured and they have money. You can tell from their clothes and their addiction to fashion. There is a touch of flirting with danger and adventure on this night out.

Fast forward from the Edwardian era to a generation ago. The top hats would have gone and these young men would have been in their final year at university. Already they would have taken the entrance papers to join the ranks of civil servants in the Foreign Office.

Working In The City

Fast forward again to the dawn of the 21st Century. This is the generation of men that have already put out feelers to work in the City, perhaps in metals trading. One of them has already amassed a small nest egg from shorting the pound on the eve of the Brexit referendum.

Top Hats

But we are not in modern times. In this image we are in times when the world was more certain. At least that is how it seemed from their perspective. But then a world war awaited them, and who knows which of them would reach his fortieth year.  So let them live life to the full as long as they don’t hurt others, and let them enjoy their night on the town. Life is not a rehearsal, so we are reminded. At least that is one point of view. Another is that behaviour in this world is exactly a rehearsal for what is to come. Who is truth knows any more than these three off into the night?
