Town Coke

The Coke is one of Lock & Co.'s most enduring hat styles. 

The Coke is a very distinctive style thanks to its domed crown and curled brim. Lock & Co. created the iconic Coke hat (also known as the Bowler hat) in 1849 after being commissioned by Edward Coke to create a hat hardy enough to protect his gamekeepers.

Town Coke


  • Curled Brim Length: 5 cm
  • Crown Height: 11.5 cm
  • Band Width: 2 cm

Using a soft bristle hat brush, gently stroke the hat in a short, anti-clockwise motion. This will remove any dust caught on the fur fibres.

Always store cokes in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.


The Coke hat is made of stiffened rabbit felt, is fully lined, has a leather inner sweatband, and is finished with a grosgrain band.

Bowler Hat
At Lock & Co. we offer a wide selection of styles of hats. What defines a hat style is its form: overall shape, height/shape of the crown, width of the brim, and material type. These define a style e.g., Fedora, Trilby, Panama, Cloche, Tweed cap etc.
Rabbit Fur Felt
Lock & Co. hats are made of the finest quality material. These can range from exclusive Escorial wool, Scottish Tweed, and cashmere to Toquilla straw for our Panama hat.
Standard Brim
Different styles of hats have different shapes to them, including classic, fuller, narrow, and standard fits, or with an oversized or a wide brim or sporting a particular shape - bell, birdcage, etc.
