The elegant and timeless Westminster High Crown top hat (formerly the High Crown Town Shell top hat) is perfect for weddings, garden parties and Royal Ascot. It is crafted from the finest stiffened rabbit felt, trimmed with grosgrain along the brim and finished with a wool felt band. The crown is 2.5cm taller than the Westminster (formerly the Town Shell).
Each High Crown Westminster topper is fully lined with white satin bearing the Lock & Co. logo and has a leather inner sweatband.
We also include a complimentary Lock & Co. hatbox to keep your topper in.
We advise making an appointment to have your head measured with a Conformateur at our London hat shop to ensure the ideal fit for our top hats.
Our Westminster High Crown topper featured on Matt Lucas's head for the December 2020 cover of The Telegraph Magazine.
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.
