Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush or clean pencil rubber will help remove dust and dirt.

Alternatively, use a soft nailbrush and a little soapy water. Straw hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.

Avoid wearing a straw hat in the rain. If it gets wet, dry using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge.


This boater is made from 100% pedal straw. It is trimmed with a navy and red polka dot ribbon and is finished with an internal soft leather sweatband to keep your hat secure.

Styling & Fitting

This hat is the perfect hat of choice for calendar events such as Henley Royal Regatta and Wimbledon. Popularised in the 19th century, the boater is made distinguishable by its stiff flat crown and brim, as well as being adorned by a ribbon.

Find Your Size and Style

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.
Pedal Straw
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.
Every part of a hat has its purpose. Discover the features or aesthetic of each hat and how it will specifically enhance your hat-wearing experience.
