For centuries, the top hat has been a mark of distinguishment and class among discerning gentlemen, synonymous with Royal Ascot and weddings. The High Crown Town Shell is crafted from stiffened rabbit felt, trimmed with grosgrain along the brim and finished with a wool felt band. The crown is 2.5cm taller than its relative, the Town Shell. Each topper is fully lined and with a leather inner headband. We also include a complimentary white hat box to keep your topper in and can personalise the hat by monogramming.
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 and silk fibres. Top hats should be restored after every use. Lock offers a range of services – please call the shop on +44 (0) 20 7930 8874 to discuss with our master hatters. Always store top hats in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.
