Commissioned by Edward Coke to craft a hat hardy enough to protect his gamekeepers, Lock & Co created the iconic Coke hat (otherwise known as the Bowler hat) in 1849. One of our most enduring hat styles, the Coke's timelessness is owed to its distinctive domed crown and curled brim. Made from stiffened rabbit felt, the Coke hat is fully lined, with a leather inner headband. To ensure the perfect fit, please book an appointment in our London hat shop to have your head measured with the conformateur.
The Town Coke comes with a complimentary white hat box.
Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush will help remove dust and dirt. Brush the hat using short strokes, following the natural direction of the fibre. The Town Coke should be kept away from direct heat. Wet hats should be dried using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge. Felt hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.
