The work original "Men in hat tophat conversing with women" has been achieved by artist Guys Constantin (1802 - 1892)
The tophat or GIBUS passes, in the years 1840, of a simple novelty of the fashion to a symbol of the social condition of the bourgeois man of the XIXe century. Because of his/her/its height, of his/her/its imposing pace and him confèrerait a certain elegance to the man that he/it makes appear bigger, the GIBUS comes to symbolize the respectability, wealth, the dignity and an elevated social rank.
The origin of the GIBUS results from the gentlemen of the country who took in LOUD the sides of their hats OF SHAPE to ride a horse and increased the size of the skullcap in a rudimentary protective goal in case of fall. A system of lace camouflaged inside permitted to maintain it in place solidly.
From 1870, the gibus becomes smaller and are called stove pipe sometimes.
Always considered, at the end of the XIXe century, like a symbol of distinction, the gibus even comes to be part of the uniform of the policeman, the factor and the employee of railroad.
