At Lock & Co. Hatters we are delighted to offer our customers made to measure services for tweed caps and Lock Couture as well as a personalisation service for our hats.

Book an Appointment


For customers wishing to purchase a made to measure service, we offer our customers the opportunity to order some of our Lock Couture styles in additional colour options or customisations, as well as the Gill and Turnberry flat caps and the Sandwich bakerboy cap in a tweed of your choice.

Please note: We need to see the tweed beforehand to determine if it is suitable, as some tweeds may be too light or heavy, or the pattern may not be easily matched.

Prices and timing will be confirmed at the initial consultation.

Whether it's for your Royal Ascot outfit or to accompany your general winter wardrobe, we are here to cater to your headwear-related needs.

  • Races
    Learn more

    We are always delighted to sit down with customers to discuss what they are looking for in a hat to match their Races outfits. Perhaps having tried a few on, you’ve fallen in love with our Sonora Headband, but your Royal Ascot dress is green, or you love how our Mayfair Pillbox sits on your head, but none of the colours that it’s currently available in suit your hair colour. Simply let us know exactly what it is you are looking for, and we can go through your options.

  • Everyday
    Learn more

    We'd love to help you personalise your tweed cap so that it feels unmistakeably you. We can make to order the following hats in a customer's own tweed:

    • Our Gill tweed flat cap
    • Our Turnberry tweed flat cap
    • Our Sandwich tweed bakerboy cap

    Please note: We would need to see the tweed beforehand to determine if it is suitable to be used; sometimes they can be too light or too heavy, or sometimes the pattern cannot be matched.

    We do not currently have a selection of tweeds for customers to choose from.

  • Night Event
    Learn more

    Tell us about the exciting night you have planned and let us help you complete your outfit and turn heads with a personalised couture piece. If you show us your outfit, we can discuss what we can do to conjure up the sort of headwear piece you are hoping to accompany it with. After having a look around the women's floor and trying on some of our available couture styles, we can talk about what changes you want to make to which hats and then make a plan to produce the perfect hat to go with your evening attire.
