The London top hat is made from luxurious beaver fur felt and has a finer feel than our Mayfair and Westminster(formerly the Town Shell top hat) rabbit-fur toppers. With its dapper silhouette, the London is ideal for formal occasions such as weddings, Royal Ascot, or garden parties. Although the shape is similar to our other toppers, the London has a more tapered crown than the Westminster.
As well as being durable, the London top hat features a softer interior, so it requires less need for conforming while providing a comfortable fit.
The London is finished with a thin grosgrain band with a bow and, like all our other toppers, is fully satin-lined and has a leather inner sweatband.
We also include a complimentary Lock & Co. hatbox to keep your topper in.
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 top hats in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.
Top hats should be restored after every use. Lock & Co. offers a range of services. Please contact us to discuss with one of our hatters.
