For centuries, the top hat has been a mark of distinguishment and class among discerning gentlemen, synonymous with Royal Ascot and weddings. The Town Shell is crafted from stiffened rabbit felt, trimmed with grosgrain along the brim and finished with a wool felt band. Each topper is fully lined and with a leather inner headband.
We also include a complimentary 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.

Whilst in 344 years we have never before had to close our doors, including through two World Wars, we find ourselves having to shut the shop for the second time in 2020. We very much look forward to when we can open the doors for you again.
