  • Curled Brim Length: 5 cm
  • Crown Height: 16 cm (2.5 cm taller than its relative, the Town Shell)

Using a hard 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. We also include a complimentary Lock & Co. hatbox to keep your topper in.

Alternatively, bring your Lock top hat to us for a complimentary polish whilst you wait. For our full list of restoration services Read More.

Top Hat
At Lock & Co. we offer a wide selection of styles of hats. What defines a hat style is its form: overall shape, height/shape of the crown, width of the brim, and material type. These define a style e.g., Fedora, Trilby, Panama, Cloche, Tweed cap etc.
Rabbit Fur Felt
Lock & Co. hats are made of the finest quality material. These can range from exclusive Escorial wool, Scottish Tweed, and cashmere to Toquilla straw for our Panama hat.


We are ecstatic to have our Westminster High Crown topper featured on Matt Lucas's head for the December 2020 cover for The Telegraph Magazine, as well is in a very glamorous shoot for the November 2023 issue of Tatler Magazine.
